We are sharing our recent interview with a talented and inspiring author Melissa Pombo. She has recently released a book titled The Last Bite.
Pro Media Mag : Tell us about yourself and what inspired you to write?
Melissa Pombo : My childhood was not one that you would call advantageous. During the really hard times, I would delve into my imagination and create stories in my mind. I would play them out like movies. These moments helped me step away from my own reality. Because of this, I write. I have honed my imagination that sometimes the lines between reality and make believe are blurred.
Pro Media Mag : What has influenced you the most as a writer?
Melissa Pombo: Each book that I have read, and there has been many, have all influenced me as a writer.
Pro Media Mag : The Last Bite, is an interesting book. How do you think this book can have an impact on the society?
Melissa Pombo : I am hoping that THE LAST BITE, can give a new perspective into the supernatural world. I try and create my own rules that my creatures live by. That is the best part about being an Author, I dictate the narrative and boundaries.
Pro Media Mag : What are the challenges you faced while writing and publishing this book?
Melissa Pombo : When I write, the most challenging aspect is finding the time to sit down and put pencil to paper. Life always seems to get in the way. I am sadly a very impatient person, so the most challenging part of publishing is having to wait.
Pro Media Mag : What will be the goal of your next book?
Melissa Pombo : I have two books right now that are in the works. The first, HOW NOT TO BECOME A VAMPIRE, will be launching sometime this month. It is a fun adventure and I cannot wait for others to read it.
My next book that I am working on is the retelling of THE LAST BITE. I wrote it when I really had not found my courage and voice as a writer. I know now that I can improve an already good story.
Pro Media Mag : What advice will you give your younger self?
Melissa Pombo : I would tell myself to take the chance. Do not deny yourself an adventure just because you are scared. You only have one life to live, do not throw it away because you are too shy to speak up.
