Viviana MacKade is visiting and talking about being a Panster or a Plotter #MFRWAuthor #Plotter #Panster


1.       Are you a panster or a plotter or perhaps a bit of both?

A bit of both. I plot the story in general, what will happen and when. But then I’ll let the characters move withing it freely.


2.       Which comes first - characters or plot for you?

Could be one or the other. Or a third thing that passed in front of my eyes while I was chasing my girl, who was chasing my son, who was chasing the dog…. Really, it’s never the same.


3.       What are you working on now? Is this a book in a current series or something totally new?

Nothing. I think I’ll go back to a romantic suspense I have almost finished, but I need a moment to decompress.


4.       Do you have some kind of object or place that figures in most of your books? I use gems a lot, hospitals and caves.

I’ve been thinking a lot about it, and I don’t think I do…


5.       Do you write everyday or just when the spirit hits?

I write when I can. Baby’s naps, late at night, on my phone while the kids are playing. Crazy times.


6.       Where can we find you?

Mostly, on my blog. I hate *hate* social media, so the only thing I do (and absolutely love) is my blog. All my info are there.



7.       Who are your favorite authors? What about a book you’ve enjoyed?

Nora Roberts. No need to say more.

I’m reading Charming by Elliott James. It’s so much fun and there’s another Valkyrie , although she’s very different from mine.
