Interview with Dani Amore, Author of 'Beer Money'

Welcome to the virtual book tour for Beer Money, sponsored by Promotional Book Tours. Today, author Dani Amore is giving us a chance to get to know her and her work a little bit better. Thanks for stopping by! 

What was the inspiration behind 'Beer Money'?

A love of beer.  A passion for Milwaukee.  And an obsession with history..

Which characters spoke to you the most during the writing process?

Burr Ashland speaks directly from my soul.  He's a guy who values his friends, cares about people, and knows how to have a good time.

If you could turn this into a movie, which actors would you choose to play each role?

Ben Affleck would make a great Burr Ashland.  Halle Berry would be perfect as Eve Rochelle.

What kinds of challenges do you face when writing a mystery versus other genres?

The challenges are always the same:  creating characters the reader will care about, and a story that keeps them turning the pages.

Who are your favorite sleuths written by other authors?

Off the top of my head, I love Harding, as written by Jon Wessel.  And Alex McKnight, as written by Steve Hamilton.

What other projects do you have in the works?

I have a new, standalone thriller that will be released soon.  And I'm working on the sequel to BEER MONEY, it's called NAKED ALE.

When did you know you wanted to be a writer?

When I was in 7th grade and I started writing a western that was really a poor imitation of Louis L'Amour.  Back then, I knew I could do better and I've never stopped trying.

What was it like winning the 2011 Independent Book Award for Crime Fiction?

I was really honored.  DEATH BY SARCASM was a book I really believed in.  The main character, Mary Cooper, is a woman people either love or hate.  Her sarcasm is very caustic and when I was writing the book I had the choice to either tone it down and make her more mainstream, or keep her true to my original vision.  I left her as is, and she now has a loyal following. 

What is something readers may be surprised to learn about you?

I love to fish.  Anywhere, anytime.  

Anything else you would like to add?

Just that I love to hear from readers and I answer all of my emails:  dani (at) daniamore (dot) com.

Thanks for your time!

Thank you!
