*Author Feature: Normandie Alleman


Our next author feature introduces us to the lovely Normandie Alleman! Normadie is a fantastic multi-genre author & a recent addition to the USA Today best sellers list! 
Please check out this awesome interview & don't forget to check out Normandie's author fan page & book info on the bottom of the feature!


1) Why did you decide to start writing? 

I was a blogger, and I was inspired to try writing fiction when I heard Stephanie Meyer say that the story in Twilight came to her in a dream. It made me vow to write down my next dream. It happened to be a dirty one, and things took off from there.


2) Do you think authors can succeed in multiple genres or should they stick with a single genre?

Oh, I hope authors can succeed in more than one genre because this year I’m starting two other pen names (Amity Allen has a YA Cozy Mystery already and N.D. Hill will be releasing a psychological thriller later this year). I read in several genres so I wanted to stretch myself and write in other genres. It keeps my work fresh.


3) What do you feel is the biggest reward to you with writing? 

I love hearing from readers!


4) Who are some of your favorite authors & why? 

Lisa Gardner, Jodi Picoult, F.X. Toole


5) What are the biggest hurdles to overcome as an author? 

Discoverability. It’s difficult to get noticed with so many new books being released all the time.


6) Is there any advice that you can offer for new writers? 

Keep working on craft. Always work on craft. You can always get better.


7) Tell us a few random personal things about yourself personal & professional! 

I’m addicted to salt. I put it on almost all my food. But don’t worry – I don’t have high blood pressure. Also, I have a 500 lb. pet pig named Petunia. She lives outside thank goodness because pigs are super smart, and she would have figured out how to open the refrigerator if I let her near it.



  1. This is great because you're new to me but reading a little bit about you made my decision to follow you and see your work more easily! Anxious to read work����
