One of my favorite things to do as an author is meet other authors and get to know them. Today, I’m hosting Vicki-Ann Bush. She’s originally from Long Island, New York, and now resides in Las Vegas, Nevada, where the desert has given her inspiration for several books.
Salt of the Earth Publishing was the first to publish her children’s book, Winslow Willow the Woodland Fairy, followed by The Queen of It, a chapter book for ages six to ten. After settling into Young Adult fiction, her first release was the novella series, The Dusk Chronicles, a time-travel romance set in Las Vegas.
Currently from Solstice Publishing, Miss. Bush has several titles including the historical romance novel, The Garden of Two about the perils of World War I through the eyes of young lovers in Long Island, NY. A paranormal romance novella series The Fulfillment, which is centered in Boulder City, Nevada, and Procurement, the second book in The Fulfillment series. Also featured in the collection is Room 629, a sci-fi book. Taking place in Primm, Nevada, it follows a group of friends as they uncover a life altering truth for everyone on the planet. And the short YA paranormal horror, The Joshua Tree.
Today, Miss. Bush is promoting Room 629.
About the book:
Jesse Marshall and her friends just wanted a weekend getaway. After four years of college, cramming sessions, late night book vigils and the epiphany of finally knowing what you want to do with your life—or not, they needed a few days to let go and relax. Forty-five minutes away from their home town of Las Vegas, Primm Nevada, was close enough for their limited schedule and a few days of celebration.
But their carefree weekend quickly crumbles after they witness a young woman standing in the middle of a casino, screaming and bloodied. After security takes her away, the friends begin to unravel a mystery that none of them were prepared for and a horror that would change everything.

Why did you decide to write this book?
It was conceived after a night of too much wine, so I’ll say the alcohol spoke to me.
What genre is your book?
Science Fiction, New Adult
Do you consider your book character-driven or plot-driven?
A little of both actually. It started out character driven and somewhere along the way the plot took over.
What makes your book unique?
Unique is a funny word in today’s society, I think of it more as an idea that has molded itself around others that have come before me.
Do you plot ahead of time, or let the plot emerge as you write?
I have the basic idea, but the plot definitely evolves and takes its own path.
How do you develop the names for your characters?
Most of the time, they come to me as I’m thinking of the character. But once in awhile a name stumps me, and that’s when I take it to Google.
How do you decide on the setting?
I get my inspiration from what’s around me, so the setting comes from there most of the time.
Do you have a writing mentor?
Hmm, mentor sounds personal. As if I should know the person. I don’t have someone on a personal level, but my favorite author and inspiration is Dean Koontz.
What’s your writing schedule?
I try to write during the work week, but occasionally I will sit down and pump some words out on a Sunday morning.
Do you have a favorite place to write?
My office. A.K.A., The Writing Room. Not very original, I know.
Anything else you’d like to add?
Only that I’m fortunate to be able to do what I love. Writing is like breathing air, it feeds my life.
