Author Feature: Larissa Hinton

I had the chance to interview author Larissa Hinton. The young adult fantasy and paranormal romance author grew up in Virginia Beach, Virginia and Chesapeake, Virginia. She now lives in northern Virginia, but she always looks forward to going back to the sweet smell of the salty ocean.

Larissa has always loved writing since the age of 12 and hasn’t stopped since. After many years of writing whimsical tales of romance and fantasy, she is now proud to be a self-published author. When she’s not writing, she’s teaching English at a local middle school.

When seen out of the classroom, Larissa is shopping for the next great Wii game, searching for undiscovered treasure (a.k.a. sparkly jewelry) and plucking some fresh fruits (or vegetables, dependent on the year) out of her small garden.

Larissa Hinton is currently author of Everblossom: A Short Story and Poetry Anthology. However, be on the lookout for Angel Diaries (a paranormal romance) and Everblossom 2: A Second Anthology of Short Stories and Poems!

If you want to know more about this author and her sarcasm, then check out her blog ( and click on FAQs.

Tell us about your book:
Everblossom: A Short Story and Poetry Anthology is a collection of short stories and poems that explore the three stages of a flower that correlates to the human different stages of life but with a paranormal and fantasy twist. Here’s more information about it in the blurb:
An anthology that will quench your thirst for more than the ordinary.
Everblossom is a journey through poems and short stories that may seem ordinary on the surface but dig a little deeper and the world not only shifts… it changes.
The author who brought you Iwishacana/Acanawishi, now brings you a dash of everything from dark fantasy to the paranormal to romance. So prepare yourself to delve into the three stages of the flower from bud to blossom then back to seed; you’ll go through them all with a whole new perspective on what it all truly means.What is your favorite character or element of your novel?
My favorite character in my anthology is Jia since she’s a tough female character that is beautiful and unique from the inside out. Additionally, I loved creating her. I feel like she could truly be my daughter in so many respects especially since our sarcasm is so similar.What book or author has been most inspirational for you, and why?

Stephenie Meyer has been most inspirational author for me because she inspired me to push the boundaries on my own writing. For so long I wrote only in two genres: fantasy and romance. I actually went out on a limb and explored other genres in my writing and reading journey. I will always be thankful to her for that.If you were to be stranded on a desert island, what non-survival-related item would you bring along that you couldn’t live without?
Hmm, that’s a tough one. I could never live without for sure is my cell phone. It’s not that I would use it to keep in contact (even though that’s a bonus), I have a function on my phone where I can write notes and I use that to construct many of my stories on the go. I could never leave the house without it!Are you working on any other projects at the moment?

Absolutely! I’m working on my YA paranormal romance called Angel Diaries. Here’s a snippet of the blurb (the cover for Angel Diaries is attached):

Lindsey’s life couldn’t have been any more ordinary. So, she had two guys fighting over her, a psychic friend and a school dominated by Goths but, other than that, life was good. That is until horrible nightmare start about her mother being ripped apart by a monster changed her life from the inside out. Literally. Her whole world was full of lies. She’s not even human. She’s an Angel.
This book is recommended for 16 years or older due to adult scenes and situations.

What question do you wish I had asked?
I wish you would have asked something about my favorite book (Nightshade by Andrea Cremer btw).
