About Stephanie Salvatore
Stephanie Salvatore was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio. She lives, breathes, and drinks in fan-girling over her favorite celebs, her dog, and being a self-appointed social media snob. She’s got a wild imagination by nature, which drove her to write. Steph tries to stay true to the phrase, “Love Yourself First.” LYF is what inspired her to publish her first book. When she’s not slaving over creating words to form a story, you can find her feeding her caffeine addiction, traveling or spending time with her friends and family.
How long have you been writing?
I’ve been writing for about twenty years.
Do the characters all come to you at the same time or do some of them come to you as you write?
I’m a plotter. So I develop my characters and their story lines before I write.
What kind of research do you do before you begin writing a book?
Location, sceneries of the location. I’ll watch Youtube videos of the area and try to get a solid grasp on what it’s like. Vocational research for certain careers.
Do you see writing as a career?
I wish it could be my only career, but I do consider it my second full-time job because I put a ton of time into everything between plotting, writing, and marketing on social media.
Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?
I write one book at a time, but I also have a timeline of story line development for several novels after this one.
If you could have been the author of any book ever written, which book would you choose?
Harry Potter, because the imagination of JK Rowling is out of this world!
