Dreamlike State (The Magic of the Black Forest #1) by Macy Farmer Interview


Natalia spends her days in her dreamlike world fantasizing about love to escape from reality.

Bradley has it all except for the one thing he wants most, a soul mate to spend eternity with.

After tragically losing her parents, Natalia takes a vacation that leads her on a journey, which brings them together.

Together they face the challenges of a jealous ex-lover, an estranged father and a sadistic friend. They all have one thing in common, to keep Bradley and Natalia apart. And they’ll do anything to end their relationship, even murder.

Will Bradley and Natalia’s love be enough to defeat all who wish to destroy it?

About the Book:
Do you have a favorite character? 

It’s hard for me to pick a favorite character but the two I am fond of most are Bradley and Colleen.
Why are they your favorite?

Bradley has all the qualities I admire most in a man: humble, loyal, devoted, intelligence and a true Knight in shining armor.

Colleen because she’s always slapping the shit out of her mate Jesse.
What do you hope readers will get from your book? 

Even if only for a brief moment, a chance to escape from reality.

About the Author:

What/Who inspires you?
My sister inspires me every day. The last few years of her life she battled breast cancer. During that time she endured the horrible side effects of chemo, suffered with pain, raised three children, worked full time and she fulfilled her lifelong dream of getting a college degree. Through it all she never once said, “Why me?” She lived the remaining years of her life as if any one of those days could be her last. She was an amazing woman.

Hardest aspect of writing? 
The hardest part is the editing. I have a tendency to use all ‘tenses’ in one paragraph. Sentence structure can, at times, be difficult for me as well. When I write I just type without thinking. The character is telling the story and is usually talking much faster than my fingers can type.

The best part about writing is the romance. I’m a hopeless romantic, believe in soul mates and love at first sight. All, make it easy for me to write romance.

Who is your writing hero? 
I’ve never really thought about it. There are so many talented authors out there that have inspired me throughout the years. My list is endless.

About the Future:

What’s next for you?
The Magic of Black Forest: The Guardian Dragon Princess. It’s the fifth book of the series and will be told by Anabel, a dragon shifter. 

One outrageous goal for the future?

I’m presently fulfilling my outrageous goal of becoming a good author. My future goal is to continue writing without it becoming a ‘job.’ If writing starts to feel like a job, it won’t be fun anymore. It will crush my dream.

Do you have any advice you'd like to share with other aspiring writers?

Write your thoughts down or you could forget them. Read. Finish every book you read, even if you don’t like it. You can learn a lot from books you don’t like. Keep an open mind, let your imagination run wide and trust in your editor. Most important, never give up on your dream of becoming an author. Anything is possible so reach for the stars!


Sweet or salty? 

It depends what we’re actually talking about. *Wink wink* I like my man to be sweet on the outside but salty on the inside.

Beach, plains or mountains? 

The mountains. Black forest is locating in the rural mountains of mid-upper Pennsylvania. It soothes my soul and awakens my creativity.

Online, letters or in person? 

It depends on who I’m talking to. I prefer in person but that’s not always an option available when friends and family live in different parts of the country. Online is easiest but I still enjoy sitting down and writing a good ole fashion letter.

Ebook or print? 

Print. There’s something about holding a book in your hand. Technology has failed me once or twice, so I always carry a printed book or two when traveling. Typically I purchase most books via eBooks. The ones I enjoy the most, I’ll purchase in print as well so that I can read them over and over.

Born and raised in southeastern Pennsylvania. The youngest of three, Macy started telling stories at an early age. As a young adult she began writing poems and short stories.

Today, Macy, a romantic with a creative imagination spends most of her free time writing. If she’s not writing or reading, she enjoys riding ATV’s with her husband on the trails of upper Pennsylvania’s State Forests.
Her love for writing romance, reading and life, led her to fulfill her childhood dreams of becoming a Paranormal Romance Writer.
