ABOUT DALLAS CORYELL
Dallas Coryell is a musician and author residing deep in the untamed wilds of Michigan, USA, where he desperately attempts to assign meaning to his world through bouts of maniacal creative catharsis and pitifully doomed hopeless romantic fantasies.
1- how long have you been writing?
I penned my first “novella” in 5th grade entitled “King Arthur and the Gnome King”. I was obsessed with the story of King Arthur, and naturally, I wanted to combine it with my love of evil monsters. Mostly I loved the feeling of taking readers to another world. My dad said it was great 😉
2- Is there a certain genre you’d like to get into?
3- Who designed your (latest) book cover?
The current cover for Melody’s Key was created by Sabre Gray & Bane Cover Studio. The studio owner, Lou, read the book and was so inspired that she wanted to give the story a cover that better represented its spirit. I did the original cover almost as an afterthought just before the book’s release. Being new to the literary world, I greatly underestimated the importance of a compelling cover image. Thankfully Lou took mercy on me and helped me retire the original 🙂
4- Where do your ideas come from? There is a strange and wonderful mix of sci-fi affinity, nerdy pop-culture, and hopeless romantic obsession that supplies most of my “middle of the night” ideas. The first time someone said there was no way to blend these concepts I was inspired to prove them wrong.
5- If you weren’t a writer, what would you be doing?
6- Do you ever experience writers block? If so how do you get over it?
7- How did you come up with your title?
8- what is your perfect writing spot?
9- What do you do in your free time?
11- Do you write friends, family, or even strangers you met into your novels? This may sound a bit cliche, but there are pieces of myself and my friends/family in almost every character. Tegan is hypersensory and sees the world in vivid romantic detail (hence the intense descriptions), which is something I have always experienced. She aches to share it with someone, but has been hurt, and so has resigned herself to being alone. Mason and I share a fondness for strong, independent, slightly emotionally unavailable musicians that we can “save” by filling them with love. Although, he is WAY cooler than I’ll ever be 😉 Simon and Ryleigh are masters of double entendre, dirty jokes and pop culture references, as are my friends and I when we go to the pub 😉 Tegan’s parents share some of the lessons I’ve learned about people and love, which help Tegan on her journey to heal and let Mason into her heart.
12- If you were a superhero what would your name be?
