My Chat with AR Von

Hello and welcome!

Today I have a lady who I met before she became a famous published author. She is awesome and a riot, we shared many giggles over the years…. and she actually made me like zombie books… well.. almost-zombie actually 😉 I even had Pete, my “6 foot 3, and built like a well-oiled machine” hunk book boyfriend, for a chat over on my old blog. Will have to get him over to this one soon and have Tank join in too 😉

Please welcome AR Von!

ME-AR Smile.jpg

A.R. was born and raised in Bronx, NY and is the oldest daughter of two girls. She holds an Associate’s Degree in Computer Science and Information Technology, which was only briefly used.

She’s a mother of two entertaining teen boys (as well as a lovely fawn Chihuahua, whom she considers her furry daughter.) She’s also a wife to a delightfully handsome and amazingly funny man-beast. She loves anything dragon and fantasy related. In her free time she enjoys exercising, listening to music, hiking, cooking, dancing and writing. She also loves a great adventure in and out of a book!

She writes to free her mind of its constant wondering and priceless clutter. She thrives on the fact she can share some of it with readers that have the same passion for a great story.

She also loves to hear from her reader’s and chat away, so feel free to reach out to her any time.


Her books are varied genres, my fave is the Wunder series, the almost-zombie series I mentioned above. Love the trailer made by the talented Leanore Elliott at Wicked Muse Productions.

And now onto the grilling… err… I mean chat…

Do you have a nickname?
‘Babe’ from my hubby and ‘mama dukes’ from my boys and ‘hey, hey you’ from strangers

What is one word best describes you?

What makes you laugh out loud?
Anything spontaneously funny … my pets get me almost daily.

What is your favourite smell? What does it remind you of?
Evergreen trees, the scent reminds me of the peace and family gathering I once experienced during the holidays when I was little. Boy do I miss those days sigh

Favourite place to spend time in.
The beach, when I can get there. At home, it’s my “dragon den” that you’ll find me in most.

Is there a genre that you refuse to read?
Most historical non-fiction, I’m sorry for those fans of the genre, but what I’ve read has been truly depressing and puts me to sleep zzz

Writing! What started it?
Poetry! I started off at about 5 or 6 writing poetry for my mother. She once was my sun, moon and stars.

If you could choose another career what would it be?
I have two I’ve thought of in the past, drill sergeant or a female wrestler. I just love the thrill of either one LOL

Audiobooks! Any plans to have any of your books in audio format?
Maybe once more people request them from me. So far, I’ve had none.
I would love to hear Pete’s voice sigh

Does your work convey a specific emotion or message?
Some does. One example is my based on a true story short: Listen, Just Once. It gives a look inside of an abused child’s mind, how she deals with it and how much she was “listened to”. I wrote it with hopes to give some out there holding in their past, or their present inside to let it out, raise their voice and move forward in life. Life is too short, and that’s too much pain to hold onto to truly live a happy life. I honestly hope the story helped even one person

Who is your intended audience and why should they read your books?
Wow, I say my aim is for a diverse audience as I’ve written a few genres to date. Yes, most is paranormal, but I also have erotic, erotic thriller, contemporary romance and am adding on to the list as we speak ;)
 The reason why I do this? Well, why should I only allow my mind to express one single thing when it’s packed with so much to offer so many? I just can’t bring myself to do it and hope my readers find enjoyment in the variety that’s offered to them.

What is next in your writing?
I have a few in the works and I just released a paranormal romance titled Reap What You Sow.

Yes, it sounds like it may be frightening and gory, but it’s not. It’s a sweet—different type of paranormal romance that also helped me to express one of my loves … you’ll have to read it to see for yourself hee hee
You are such a tease!!

Thank you so much for having me! I always feel at home in your company hugs

It is always a pleasure chatting with you Ava! I will be waiting for Pete and Tank to drop by 😉 Say hello to Wunder for me!


Thank you for joining me today and I hope you enjoyed the chat.
