Interview with Tabatha Vargo -Wicked Fate

What inspired you to write Wicked Fate? I’ve always been very sensitive to spiritual things. I won’t elaborate because I’ll sound like a crazy person, but if you mix those strange things with the vivid imagination of a fourteen year old girl, you get Wicked Fate. The idea came to me then and stayed with me until I sat down to write it when I was twenty-six.

Do you have a character you enjoyed writing the most? Yes, I do! I have a book coming out hopefully in January, it’s titled On the Plus Side. I really enjoyed writing the two main characters of that book…Lilly and Devin. It’s a plus size romance novel, and as a girl who’s never had a skinny day in her life, I related well with the characters. I honestly think I reached a new place mentally while I was writing it.

Is there a genre you would like to try? I’ve read at least a book a week since I was eleven years old. I’m pretty sure I’ve read all genres by now.

Could you live without coffee? I could. I’ve actually just started drinking coffee this year. It’s yummy!

Here are some questions you can choose to answer! Please include
links, a picture of you, and book covers, as well as trailers!!

What’s your favorite thing about the writing process? I write best when I’m in an emotional state. Some of my best writing was done in some of the darkest times of my life. For me, writing is freedom. It’s a chance to step out of my life and live through someone else. That could be a golden opportunity if you’re having a rough day.

Three facts about you? I have a silly seven-year-old daughter that I call Mini, short for mini me. I love old plantation houses, antiques, and Chistmas decorations. I have a purple dragonfly tattoo on my right wrist. It’s staring at me as I try to think of interesting things about myself.

Do you believe in UFOs? I find it hard to believe that there are all these planets and only one has life on it. I’m sure there’s more out there than we realize.

Would you rather have fame or fortune? Hmmm, I’ve never been rich and I’ve always been pretty happy so I think I’d rather have fame.

Pick one book that is your all time favorite? The first one that comes to mind right now is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte.

Embarrassing guilty pleasure? Bleach. The smell of it literally makes my mouth water. It started when I was pregnant and never went away.

Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Definitely an extrovert.

Bad Boy or Nice Guy? Bad boy

Mustache or No Mustache? I love facial hair on a man, but just a mustache is weird. I love the whole connected goatee/mustache combo. HOT!

Preppy Dresser or T-shirt and Jeans Guys? T-shirt and jeans guy.

Your thoughts on Self Publishing. It’s a lot of work, but I like having the control of my work. The marketing from a publishing company would be nice though. 

Your thoughts on Zombies. I like The Walking Dead, but I have a very weak stomach so I look away a lot. They aren’t my favorite.

Do you believe in the Loch Ness Monster? Not really, but I think that every fiction comes from some form of fact. So, you never know!

Are you a tweeter, a re-tweeter, or you couldn’t care less about Twitter? I could care less about Twitter. I try to keep up with it, but it’s kind of boring.

Your favorite color of Skittle. Red

Your favorite memory. The day my daughter was born, although I’m pretty sure I almost died.

Your favorite way to spend an evening. With my family. Usually, with my husband and daughter on the couch watching a show and me sitting next to them with my face in a book. It’s the life!

Tell us what you are working on now! I’m working on the sequel to Wicked Fate and a new adult novel called On the Plus Side that I hope to release in January.

Anything you would like to say to the aspiring authors reading this blog? Thank you! This has been many years in the making for me. My writing has helped me through a lot of dark times in my life, so it means a great deal to me that I have so many supportive friends that enjoy my work.

Thanks, Emily! Great questions! :)



What if you lived in fear of yourself?


For Mage McPherson being afraid of herself is just the norm. Thanks to that fear, being a loner in a small town never bothered the mysterious Mage. Once she received her secret abilities, she figured being alone was the safest way to be. That all changes during her sophomore year at Summerville High when Adam, her equally mysterious secret crush, starts to notice her.


Afraid that she might harm Adam, Mage must learn to either control or deny herself. With Adam by her side she’s more powerful than she’s ever been, but is she powerful enough to defeat her worst nightmare? She learns a hard lesson about love and magic when her destiny comes to collect.


About the Author:


Tabatha has been writing since she could pick up a pencil. Her first publication was a little poem in her elementary school paper, from that point on she was hooked. When she was a teenager, she traded in her girly magazines for personalized writing notebooks.

At nineteen, she met her own personal prince charming and writing took a back burner for a while. She is now married to that prince and the mother of a beautiful Six year old princess/rock star. Once her daughter was born, writing came back into her life, and she finished her very first novel in May of 2009.

She is pursuing a Bachelors in English and hopes to one day teach while continuing to write.

As a stay-at-home mom and full-time student, Tabatha enjoys the freedom of spending a good bit of her days doing what she loves the most…writing.
