Interview With An Author Who Enraptured Us All: S.C. Stephens


I think by now, you all know how much I love the Thoughtless series by S.C. Stephens. And if you follow me on Twitter, you'll notice that every now and then I tweet quotes from Thoughtless, Effortless and Reckless as well. 

Just a few weeks ago, I also bought Collision Course on Amazon because I've been hearing great things about it and a lot of my friends who also love the THOUGHTLESS series told me that I should also read this one. And I'll update you guys about it when I start reading it. I'm sure it'll be another strikingly beautiful book by S.C.!

And today, we are really very honored to share with you guys our interview with the brilliant author behind the series that captivated all of us.. Please welcome, Miss S.C. Stephens! 
  • Can you say that you and Kiera have some similarities? And if you were Kiera, would you also choose Kellan in the end just like what happened in Thoughtless? Why or why not?
Yes, I would say Kiera and I have some similarities. In some ways we’re very different, but we have a lot of the same quirks and insecurities. Hmmm, I’m not sure if I would choose Kellan or not. It’s easy to say yes when it’s a fictional situation, but in real life…I’d be even more leery of Kellan than she was.
  • What is your favorite line in the series? Just one line from one person. (Can be from any of the characters.)
Oh gosh, there are way too many favorites to pick just one! I can’t decide. Hmmm, here are some of my favorites from each character:

Kellan: “I thought I had everything I needed, but only because I didn’t let myself want anything. And then I saw you, and you burned a hole straight through me. I have never wanted anything more in my life. And I have never been more terrified in all my life. In all my life.”

Kiera: “Because I love you more than any one person should be allowed to love someone.”

Griffin: “You can see her now. She’s absolutely beautiful…perfect, just like her mom.”

Anna: “All I have is nice hair and a great rack. What the hell do I have to offer a kid?”

Evan: “I don’t think he ever really understood why we did that, why we moved here with him. I don’t think he grasped that we believed in him and loved him, like family. I still don’t think he grasps that.”

Matt: “Dude, he's Australian...not a pirate.”

Denny: “Do you see now, how that doesn't work for me? I don't want to be there, simply because the idea of me being gone is too...scary. I want to be someone's everything. I want fire and passion, and love that's returned, equally. I want to be someone's heart... Even if it means breaking my own.”

  • Were there scenes in the books you found hard to write because of the intensity of the emotions? And have you ever cried while writing several scenes? If yes, can you please tell us which one of them?
Yes, there were several scenes that made me tear up: the end of Thoughtless, Anna’s situation in Effortless, several scenes in Reckless that I won’t mention for spoilers sake. The hard scenes are the easiest for me to write though. They’re my absolute favorite.

  • If you could be a character in one of your series or novels, who would you be and why?
That’s a tossup between Anna and Kellan. I just love how confident they are.
  • What would you like to say to all your fans out there from around the world who continue to support you?
From the bottom of my heart, thank you! I wouldn’t be here without you!


S.C. Stephens is an independent author who enjoys spending every free moment she has creating stories that are packed with emotion and heavy on romance.
Her first attempt at a full-length novel was Thoughtless. She wrote the angst-filled love triangle in early 2009 and published it that summer on FictionPress. Amazed and surprised by the response, more stories were quick to follow. 
Conversion, the first novel in a three story vampire series, was released in the fall. Collision Course, a tragic, yet hopeful tale of love and loss was released in early 2010. The second Conversion novel came out next, along with It’s All Relative, a different take on a one night stand story. 
In addition to writing, Stephens enjoys reading other people’s fabulous novels, loading up her iPod with writer’s block reducing music, heading out to the movie theaters, and spending quality time with her children.
