Wounds of Time


Get a behind-the-scenes all-access pass to Wounds of Time by Stevie D Parker!


Told from the perspectives of a husband, his wife, and his lover, Wounds Of Time is a story of lies, betrayal, heartbreak, and jealousy.

It’s a story of love.

It’s a story of life.


What is the sub-genre and trope?  Did your characters lead you to this genre or was that decided before the story began?

Technically it is a romantic tragedy. 

When it was published, the genre didn’t exist, so the closest comparable genre it was put into was romantic suspense. The last page was written first and the story in its entirety was written backwards, from end to beginning. 

With that being said, ultimately the genre was decided before it was written.


Are you more character or plot driven?

Plot, the characters end up developing themselves as the story progresses.


With many main and secondary characters, how do you keep them separated in your mind?  Do you have a story/vision board above your workspace?

No, but I do have a very detailed outline.


I know from previous interviews that characters take on a life of their own.  Were any of the characters in this series determined to take their own direction instead of where you initially wanted them to go?

Samantha. As the story evolved, she took over the chapters.


Are any of the male POVs based on anyone you know?

Vince is about six different men I know, all wrapped into one.


Are any of the female POVs based on anyone you know?

The three main characters in this book, including Vince represent a part of myself.


Was there any one character/scene that was harder to write about than the other?

Without giving away the ending, from the climax on was pretty difficult to get through, especially writing in first person POV, the character can really consume you.


I know that we aren’t supposed to have “favorites” as far as our children, but seriously, who’s your favorite character and why?

Vince. He is casted as the “villain” in the book, however once you get to know him and his backstory, I’ve noticed that readers definitely identify with him the most. 

On a personal level, I like him the most because nothing is black or white to him, or not well thought out. He’s actually a very complex character who truly feels every emotion along the way and he is obviously the main point of conflict. 

Although the story is written in three sides, he is really the main character.


How do you get inside these character’s heads to find their perfect HEA?

**SPOILER ALERT** it’s not a HEA.


What scene in this book sticks out the most for you?  Why?

The Puerto Rico scene. I think this is the “What if” part for Bianca and Vince. This is the glimpse of their HEA.


This question is if you write in MULTIPLE POVs not just the hero and heroine - I love the multiple POVs in a book.  It’s not just the hero and heroine, but we get inside the heads of multiple characters throughout this series.  I feel that it gives the story further depth.  Do you think you will write another book or series following this multiple POV outline?

Both Wounds of Time and My Significant Nobody are written in multiple POV. 

Personally, I prefer it, because I feel you get the entire truth, told by the characters themselves. I am struggling with my current WIP only being in one POV, I go back and forth with myself as to whether or not I should bring in others.


How long did it take you to write this book?

First draft took three weeks. After beta readers and editing, 6 months in total.


How did you come up with the title for your book?

Fun fact, it was actually originally called The Christmas Fairy. Right before publication I was advised to change the name for two reasons. A- there was the fear of it being “season originated” as far as sales, and B- should I ever decide to write a prequel that would be the name. To be clear, a prequel is not intended.


If you met these characters in real life would you get along?

Yes, I think so.


Can you give us a hint as to what we can expect next?  Whether a new book and series or a sequel to an existing series?  Can you share a small tease?

The one I am working on now is expected to release in late 2022. Once again, it will be hard to put into a specific genre, but it would most likely be classified as paranormal/supernatural.

What are you willing to risk for happiness?

This question tortures Vince when his life is turned upside down by a chance encounter. He and his wife Samantha appear to have the perfect marriage. After a series of mistakes led them to New York City decades earlier, Vince has built an empire for them and their two children as a high-profile stockbroker. But inside the walls of their Upper East Side apartment tells a different story.

Restless in a passionless marriage, Vince finds himself infatuated with Bianca, an aspiring Broadway actress. As they fall deeper in love, Samantha grows increasingly suspicious. All three of their lives start to spiral toward a collision course with the past. A path paved with betrayal, confusion, and jealousy.

In Wounds of Time by Stevie D. Parker, we are taken on the sexy, emotional roller coaster ride of three vastly different people tormented by the effects of an affair, forced to face the decisions they have made.
