I’m starting to practice answers to interview questions as my book publication gets closer (charges at me like a runaway Rhino.) I thought my readers might be interested to see some answers from me.
Question 1- What’s your next project?
Grey Dawn of Dharaven: Katz Island is Book 1 of a proposed series. I have written books two, three and four. At the present time I am writing Book 5 in the series.
I am also working on an anthology short story piece. I have a romance noel idea I have kicked around for years and a horror novel that has been written to page 36. I have over 350 poems written. They have been typed up and will be easier to access to begin the process of rewriting and choosing poems for a chapbook or pamphlet of poetry.
Questions 2: What are the best choices that have made me into the writer I am today?
First off I realized I had no idea how to write a complete book early on when I began to write. I read Pereira’s DIY/MFA book to learn what is included in a good book. I learned about online resources and books to help me in my writing process. To realize I did not know about something I truly wanted to do, then researching and learning about it made me work hard to accomplish becoming an author.
Question 3 What is my favorite love story?
The relationship that develops between Richard and Kahlan, in the Sword of Truth series written by Terry Goodkind, touched me. I love the way they can support one another as they go through hell and highwater to save the kingdom.
Question 4 List five adjectives to describe yourself.
Stubborn, lovable, smart, creative, and hopeful
Question 5 If you were to create a slogan for your life, what would it be?
If you take it one second, one minute, and one increment of time at a time you can get through anything.
This year’s sentence: I wish love, hope, and peace fill your life with joy.
