I wanted to do something new for 2019, and what better than to start the new year off with a brand new feature. This one could be interesting as Authors were sent interview questions and had to answer them. The author's name has been omitted, and you'll have until the 26th to guess the author. The weekly wrap up on the 27th will reveal who our mystery author is. Each member gets three guesses, after that, guesses won't count. Happy guessing!
What is one thing that most GA members might not know about you?
I have never been hang gliding.
What prompted you to write your first story?
My grade 5 teacher. I’d always made up stories but she pushed me to write one.
What genre of books do you enjoy reading and have you written for that genre?
Many types are including comedy, drama, historical, horror, and science fiction. I’ve written a number of them.
Is there a genre that you haven’t written for that you would consider trying later on?
Perhaps one day historical or horror. Both would be a challenge.
What do like most about publishing on GA?
That would have to be the interaction with readers.
Do you have any unique writing habits or rituals to help you get into a writing mood?
No, nothing in particular. I do like to have a cup of coffee, however.
How has your writing style evolved over time?
Yes, it most definitely has evolved. Practice makes perfect as they say. Most people know I need a lot more practice.
Do you have a significant other?
Yes, I do.
Do you have any pets?
No, I do not have any pets. Do pet rocks count?
Do you post multi-chapter stories as you write? Do you wait until you’ve finished writing the entire story? Or is it something in between?
I prefer to write the entire story. Doing so ensures that you do not write yourself into a corner. So much less embarrassment that way.
What is your favorite television show?
Well, that’s a hard one. After much thought, I would have to say, Fortitude.
What is your favorite movie?
The Legend of Hell House
Do you write poetry? Prose? Or both?
I enjoy writing both. Each of them brings a different sense of accomplishment and satisfaction.
If you could meet one person, living or dead, who would it be?
I would enjoy meeting John Steinbeck. He is an author I much admire.
What would you say is your greatest accomplishment?
Beyond my writing, I would have to say my marriage. It means a great deal to me.
