Today, we are featuring another exciting interview:
What is the hardest part of writing your books?
I think the fact that this type of book has never been done before, so I have to sort out a lot of technical and style aspects. They are really a new type of book. It works like an app and feels like someone is telling you a story. They are also a very quick read, a bit like a snack, something fun you read on the plane or waiting for the train.
What songs are most played on your Ipod?
Let it Go from Frozen and Can't Stop this Feeling by REO Speedwagon. Maybe there's a connection, but I love them in different ways. They are both very happy songs.
Do you have critique partners or beta readers?
Yes, I have one beta reader who is great at giving honest advice at what needs to be tweaked for the story to work better.
What book are you reading now?
I'm currently reading the Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion, which is really funny. I get inspired by reading humorous stories.
How did you start your writing career?
I actually started by babysitting a friend's kid, and telling her the story of Snow White. Only, when I started I thought how much more exciting it would be to make it about talent and not beauty, so Snow White was ugly and smart and the dwarfs had each an expert profession. I then came home one night and wrote a funny adult version to a friend and that's how Funny Fairy Tales got started.
My next release is Hansel and Gretel, which is now out on iBooks Nook and Kindle. I did a facebook survey and everybody wanted it. I love the chocolate house, and all the little twists with Gretel.
The next book which is now in editing is Rapunzel.
Let the tale begin!
