1) If you had to describe yourself in just one word, what would it be and why?
A: Tenacious. I will grab hold of a project and shake it in my teeth until it behaves. Or maybe that's rabid…
2) Can you tell me a little bit about your book and what inspired it?
A: My Enchanted Life is about possibilities and acceptance, inspired by the magic that surrounds us each day. The heroine, Emma, has a life-changing experience and must learn to cope, survive, and thrive within her new boundaries. I think it parallels our own lives. None of us is sure of what tomorrow may bring – it's how we react to it that makes a difference.
3) What do you hope that readers take away with them after reading your book?
A: To make the most out of your life, to accept what you cannot change, to be open to new experiences and new people.
4) I find it interesting to know what authors find most productive… Do you use a pen and paper or laptop? Quiet room at home or bustling café? Basically, what gets your creative juices flowing?
A: I write my first draft with pencil and paper, sitting in my quiet backyard. The voices in my head are loud enough without adding more noise to their chatter.
5) What is one wish that you hope will come true?
A: Wow. I really don't know. I suppose it would be to live permanently on a cruise ship!
6) If you weren't a writer, what would be your ideal job?
A: Anything artistic. I used to work with metals and create jewelry. I also painted but I'm very critical of my work. Is being a hermit considered a job?
7) If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 things would you want with you?
A: My husband, a computer, and a magical source of electricity.
8) Is there a song you could list as the theme song for your book or any of your characters?
A: Not really. I don't listen to music much anymore. Sorry!
9) What is your favorite Quote?
A: I have two actually. "Those who don't believe in magic will never find it." by Roald Dahl and "You can't wait for inspiration. You have to go after it with a club." by Jack LondonThank you so much, Lisseth, for having me on your blog today!
