Mary, how long have you been writing?

10402394_10202007492925029_8447286139300621626_n

I have been writing for almost 3 years. My first book was published in May of 2012. Since then I have published twenty-five books. Of that twenty-five books, two are young adult and eight are children’s books.

Very nice. Tell us where you were born and where do you live now.

I was born in St. Francisville, LA, raised in Clinton,LA and currently reside in Morgan City, LA.

How do you know the idea is good enough to write a book about it?

Once I take the outline for my book and begin writing, I truly have no idea which direction the book will go. I let the words flow onto the paper, and once I am about about halfway done, the genre comes to me.

Wow!  Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?

When I did decide to finally start writing, I remembered how (more…)

I wanted to wirte a book about my father’s experiences in prison camp during WW2, since I had his journals. Around the same time I attended a writing class. From then on I was hooked!

awesome. What makes you passionate about writing?

I’m not sure I can answer that. I guess it’s a way of expressing and researching issues and parts of life that I’m interested in. I certainly never expected to be obsessed (more…)

Blog tour for The Hitler Dilemma by Carolyn Twede Frank

Sunday, May 25th, 2014
Carolyn, when did you first know you wanted to be an author?
I always like to write. In college I minored in journalism my freshman year, but I had a professor who slashed my writing up one side and down the other to the point that I thought I must be in the wrong field. He ended up giving me an A for the course, but it was too late; his method of “toughening me up for the real world” caused me to doubt in my abilities. I gave up on writing, even forgot that I like to do it, until I read a particular book as part of a neighborhood book club. It was entitled The Mermaid Chair. The writing was fine, but the story line left me horribly unfulfilled and uncomfortable. I said to my group, “Even I could write a better book than this.” The moment I said it I knew it was something I wanted to do.

The Deliverers 2: Order of the Crystal Lion by Gregory S. Slomba

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

The Deliverers 2: Order of the Crystal Lion by Gregory S. Slomba is a great read for those who love high fantasy full of battles and adventures. I really enjoyed the tale and the telling. It is a clean, wholesome tale of fantasy and travel. The author expose a refreshing idea on good versus evil, with an unexpected ending.

Eric lost his father more than a year ago and his mother is worried that he needs a male figure in his life. The problem is that asking Uncle Rocco to include him in his male activities, which include his kid’s hockey team, is not the answer. He is miserable and doesn’t know what to do to get his mother off his back.

That is until he is sent with his friends Kate, Hallo, and the owl Stig, by the Gatekeeper, to stop a war in a different world. There they are imprisoned, attacked and they have to defend themselves. This causes a lot of mixed feeling for Eric when he kills a soldier. They join the revolution between Lion-men and the pure blood humans. They choose the side of the rebels and soon it becomes clear to them that they may be wrong. But then, how are they to bring peace between the two sides if everyone has their own agenda? This may be the toughest assignment yet.

You will enjoy the characters and the things that make them so different from each other. This book will become the favorite of many preteens and young adults. Also it will be enjoy by adults.

How special. What is the most difficult thing about being an author?

Balancing it with being a full-time mom. It can be frustrating when all you want to do is write but can’t get a moment of quiet.

Been there done that. Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer?

My husband. He works full time and comes home to be a full time dad so I can write, and he takes over parenting on the weekends for the same reason. He’s pretty amazing.

That is awesome. Who or What inspired you to write this book?

It was NaNoWriMo (more…)

  • Keith, what makes you passionate about writing?

    I love telling stories about places and things that could never exist. Maybe, it’s an outlet for the powerless we all feel. Writing changes that. You’re creating something uniquely your own, a part of yourself the helps you cope with whatever’s going on around you. There’s also an element of showmanship to it. I love that. In the back of your head, you know you have an audience to please.

    Amen to that. Do you have a writing routine?

    Not really. My schedule’s so hectic, I have to write when I can find some quiet time. Usually, that’s during one of my kids practices–hockey, piano, etc–whenever it’s NOT a drop off. Other than that, the closest I come is finding (more…)

Indigo Traveler a Mythical book by Merri Halma an interview

Monday, May 5th, 2014

Merri  what is the name of your new book?

The name of my book is Indigo Traveler

Interesting. What genre does your book fall under?

It is a fantasy. I prefer to call it a Spiritual Fantasy because my characters are seeking to find the spirit within themselves as well as the spiritual outside of them. In turn, they are encouraged to see the spirit within others. It doesn’t prescribe to any one faith, but an universal spiritual perspective which I hope others will be able to relate to.

What is the most difficult thing about being an author?

Finding time to write. Being an author is much different than being a writer. When I was just a writer, that was all I did, now that I have taken on the cap as Author, I find it harder to simply find time to write. There are so many other things to be doing to get your name known. Balance is the key, sometimes it becomes difficult to keep things balanced.

I agree with you 100%. Who has made the greatest difference for you as a writer? (more…)
