Wait, what? It’s meet the character day and there are plenty more ppl I could interview. What do you mean I have to interview myself?
Is it true that being a published author is makes you rich? Pfffft. Nope. I don’t make a fortune. I don’t even make enough to pay the bills, fortunately hubby does. Just. The only way to make vast amounts of money is to write a best seller and turn it into a movie deal. Which isn’t going to happen with what I write unfortunately. Having said that, if anyone wants to turn one of mine into a film…
Were you an avid reader as a child? What did you read? I read non-stop. I loved Enid Blyton, Willard Price, Ursula K Le Guin, CS Lewis and others. Now I read Tom Clancy, Clive Cussler… and anything else I can get my hands on.
How does your faith affect your writing? I won’t write on a Sunday. I won’t write sex. Even though I’d make a fortune easily if I did.
What would you be doing if you weren’t writing? I’d probably be doing housework… oops did I say that out loud?
Do you have a favourite book out of all you’ve written? Hmmm, well we’re not meant to have favourites. But yeah, I do. Of course the diplomatic answer would be the one I’m writing at the time.
What was the hardest book you’ve ever written? Without a doubt Saturday’s Child was the hardest, because most of the content was based in reality. All the demonic bits actually happened, to me or someone I know. But mainly to me when we were living in the flat. (Which we discovered much later was built on the site on the tree on gallows common where the criminals were hung. Which actually makes a lot of sense looking back on some of the stuff that happened. We ended up having the place exorcised. Long story. Maybe another time.)
What poem did you base the books on?
Now I lay me down to sleep.
I pray the Lord my soul to keep.
If I should die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.
If I should live for other days,
I pray the Lord to guide my ways.
~ Traditional Child’s Prayer
Where’s your photo for this blog entry? On the author page… maybe. Oh, you want one of me on here…. ummm… Okay…
Okay. That’s enough of me. How about some more quotes from the book.
- “You know, God never gives us more than we can handle.” Isabel York
“That’s not true. Nowhere in the Bible does it say that, despite the fact it’s quoted verbatim as if it is scripture. He gives us no more than He can handle.” Zander Ellery
- “I have a feeling he’s making a statement with these ten, and his final act is still to come.” Isabel York
- “Confession is good for the soul. I’ll redeem it before I take it.” The Slayer.
