Looks a little different doesn’t it – I have an update post coming on updating my little book blog and it’s not PERFECT yet but I’m getting there. It’s a Saturday and I’m currently cosy in bed. I was supposed to go the gym but I didn’t quite make it. Instead I’m (eventually) going to get up and make my way to eat pancakes and explore the Tate Modern, but for now here’s an author interview, because I’m that nice.
If you were to describe your book in three sentences what would you say? (They can be long sentences!)
In three sentences: A woman who made sacrifices for her family, refuses to believe that she’ll ever be the recipient of the love she has seen her friends experience. Her childhood crush has to fight through her disbelief to convince her that the life she always wanted is possible.
What was the most important thing you learnt during writing this book? How did you feel when the book was completed?
When the book was finished this book I was sad. I fell in love with this group of characters. I learned through Genevieve how to recognize the various ways people help me with the day to day struggles we have in life.
Is there anything in the book you wish you had changed now that it’s out there in the world – (I love this question!)
I wish I brought Aunt Tee from the first and third books into the story. She is the voice of wisdom for the family. But then again that may have shortened the story .
Could you give us an insight into your writing process?
When I write a book I usually dream the beginning and the end. I write an outline for the middle, but the characters always have different ideas–which makes the writing fun.
Who’s your favourite character and why?
My favorite character in this book is Genevieve. I admire her strength and what she is willing to do for her family.
Is there a message in your novel that you wanted your readers to grasp?
The message I want my readers to remember is there is more to love encompasses all the virtues.
