Interview with first-time author Stacie Williams
Welcome, Stacie, to Reviews and Interviews today. Congratulations on writing and publishing your first children's book. I'm glad to have you here to share a bit about your work.
Please introduce us to you with a brief bio.
I am a stay-at-home mom of 2 kids: a 4-year-old boy named Nicholas and a 2-year-old daughter named Savannah. I'm also a writer and wife.
Please tell us about your current release, The House with 9 Rooms
This story is about a house with nine rooms. When you enter the house, it feels magical. You have different things in every room. It's a strange and wonderful feeling to be in the house. It's almost like a dream that you don't want to wake up from. There is something for everyone in every room, whether you're a man or woman, a boy or a girl. It is a wonderful house to be in!
What inspired you to write this book?
First of all, part of it was in my dream. Another reason is that my kids love books. Lastly, after reading the Twilight saga series, I wanted to write a book and publish it. I wanted people to be able to picture what they are reading and really enjoy it.
What exciting story are you working on next?
I am working in a whole different genre - crime thriller. It's about an animal smuggling ring. Thats all I want to give away about it right now.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I considered myself a writer when I was writing the book and once it got published.
Do you write full time? If so, whats your work day like? If not what do you do other than write and how do you find time to write?
Well, I don't write full time. I'm a stay-at-home mom and I clean the house and take care of my kids. I write when I can and as much as I can. If I feel like writing I do.
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
Well, I don't think I have any, but I do like to research. I guess I dont think I can write unless I have every fact I can get my hands on.
As a child what did you want to be when you grew up?
First, I wanted to be a vet, but then I couldn't put animals down when they were sick or dying. Also, I wanted to be a writer and CSI agent, but I'm glad I am a writer.
Anything else that you'd like to share with the readers?
Well, I want to share to always follow your dreams and heart no matter what. To keep reading and enjoy my book. Thank you.
My book is available amazon.com, bn.com, and booksamillion.com.
Readers can learn more about me through my blog, my Web site, and my family site.
Thanks again for stopping by, Stacie. Best of luck with your adventure into crime fiction!
