Interview with autobiographer Diane Fisher
Today we get to find out a little bit about Diane Fisher and her autobiography Once Upon a Time....Never Comes Again
Welcome, Diane. Please tell us about your current release, Once Upon a Time...Never Comes Again: My True Personal Story about Adult Sibling Rivalry.
This is my own true personal story of adult sibling rivalry and how I stood up to all three of my siblings after they disowned me.
What inspired you to write this book?
The reason I wrote this book was because I felt I had a story to tell; but most of all, it helped me work my way out of my depression after my three siblings disowned me.
What exciting story are you working on next?
I'm working on a true story about my father - something I never had closure on.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
Ever since I could remember, I always wrote poems about family situations.
Do you write full-time? If so, what's your work day like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find time to write?
I do not write full time. I am a Legal Assistant for a Managing Partner in a powerful law firm in NYC. Whenever a thought comes to me, I jot it down, whether it be on the bus on the way to work, while driving my car, or something just pops into my head in the middle of the night.
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I think my most interesting writing quirk is always wanting to plug in clip art pictures into my story.
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I would say I always wanted to be a court reporter and to this day, I am so sorry I never pursued it.
Anything additional you want to share with the readers?
This is the first book I have ever published - something I really never thought would happen in my life. However, when I 'Google' myself or go on Amazon or Barnes & Noble and find my name with the name of my book, it hits me that I, Diane Fisher, AM AN AUTHOR! That is my tremendous accomplishment. My two little grandchildren, 5 and 6, run around telling everyone "my grandma is an author" - it does not get better than that!
