What is the
hardest part of writing your books?
A few facts about myself: I became almost totally deaf at the age of 13
from measles. I woke one morning and realized I had lost my hearing. As a
result, I am also fluent in American Sign Language. One of the drawbacks is I
cannot listen to audible books. It is difficult to write conversations when you
have not hard how people talk in so many years.
What is the hardest part of writing
The hardest part about writing So Long
Earth is that I use real-life characters and a lot of real science in a sci-fi
book. Personalities such as Donald Trump and Barrack Obama polarize the
country. However, the book is fiction,
and the main characters are fictional.
if you want to write books you have to be willing to accept criticism in order
to become a better writer.
What books are you reading now?
I am reading science fiction books as
well as murder mystery books. I like to read James Patterson books since they
are easy to follow.
How did you start your writing career?
I started writing after I retired from
working as a teacher for 30 years. I was too busy as a teacher to write daily.
I have always been interested in the
environment. It was a no-brainer for me
to write this book since the environment and politics are in the news almost
every day. I first became interested in
the topic as a chemistry major in college and learned all about the effects of
chemicals on the ozone layer.
I am currently working on a new book
about an alien who forces a photographer to save 50 people near death and
select 50 people to die within one year.
I am hoping to make it into a trilogy.
The photographer must follow specific rules or lose his life.
