- Where did you get the idea for the novel?
I really don’t know. Ideas usually just pop up in my head, sometimes for no reason. Usually it is just an idea for a scene, or the voice of a character telling a part of a story.
- Your title. Who came up with it? Did you ever change your title?
I came up with the title. I did change titles from books that I wrote, but not from “Creatures of Fire”.
- Which came first, the title or the novel?
The novel came first. With me it is usually that way: First there is an idea, then –when I am lucky- the result is a novel. And then I start thinking about a title.
- Since becoming a writer, what’s the most exciting thing to ever happen to you?
The most exciting thing was my first publishing contract. After having tried for almost twenty years to get a publishing deal it was one of the happiest days of my life.
- What book are you currently reading or what was the last book you read?
I am currently reading “Iced” from Karen Moning.
- What was your first book that you ever wrote (very first one you wrote, not published)?
The first book I ever wrote was “Yuza” a story about an indian woman. The book was never published, which is a good thing :). I still like the story, so there might come the day when I sit down, rewrite it and publish it.
- What is your writing process?
Pretty chaotic. I usually don’t have more than a few ideas for one or two scenes. I take it from there and am often curious myself what the final outcome will be and what will happen in between.
- Who are your favorite authors of all time?
Agatha Christie, Joanne K. Rowling, Dan Brown, Karen Moning, Sophie Kinsella.
- At a book signing, do you just sign your name or do you write a note? How do you come up with stuff to say?
All of my books are published as ebooks, so I have never been at a book signing.
- What is something people would be surprised to know about you?
I believe many would be surprised to know that I am a pretty good cook.
- How do you react to a bad review?
It depends. If it gives reasons why the reader didn’t like the book I can learn from it. These are the reviews I appreciate, even if they are bad. If someone just states that the book is rubbish/boring/not worth to be read. Well, there isn’t much I can do about it. It makes me sad, but fortunately not for long.
- How did you celebrate the sale of your first book?
I danced in my kitchen :).
