How long have you been writing?
When I was young, I used to keep a diary, but I wouldn’t count that. The truth is, my husband is a writer, and he used me as his primary editor. His activities spurred me on to do my own writing. So, I would have to say only two years when it comes to serious writing.
What was the most challenging part about writing GIRL WITHIN GIRL?
It’s written in the first person, so I have to get into the heads of all three women, which means the writing style, dialogue, and vocabulary have to be unique for each personality. I tried to dedicate individual chapters to only one of them, but some situations required the presence of more than one of Katrina’s alter egos in the same chapter. That was hard.
What do you enjoy the most about being an author?
Since this is my first published work, I don’t know yet. To be honest, I’m a bit afraid I would become too well known. I’m sort of a private person.
Is this book part of a series?
Yes it is. I envision three short books to tell the whole story. I thought that if I wrote all of it together, it would take me a long time and deny flexibility to readers who prefer a taste before they spend the money to read the rest of the story. Besides, it gives me a little time to see where this story is going.
Do you have any works in progress?
Yes, Book 2 of course, called Healing. This one will be a bit darker, and more serious, since I need to do justice to those who have gone through similar experiences. But it will turn out positive with a happy ending!
