Author Interview with David-Michael Harding

Hi David, first of all, could you tell us a bit about yourself.
I have been a writer for forty years.  The time itself is important, but the experiences, challenges, high and lows are water for the well from which authors draw their work.  I am a better writer today than I was 25 years ago - not because I am merely older, but because of the experiences I have laughed through and cried over.  As many have said, we are the sum of our experiences and mine have been many and varied. Parent, teacher, semi-pro football player, sailor, etc.  The best part is that I continue to find new experiences daily and put them in my reservoir of writing.  As a result I trust I will be a better writer in 10 years than I am today!

Why I Write…

[Post by Matthew Williams / Image by Beginte]
I can remember with some interest how, as a child, I would spend hours making things out of plasticene, or using mismatched toys from different franchises to construct large armies and sagas. And then, when I was old enough to have a sense of the aesthetic, I began to draw, and draw, and draw… In time, my love of RPG’s and video games made me want to create some of those too. It was never enough to just enjoy them on their own. Somehow, I always needed to create, recreate, or bring the things I liked best together in one place, where they could coexist on my own terms.

Author Interview with Kimberly Menozzi

Hi Kimberly, first of all, could you tell us a bit about yourself.
Well, I'm an American who has lived in Italy since Christmas of 2003, I've been writing stories since I was about six or seven years old and I was first published in 2010 when a small UK press released Ask Me if I'm Happy.

What do you think makes your genre special?
I honestly don't consider myself a genre writer. I think Ask Me if I'm Happy falls into the category of Women's Fiction, though, but I'm not really partial to any particular genre.

Author Interview with Sherry Fulmer Moorer

Hi Sherri, first of all, could you tell us a bit about yourself. 
By day, I work in professional licensing for design professionals. At night, I’m an independent author. I primarily write mysteries but have also written sci-fi and non-fiction. 

What do you think makes your genre special? 
I believe the mystery genre is special because it engages the mind – it makes you think, and the stories tend to stay with you even after you finish reading the book. I believe a good mystery also helps us to see the world around us with new eyes, and broadens our perspective. Nothing is mundane when you’re a mystery fan. You always look for the details in things, to tell you more about what it all means.
