Author Interview : The Writing District

Earlier this year, I was delighted to win The Writing District’s August competition with my story, Waiting for Angie. (Read about the story’s long road to publication here.)

Now, the very lovely Olive O’Brien (children’s author, publisher and founder of The Writing District) recently asked if I’d like to take part in an author interview for the site. Well, who’s ego could resist that little massage?

So, if you’d like to read about what inspired me to write the story, who some of my favourite authors are, and who was better, Duran Duran or Spandau Ballet, do pop along and read here.

If you’d like to read the story before the interview, here it is.

Thank you Olive, it was a pleasure.

  1. Great interview, Lynn! And I don’t remember hearing about you selling a serial to a weekly magazine, how wonderful! What serial and what magazine? I can’t wait to hear more about your current novel-in-progress, too. Let me know if and when you’re looking for beta readers.

    1. Thank you, Joy! No, quite right, I haven’t shared the serial news on the blog yet – I just need publication dates to come through and I’ll share a post. On chapter seven of the rewrite of the WIP – over 30 chapters in all so I may be a while yet. But if you really do fancy being a beta reader, that would be amazing. Sometime in the spring, I’m guessing ๐Ÿ™‚

      1. Looking forward to hearing more!

        I find that critiquing other people’s stories feels so much easier than revising my own (critiquing my own, yes, but then solving those problems? ugh). And what an excellent excuse not to be writing that day. ๐Ÿ˜‰
