The Write Side of Lizzie T. Leaf
April 17, 2007 | Interviews
ST: Good morning, everyone. I thought you might like to see Lizzie’s cover for NIGHT NURSE from Aspen Press. Looks good.
ST: Before we begin, Lizzie, let’s tell everyone where they can find out more about your books and ordering them. Just click on to Lizzie’s website for all the info.
ST: Lizzie, what made you decide to be a writer?
LTL: Writing is a dream I’ve carried in my heart and head since I discovered I could put stories on paper.
ST: How long have you been writing?
LTL: In my head, most of life. At various times, I’ve worked on short stories or started books that never saw the light of day. Seriously, about four years ago I became part of a critique group and with their encouragement and my husbands, things began to happen for me.
ST: Do you find writing to be fulfilling?
LTL: Yes, most days.
ST: And in what way?
LTL: It keeps me semi-sane. I love getting the constant barrage of ideas out in the open and get very excited when I hear from someone who has read on of my books and liked it.
ST: What’s your favorite part of writing?
LTL: Creating the characters and their lives. Developing the worlds that I can escape into.
ST: What do you absolutely hate about being an author?
LTL: The fact that I now have commitments, instead of just writing for my own pleasure. There are times I’d rather be reading someone else or napping.
ST: Where do you get the story lines for your novels?
LTL: Everywhere. Sometimes it has been from snatches of overheard conversation when I’m out and about. Watching television, stories someone tells me, or memories from my past.
ST: Our time is up. Thanks again, Lizzie and we’ll see you in the morning.
LTL: My pleasure!
ST: Remember to post any questions for Lizzie. She’ll check back throughout the day and answer. Until tomorrow…
