The Write Side of Life

June 6, 2007 | Interviews

ST: Good morning, everyone. Last night Mandy and Elizabeth emailed me asking to see the Adeno cover. Never one to fail a friend or enjoy eye candy, I’ll post it now.


ST: Gabrina, please tell us what made you decide to be a writer?
GG: I don’t think you decide to be a writer, which might be cliché of me to say. It’s something I can’t stop doing, so in a way you could call me addicted to it. I spend hours a day writing and improving stories.

ST: How long do you write each day?
GG: This is sad…probably about ten hours. I seriously put all day into it and I don’t have a set schedule, so sometimes I’m starting at 7 in the morning, taking a few breaks, and still writing at midnight.

ST: Do you find writing to be fulfilling? And in what way?
GG: I don’t think I’d be happy not writing. All of my life I’ve been creating stories—fairly bad stories, mind you. It’s been a learning process all the way. People who don’t write probably don’t realize how much time and effort goes into creating a story that will take them an hour to finish.

ST: What’s a normal day like for you?
GG: Crazy! Along with writing I’m also a mom and I foster homeless dogs. There is always someone either crying, spilling something, chewing on stuff, or basically creating mass mayhem. Once I clean up after myself, I start writing.

ST: With your busy life how do you find time to write?
GG: Don’t tell anyone, but I’m secretly a cyborg.

ST: Where do you get the ideas for your novels?
GG: My sick, sick, twisted mind. I really love to be in a fantasy world where I don’t have to think about stuff like child molesters, kidnappers, killers, etc. I prefer the fun and entertainment of magic and manipulating a different world. Freud would say I like to be in charge!

ST: You’re too funny! Thanks for coming out again today and I’m looking forward to tomorrow. See you bright and early?
GG: I’ll be here and ready to go under the bright light again. lol.

ST: See you all in the morning. If you have any questions, feel free to post them. Gabrina is happy to answer. Until Thursday…

Happy Writing!
