Interviewing Author Lisa Daiker


Q1. Tell us about yourself. What are your favorite books to read?

A. My name is Lisa Daiker and I’m a German Early Childhood Educator. I lived for one year in America and one year in the Netherlands and now I live in Calgary, Canada for the last 6 years – almost 7 years. I love to read fiction (romance with thriller or action in it) and non-fiction (psychology of human). 

Q2. Where did the inspiration to write come from? 

A.  I decided to write Raising secure, Contented Children Going back to the Basics in November 2017, when I observed that our society is not providing children the things, they need the most- a functioning family. I worked for 10 years as an educator, as an Au-pair, and as a Nanny, and I’m grateful for the experiences I made -otherwise I couldn’t write this book. 

Q3. How did you come up with the titles of your books? 

A.  It was more my editor. We were bouncing ideas back and forth. And by the end, we decided that title ‘Raising Secure, Contented Children Going Back to the Basics’ matches the best. 

Q4. Anything you're currently working in 2019? 

A. 
  For the last two months, I worked with my editor and designer on a workbook (Raising Secure, Contented Children workbook- as a PDF file) with questions parents can exanimate and maybe make their family stronger. 
I also write children’s book manuscripts about different values, right now. Why? Through working closely with children and while collecting all the information for my parenting book, I notice that there a just a few children’s books that explain values. For example: “What does kindness really mean?”, and I think that is one problem why we as a society don’t practice real-valued values. Mostly kindness is viewed as weak and children adopt that thinking through us.  

Q5. How long have you been writing? 

A. 
 As a girl, I wrote in a journal about what happened and the questions that I had. A couple times I started a chapter for a novel, but it never really stuck, because I was afraid that it wouldn’t be good enough. But when I decided to write this book, I didn’t worry about me, I was more worried about the children and in 2018 I started to write and didn’t stop until the book was finished. 

Q6. What advice would you like to give to other authors?

A. Find a wonderful editor and designer who understand what you want to tell your readers and who work hard with you to create that book. 


Q7. Where can we connect with you online?

A. Right now, Facebook (Raising Secure, Contented Children Facebook group). I’m planning to create a website for me, hopefully soon. (Can send you the link later) My book is also available as E-book PDF-file and also Amazon, Kodo. 


Q8. Do you plan on writing any more books in the future? 

A.  Yes, I’m focusing on Children’s books right now, I hope maybe I will be able to publish a novel one day. The future will tell.  😊


Q9.How many books have you written?

A. – For now, just one. But I hope my children’s book will be published this year (2019). 


Q10.Did you go to college to be a writer?

A.  No, I’m trained to be an early childhood educator. But that never stopped me to wish to write.

Q2. When did you decide you were going to write a book?
A. It all started with a thought of creating something with the emails shared between my husband and I - I thought at a minimum it would be fun to pass this down to our children. After allowing others to read the emails and telling our story, so many people would say that I should write a book....so I did :)
_Kisses from Sardinia _has all the makings of a novel, but it’s a true story—a story of chance, romance, and happenstance that every woman, young or old, should read and thus be inspired. Laurie’s tale of adventure will awaken youn…

Q1. Tell us about yourself. What are your favorite books to read?
A. I’m a SAHM and wife. I love to watch horror movies especially if it’s based on a Stephen King book. I am a huge fan of two phenomenal female authors, Kimberla Lawson Roby & Victoria Christopher Murry. They both write African American fiction. Their novels are so inspirational.
Q2. Where did the inspiration to write come from? 
A. Wow, I remember falling in love with writing in school. Being given an assignment that allowed me to create my own story was an incredible feeling. I would spend a lot of times in my room as a kid writing fun comic strips. But the day I made the profound decision to write a book. Was when I was in middle school and a classmate had a notebook with her own fiction story. I read it and thought to myself. Hmmm, I would write one better.

Q3. How did you come up with the name of your books?
A.  A lot of brainstorming and researching to make sure the title isn’t a…
