This is Children's Book author Fiona Faith Ross.
She is Also a screenwriter and I am so happy I got to interview Her.
Q 1. when did you decide you were going to write a book?
A. I have two books on the go at any one time. This year I got one highly polished for publication.
Q2. how did you come up with the name of your books?
A. The names are usually related to the main character or a theme I am exploring. FLAT SQUIRREL is about Duggan, a flying squirrel. They're already kinda "flat" when they fly, but the name also hints at the theme, which is when life flattens people, they get up and try again. That's the idea, anyway.
Q3. what are you working on now for 20 18?
A. I'm also a screenwriter. I'm working on an adventure in ancient Egypt and also on FLAT SQUIRREL 2. These are both the novels and screenplay formats.
Q4. how long have you been writing?
A. Ten years full time, and part-time all my life.
Q5. What advice would you give other authors?
A. Write something every day. Form a good writing habit, if you feel like it or not. Don't wait for The Muse, because she's not reliable!

Q7.do you plan on making more books in the future?
A. Yes, I'm always writing. I plan to release a book a year from now on.
Q8. how many books have you written?
A. I've actually written five books but they're not quite ready for publication, but they will be.
Q9. did you go to college to be a writer?
A. I didn't go to full-time college but I take lots of courses, usually online ones. There is a mass of information now online, a lot of it free, for aspiring writers.
