Interviewing children's Author Lynne North

This is Children's author Lynne North I had the opportunity to interview her on my blog.

Q.1 When did you decide you were going to write a book?

I began writing my first book when I was about 16. It was a children’s fantasy tale, which is the genre I still mainly write in! I never embarked on the long process of trying to get this one published. Maybe I should find it again, rewrite it, and give it a go!

Q.2 How did you come up with the name of your books?

Somehow the title becomes obvious as I am writing. The story is often partly written before the title announces itself to me. It just suddenly feels right, and more times than not, that is the title that remains.

Q. 3 What are you working on now for  2018?

I have just completed a second Role-play game book titled Pirates Peril. This is one of the books that are also a game, sending the reader from one section to another as they make decisions of their next move. They are hard but fun to write! My next idea is to produce a series of 12 zodiac picture books for young kids, one for each sign of the zodiac. Astrology has always been one of my strong interests, so I don’t know why I haven’t thought of doing this before!

Q 4. How long have you been writing?

As I mentioned earlier, I have been seriously writing in my free time since about the age of 16. It is something I seem to have always wanted to do. My imagination is vivid, and writing is my outlet.

Q 5. What advice would you give other authors?

Becoming a published author is a long haul, and your success or otherwise will depend on how much you want this. Obviously, the first steps are your ideas and writing your book, then getting it in a worthy state to send to potential publishers. These days it can be easier because a lot of people decide to self-publish. That is OK too if that is the path you want to take. Either way, the process is a long one, especially if you are keen to be traditionally published. If you are determined enough and willing to keep at it, you will achieve it in the end. Once you get there, however, it is the greatest feeling ever!

Q 6. Where can people find you online?

Many places. Book promo is paramount! Here are just some of them.


Q7 Do you plan on writing more books in the future

Always, and forever! I can’t imagine a life in which I am not writing books.

Q 8 How many books have you written

I have 6 books published and available online so far. More to follow soon!

Q 9 Did you go to college to be a writer

No, my degree is in psychology! I did, however, take diplomas with ‘The Writing School Ltd’ and ‘The Academy of Children’s Writers’

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.

A.  A lot of brainstorming and researching to make sure the title isn’t a…
