Interviewing Author Kathy Roberts
Q1.Tell me about yourself. What are your favorite books to read?
A. I am a Christian, a wife, and a mother of 1 2019 senior. I am very active in church and help care for my mother who has Alzheimer's. I always have a smile and look for the positive in everything. I used to just like romance novels (clean) but I've found myself drawn to shapeshifters recently. I like inspirational books as well.
Q2. When did you decide you were going to write a book?
A. In 1987 I had an idea for a romance story, so I began writing it. I didn' think it could ever be published, but I loved the story, so I wrote. In 2013 after a friend of mine's daughter published, I got my book out and began typing it up to see if I could publish as well. Thank you Amazon/Createspace. I had not finished the book, but I always knew how it ended, so I wrote the last 4 chapters and while writing that, I got the whole storyline for the sequel.
Q3. How did you come up with the name of your books?
A. The names came with the ideas, nothing to ponder, it was there with the storyline.
Q4.What are you working on for 2019?
A. I am currently not writing as my dad's passing in 2017 was a shock and I've had to devote a lot more of my free time to helping care for my mother. I would like to do a sequel to Kingdoms of the Curse and have given that a little thought. I have a couple ideas, jut not the whole storyline, like I usually have when I start writing. Hopefully, it will come.
Q5. How long have you been writing?
A. since 1987
Q6.What advice would you give other authors?
A. s so much easier now to write and publish your own book, but make it good! have someone really good edit for grammar, spelling, correct usage of words and story continuity. People are turned off very quickly if there are missed or misspelled words. Marketing your self-published book is HARD; but there are many successful self-published authors out there, so don't give up!
Q7 Where can people find you online?
email: email@example.com (put a book title in the subject line so I can pick out of spam mail)
Q8.Do you plan on making more books in the future?
A. I do, I'm awaiting art for the last 2 books in the Adventures With Freddy self-help/teaching series for children. They're already written and would like to do the sequel already mentioned and of course, anything else that creeps into my mind during the few hours it's not already inundated with day to day life issues.
Q9. How many books have you written?
A. I have 5 novels out and 4 of the 6 children's books are published with the last two written, just awaiting artwork.
Q10. Did you go to college to be a writer?
A. No, I did not.
