Interviewing Author Randall Allen Dunn

Interviewing Author Randall Allen Dunn Q1. Tell me about yourself? A. I write action thrillers that read like blockbuster movies, under my given name, Randall Allen Dunn. I'm writing fantasy and paranormal thrillers under my pen name, D.A. Randall, which includes the Red Rider Saga, about a 16-year old scarface Red Riding Hood fighting a sinister cult of werewolves. I grew up on movies and comic books and never could find enough action in the action thrillers I read. So now I write the kind of stories that I would want to read, full of action and humor and memorable characters you can root for. I'm married and have 2 adopted kids, and I've lived my whole life in Illinois. And whenever we can afford it, our goal is to take another trip to Disneyworld. Q. 2.What is your favorite books to read? A. I love action thrillers, whether it's fantasy, paranormal, science fiction, or suspense. I love Ian Fleming's original James Bond novels, for the suspense and larger-than-lif

Interviewing Author Julie Gilbert

Interviewing Author Julie Gilbert  Q1. Tell me about yourself? A.  My personal tag is Writer. Teacher. Believer.  That about sums me up. I write in several genres, including sci-fi, fantasy, and mystery. Every one of my books is kid-safe in terms of language and adult content, but a few are a bit more intense than others. Beyond Broken Pencils is probably something students should read, but it’s about a school shooting.   I’m also a high school chemistry teacher, so some of the writer-ly stuff is taking a backseat as I get myself used to hybrid teaching.   I’m also a Christian. That flavors my writing and teaching no matter what I’m doing. Q2.What are your favorite books to read? A. I’m a fan of Brandon Sanderson, but I don’t love all his series. Mistborn was awesome. Couldn’t get into Stormlight Archives. The Cry of the Icemark by Stuart Hill is one of my favorite books. Q3. When did you decide you were going to write a book? A. As I was finishing high school, I had some time on my ha

Interviewing Author Heather E. Robyn  Q1. Tell me about yourself? A. Hi everyone! My name is Heather E. Robyn and I write Children’s and Young Adult books. I am a San Diego transplant living in San Jose, California, and I am a mom to two teenagers, Maddy and Deegan. They keep me busy but when we have extra time you’ll usually find us traveling or finding cool stuff to do around our area. We also live with my boyfriend Matt and Husky, Echo.  Q2.What are your favorite books to read? A. Gosh, I don’t really have a favorite genre. I love a good mystery, contemporary, or fantasy book. My favorite author is Erin Morgenstern and The Night Circus is my favorite book.  Q3. When did you decide you were going to write a book? A. In 2000, I jotted down a story about a girl’s struggle with test anxiety. At the time, it was only a draft and it sat in a drawer for nine years.  Jump forward five years (2015), I wanted to write a book about the struggles of grief, so I wrote “Group”. I knew then that w

Interviewing Author Janel Sarlls  Q1. Tell me about yourself?    A. I am an award-winning visual fine artist who accidentally wrote a children's book. Once I started, I couldn't stop writing.     Q2.What are your favorite books to read?  A.  I love true crime by Ann Rule or the true classics like John Steinbeck. Q3. When did you decide you were going to write a book?   A. I made a bucket list, if you will, of things I wanted to do, and writing a book was in the top 5.  And one night I accidentally wrote a book.  I'm more of a storyteller and if I can successfully tell a story, I can turn it into a book. Q4. How did you come up with the name of your book?   A. The names are the hardest parts of writing the books for me.  A name will usually come to us in the night. Q5.  What are you working on for 2021?   A. I want to find a publisher for a few of my better stories/books.  I have 3 that I am emotionally invested in and have fallen in love with the characters.  We have been s
