Interview with John Holt

aurorawatcherak

Today’s interview is with crime and historical writer John Holt, who has been a guest on the blog before. Welcome back to the blog, John. Tell us something about yourself.


John Holt Author PicI was born in Hertfordshire too long ago now as to make very little, if any, difference. Since 1980 I have lived in Essex, in a small town about 40 miles northeast of London, with my wife Margaret, my daughter Elizabeth, and Missy our cat who adopted us a few years ago. I spent many years as a surveyor working in local government, including many years as a Senior Project Manager with the Greater London Council. Then in 1986 I started my own surveying practice. In 2004, I suffered a heart attack, and I finally retired in 2008. In April 2012 I was diagnosed with a cancer. After several tests this was confirmed in the October of that year, and…

I chose to interview Shyralan of the Golden Unicorn because she is a minor character who is pivotal to the story in Mirklin Wood and indicative of my writing attitude.

Shyralan, please tell my readers what you do for a living?

I’m the madam of the Golden Unicorn Inn … the chief harlot. It’s the largest and most…

Interview with Jaq D Hawkins

Today’s interview is with Jaq D Hawkins. Welcome to the blog, Jaq. Tell us something about yourself.

Jaq Hawkins Author PicI’m an English author, originally traditionally published in a niche market but I’ve gone almost totally indie now, especially for my fiction. It occurred to me recently that my first book, Understanding Chaos Magic, was published twenty years ago. I consider myself a full time writer, though much of my time has been diverted to film in recent years, and I’m also a carer for my long term partner.

At what point did you know you wanted to be a writer?

I started writing my first sutobiography when I was six, on a scrap of notepaper with a pencil. Writing down stories has always been a part of my life. I decided that it should be my career when I was fourteen, during an English Composition class in high school. I was scrawling…

Today’s interview is with Colorado Marshal. I love that name! Welcome to the blog.

Thank you! And thank you for the opportunity to be on your blog!

Some one with that cool of a name must have had an interesting life. Tell us something about yourself. 

Colorado Author PicI am originally from San Luis Obispo County, California (the redneck half ha ha); for the past 6 years I have lived in Western Australia. I have worked in retail and hospitality my entire adult life, and have never done college. The closest I’ve come to higher education was a trade school photography course I took in Perth, Australia so I could get a visa to get back into the country (at the time that was my only way back in). I have two dogs, Jack and Dusty, and a horse named Falcon. I’m a bit of an airplane nerd and a car nut.

Interview with Luana Ehrlich

Today’s interview is with suspense thriller writer Luana Ehrlich. Welcome to the blog, Luana. Let me start with asking you to tell us a little bit about yourself.

Luana Ehrlich web 2I grew up as a preacher’s kid, and, although it may surprise some people, it was actually my dad who gave me my first spy novel when I was eleven years old. After that, I was hooked on the thriller/suspense/mystery genre forever. I’m also a news fanatic, and I follow events around the world on a daily basis, particularly the Middle East.

I married a minister, and we’ve lived in several states in the South and Midwest and have served as missionaries in Costa Rica and Venezuela. For the past two decades, we’ve lived in Norman, Oklahoma, where my husband has been the senior minister at a Baptist church.

For the past several years, I’ve been writing for Baptist Press, a national news…

Interview with Wendy Mae Andrews

Today’s interview is with Wendy May Andrews, historical romance author. Welcome to the blog, Wendy. Tell us something about yourself.

Wendy May AndrewsHello Lela, thanks for having me. I’m from a small town on the East Coast of Canada but I now make my home in Toronto. I live in a fabulous neighbourhood that is close to the downtown core and yet we are surrounded by trees and parks so it is very walkable. My husband and I love to walk everywhere – out for dinner or to grab a coffee, even to pick up a few groceries.

Besides being a writer, I haven’t yet quit the day job, I am a part-time bookkeeper. I love the math involved in my job. Numbers never lie.

My hubby and I do not yet have children and sadly we recently lost our four-legged friend, but that does leave us free to pursue our other love…
