Exclusive Interview with
Maryla Mary Storm
When did you start writing?
all my life -since a child
What makes writing your passion?
I have a lot of passions and writing is one of them. My heart and soul sings when I am involved with working with my passions.
How long have you been writing?
As I said in number 1 - all my life!
What was the feeling when you published your first book?
I just published and I've been so busy it hasn't sunk in yet.
What’s the story behind your choice of characters?
They are real-the book characters. Its a teaching memoir.
What annoys you the most in pursuing a writing career?
How do you get over the “writer’s block”?
Mine is writing too much!
We all know the writer’s path is never easy, what makes you keep going? What advice would you give to new authors?
Write from the soul and your writing will be guided.
If you could go back in time and talk to your younger self, what would you say?
Should have written more growing up!
Do you read your book reviews? How do you deal with the bad ones?
The ones received so far are all good.
What is the feeling when you get a good review?
Have you ever incorporated something that happened to you in real life into your novels?
That's the entire book- its a memoir!
Which of your characters you can compare yourself with? Did you base that character on you?
What do you think, the book cover is as important as the story?
Its important as it brings the readers to stop and want to look inside at the story
Do you connect with your readers? Do you mind having a chat with them or you prefer to express yourself through your writing?
I love to connect.
How do you feel when people appreciate your work or recognize you in public?
Who is your favorite author? Why?
What’s the dream? Whom would you like to be as big as?
Would you rewrite any of your books? Why?
If you could switch places with any author – who would that be?
What would you say to the “trolls” on the internet? We all know them – people who like to write awful reviews to books they’ve never read or didn’t like that much, just to annoy the author.
Karma will come along.
What would you say to your readers?
pass it on- read my book and give it to someone who needs inspiration.
Share a bit about yourself – where do you live, are you married, do you have kids?
