Interview with Keren David

Hello!  I had the opportunity to read Lia's Guide to Winning the Lottery by Keren David.  Check below for my review from yesterday.  As well, I was able to send some questions her way and am excited to share them with you today.  So, here it goes - 

1. What do you find yourself rambling about? 

Oh, difficult question! I spend much too much time on twitter and facebook talking about television programmes, politics and great books I've read.

2. When becoming an author did you have any speed bumps along the way?  If so, how did you overcome them?

 My first book (When I Was Joe) baffled some publishers because it was for male and female readers, it was a thriller and a romance, it was scary and funny...apart from that, the main speed bumps are my own idleness and getting distracted by socialising when I should be writing.

3. As you write, does a part of your personality leak into any of the characters?  Which character is most like you?

I think that bits of my personality leak into all of the characters. Lia's a bit like me as a teenager because I was always been told I was selfish and could never work out why. And Lia's mum is a bit like me, in that I'm sure that if my teenage daughter won the lottery I'd be looking at new houses and buying new clothes..

4. What is your favorite part of the writing process?

Probably redrafting -  the hard work of creating characters and working out the story is done, and with the redraft everything falls into place. Hopefully. 

5. What is next on your plate?

I'm working on two ideas -  a funny book for younger teens and a more serious read for Young Adults. 

Thank you so much to Keren David for the opportunity to read your book and interview you!
