Author Interview with Lisa Bilbrey
If you could spend the day on a dessert island with any one you would like to, who would it be?
Oh, I should say my husband, but I’m not. I spend every day with him. On a serious note, I would spend the day with J.K. Rowling. She’s an amazing storyteller, who created this unique world. I would love a chance to get inside her head.
Do you have a special place to write? If so tell us about it.
I write in the living room. The way my living room is set up, I have a small corner in the back that I have declared to be my office. Most of the time, the TV isn’t on, but I’ve learned to adjust to the noise when the kids are watching.
Do your characters talk to you and do you talk back to them?
Oh, my characters not only talk to me, but they yell and scream, too! Especially if I dare ignore them for silly things like sleep. I am a true believer that the characters write the story and it’s my job to just listen.
Who is or was your biggest influence in your life?
My mom. Growing up, things weren’t always easy. I was nearly eight years old before I could read more than a few site words. I have dyslexia and so I often felt like I was too stupid to be able to write. When I first started, my mom kept encouraging me to keep fighting, to never give up. Being able to see her with tears in her eyes when she held my first book in her hands was worth it all.
Is there something that your readers do not know about you that you can share with us today?
I have a twin sister. We aren’t identical, but there are times when I am just having a horrible day and she will text me, or call even. My husband laughs when we start texting each other, because it will go on for two hours. He’ll grumble and say, “it would be easier if you just called.” But it’s how we work.
Lisa Bilbrey is a mom of three and has been married to her high school sweetheart since 1996. Finding a love in the written word, she started writing as a way to express herself. From the first word she wrote, she'd found her heart and soul. Always willing to learn, she's spends much of her time trying to improve as a storyteller. She's been blessed to find Michele Richard and Laura Braley, both of whom she spends hours every day writing with.
