So today I have a great post for you all. The author of Love & The Goddess is here to share an author interview with you. I reviewed this wonderful book in September of this year. To see my review CLICK HERE.
Where did the idea for your new book come from?
My time working as a fashion stylist and p.r. consultant.
Are any of the characters inspired by someone in real life?
All my characters are composites of several people I’ve met. The more exaggerated traits in an individual make for interesting characteristics.
Do you listen to music while you write, or do you prefer quiet?
Yes I sometimes listen to music. It depends on the mood and can vary from Annie Lennox to Loreena McKennit or something classical. And sometimes I prefer quiet.
If you could jump in to any book and live there, which book would you choose?
I like the idea of time travel and going between alternate universes so I’d choose The Time traveler’s Wife or Philip Pullman’s His Dark Materials.
What was last book you bought?
The Perfume collector by Kathleen Tessaro
Why did you choose to write about Goddesses?
I was obsessed by the Greek myth of the triple goddess and they say obsession is a good thing for a writer as it inspires passion. Also I love Carl Jung’s work on identification with archetypes. The goddesses in the triple myth are powerful archetypes, present in all women. It was fun to play with an intellectual concept and write an easy to read, humorous story around it.
