I wish I could write down something exciting in my author bio. Unfortunately, I live a rather mundane life in Reykjavik, Iceland. And spend far too much time cleaning.
Maybe I find it difficult to write an author bio because I don’t really see myself as an author. Stories haunt me, I feel a need to write them down, sometimes I can, sometimes I can’t.
Are they any good? I don’t know. That’s for you to decide.
What inspires you to write?
Often my ideas come from observations or conversations. From the company of others, I suppose.
Then they usually morph into something else entirely once I start to write them down.
Tell us about your writing process.
I suppose I am a mixture. I’ll often have a general outline in my head. Then as I write that outline sometimes changes and the story takes off in a different direction.
Charactes are usually born as I write, though.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
No, I haven’t spoken to them. Not yet. Maybe I should start doing that. Then again, I read I’m supposed to be speaking to that baby I’m carrying, and I constantly fail to do that.
But I think about them. A lot. Sometimes more than I should, probably.
What advice would you give other writers?
Oh. I see. Well. As I noted above, I find it very difficult to see myself as an author. So, I find it even more difficult to give advice, seeing as I reckon I should be the one listening to advice rather than giving it 🙂
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I’m shy. Not in person. But I am shy about sharing my works, and by doing it myself, I can keep a bit of a distance. Thing is, because I’m so shy about sharing it, I’m rubbish at advertising it and letting people know it exists, so it is sort of invisible.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Well. Things seem to be in a bit of a balance today. Ebooks and printed books seem to be able to co-exist nicely. And if I think about my own reading habits, then I both read ebooks and printed books.
Nothing quite compares to the feeling of holding an actual book, though.
However. I know for may the ease and compactibility of ebooks gives them the opportunity to read wherever and whenever they like.
I guess it all boils down to lifestyle. Whatever book formats that can fit into people’s lifestyle will thrive.
What genres do you write?: Science Fiction and Fantasy, Historical and Mythological Fiction, Young Adult, Fairy Tales
