About Igo Rab:
Hi there, My name is Igo Rab and I am middle-grade Fantasy writer. Though currently based in Leicestershire, I was born and raised in the West of Ireland. Writing has been a passion of mine since a young age. The ability of imagination to take you to places without limits or restraints is a gift that I am grateful to have. I love to write and my dream would be to inspire others to pick up a pen and give it a try.
What inspires you to write?
It can be anything really. Music is a common inspiration for me. A simple note or lyric can be enough to spark my imagination. However, my current book was inspired by the poem "The Stolen Child" By W.B. Yeats
Tell us about your writing process.
I am a bit of a combination. I write a general outline before I start so I have an idea of what i need to research but generally I accept that the plan will change as I write. As the story unfolds you cannot allow an outline to restrict your imagination. For an outline I am old fashioned. Good old pen and paper is where I outline.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I do listen to the characters but I do not talk to them. I observe my characters without interacting with them.
What advice would you give other writers?
Just write. Even if you know you know the writing is inadequate, do not worry. Just get something down on paper and keep going. What is down can always be improved upon once you get it down.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I decided to self-publish in order to get my work out there. I wanted to see people read it and enjoy it.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
The written word will always have a place in the world. In whatever format it will be written and published there will always be a need for it to be written and for it to be made available to the public.
What genres do you write?: Upper Middle Grade Fantasy
