About Liz Gavin:
When Liz Gavin was in Second Grade – just a couple of years ago, really – her teacher told her mother the little girl should start a diary because she needed an outlet for her active and vivid imagination. She was a talkative child who would disrupt the class by engaging her colleagues in endless conversations. She loved telling them the stories her grandfather used to tell her.
Apparently, the teacher wasn’t a big fan of those stories, and Liz’s mother bought her a diary. She happily wrote on it for a couple of months. Unable to see the appeal of writing for her own enjoyment only, she gave up on it. She missed the audience her friends provided her in class. She went back to disturbing her dear teacher’s class.
Since then, she has become a hungry reader. She will read anything and everything she can get her hands on – from the classics to erotica. That’s how she has become a writer of erotica and romance, as well.
As a young adult, she participated in a student exchange program and lived in New Orleans for six months. She fell in love with the city and its wonderful inhabitants. NOLA will always hold a special spot in Liz Gavin’s heart. Nowadays, living in Brazil, Liz’s creativity has improved many times because it’s such a vibrant, gorgeous and sexy country.
Welcome to her world of hot Alpha males and naughty, independent women. Add a touch of the paranormal in the presence of some wicked souls and you’ll get the picture.
What inspires you to write?
I love the classic romantic stories – Wuthering Heights, Gone with the Wind and Romeo and Juliet have always held a special place in my heart.
Tell us about your writing process.
When I start writing, I know where I want to get with my story but the process is usually guided by the characters themselves. Many a time I’ve started writing a scene with one idea in mind and the thing ended up completed different from my original plan. It’s like the characters told me their stories.
Honestly, it’s fascinating!!
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
They talk to me all the time even when I’m not writing. Do I need to increase the number of my weekly therapy sessions? LoL
What advice would you give other writers?
It’s nothing new but I think it must be repeated as often as possible – if you want to be a writer, sit down and write, as frequently as you can. It will get easier and better.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I met a fellow author online and she was finalizing a ‘how to self-publish’ guide, which she asked me to proofread for her. I did it and was fascinated by the idea. I’ve always been an avid reader but had never imagined I could be an indie author. It’s been an amazing experience so far!
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think we need new plataforms and new outlets for indie books. It’s dangerous to count solely on one or two distributors because we give them too much power over our work and, consequently, our income.
