Books And Bites: Congratulations on the publication of your novels! Tell me a little about them – what’s your pitch? N/A
BAB: No two authors seem to take the same route to publication, but almost every author has an interesting story about their journey. Care to share yours? N/A
BAB: How did you get the idea for your novel?
Lauren Hill: It just kind of crept into my mind. I mean I have a thing about vampires, they’re the best monsters to me. Its all down to a lot of daydreaming when i really should be listening to whats going on!
BAB: Do you have another book in the works?
Lauren Hill: No at the moment i don’t. I really want to be though because when I’m not writing i feel as though there’s no thrill and that life is kind of boring. I’m still trying to come up with good ideas that will make a good long novel.
BAB: How did you get the inspiration for characters?
Lauren Hill: I either think of them as i daydream and think about which type of people make a book exciting or i dream about them at night.
BAB: Who is your favorite character? Why?
Lauren Hill: That’s quite a hard choice. To be honest i’m not actually sure, but probably the main character!
BAB: When did you know you wanted to become a writer?
Lauren Hill: I realized quite young, when i was about 6 and a half. I was on holiday with my family and i got bored one night as i had finished reading all my books, as I’ve been a very keen reader from a young age. I sat down and scribbled down on the back of puzzle book pages and started making up mini stories about Scooby Doo as i was obsessed with that then. Since then I’ve been writing ever since, as i want to make an impact on the world by a great book and make other people love reading as much as i do.
BAB: In writing your books, what was your most surprising discovery?
Lauren Hill: That is actually made sense! Also that i managed to write stories lasting longer than two pages!
BAB: What’s your writing routine? Do you write in the mornings, nights, daily, or when the mood strikes you?
Lauren Hill: Most of the time its when the mood strikes me and i think of a good idea, i then scribble down some thoughts. Then if its a good flowing story i write late at night in nearly complete silence. If there was noise I’d get distracted easily!
BAB: What experience did you have with your publisher? Good? Bad?
Lauren Hill: It was good, easy, smooth.
BAB: If you had to pick one author as your favorite, who would it be?
Lauren Hill: Stephenie Meyer. The Twilight series is amazing!
BAB: Finally, thank you for taking part in this interview. Before you go, what message would you like to send to your fans?
Lauren Hill: Keep reading! It’s both useful and fun, you can escape from reality, especially with a good book! Keep enjoying mine as well, new ones coming soon!
