Author: Lauren Hill

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!
