I am happy to take part in The Next Big Thing: Authors Tagging Authors! I was tagged by Becca Chopra, author of The Chakra Diaries, www.beccachopra.com
I have been tagged in a promotion that requires me to tag more authors in my blog on the week of Nov 26.
I am thrilled to keep this going. So what I am going to do is answer the questions below, tag a new set of authors, then they answer ( or write something about their book), tag authors, etc., so we can all learn and be inspired by each other. I’m going to be answering questions about my book, Star Child.
What is the title of your book?Star Child
Where did the idea come from for the book? The idea for Star Child came literally "out of the blue" I was driving home from a writer's workshop along a beautiful coast road in Martha's Vineyard. Many of my fellow writers wrote fiction and I was intrigued by that idea. "What would I write, if I were to write fiction? " I thought. Instantly, the thought, "I would have to write about a starchild" came to me. I didn't know what that was, but was so surprised that I had to find out more. I went home and wrote the first paragraph, a description of a starchild.
What genre does your book fall under?Star Child is a fairy tale, an inspirational book and a love story all in one. I have found enthusiastic readers from all age groups from 10- 90.
Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? Help me out here readers!
Ancient Mother: Judi Dench, Olivia Dukakis or Frances McDormand
The Baker: Liam Neeson
