Genevieve Scholl: author interview, by Isabelle Esling
1. Can you tell me a little bit about yourself?
I am a small town country girl who loves to be creative and also loves to travel. My heart lies in Ireland and is just waiting for the rest of me to catch up and be reunited with it. Ummm lol I’m not sure what else to add to this answer.
That’s me in a nutshell
2. What motivated you to become a writer?
I was bullied a lot in High School, so I started writing stories where the bullies lost in the end and that was basically how I got interested in writing. Eventually, it just became a passion of mine.
3. What kind of books do you write?
I write mostly romance novels, but have also dabbled in a little mystery and will be working on a Paranormal in the future.
4. What are you doing when you’re not writing?
I am also a photographer, crafter, dancer, singer, designer, and as I said I love to travel.
5. What is the biggest challenge you had to face as a writer?
This question is harder to answer, but I suppose my biggest challenge as a writer would have to be the confidence in myself.
6. Where do you find most of your inspiration?
My inspiration comes from various places. Sometimes it is as simple as a cool sentence that pops in my head and sometimes I model a character after a friend. Mostly, however, my inspiration is my dreams. Most of my story ideas have come from dreams that I have had.
7. Are you in favor of traditional publishing? If so, please explain why…
I have nothing against traditional publishing, but have nothing against self-publishing either.
8. What kind of books do you read?
I read mostly romance novels (which helps with my writing), but I love the mystery in Darynda Jones’s Grave Series. Also, I cannot get enough of James Patterson’s books. I will read teen books sometimes as well if they interest me, but mostly I gravitate toward the romance section of a bookstore.
9. Who is your biggest influence in the world of writing?
That one’s easy… Nora Roberts.
10. Where do you see yourself in the next 5 years?
I honestly can’t see the next five years. I am just taking it one day at a time. My long term goal, however, is to be a District Attorney and have at least one bestselling novel.
