Welcome to Thursday Talks, where Kay will bring you short interviews with Authors, Reviewers/blogs, and Beta Readers. This week’s interview is with, Author Maggie Adams.
Welcome Maggie! 1. Have you ever written something that made you upset?
I cry every time I write a pivotal scene within my stories. I know how it’s going to end, so if I can make myself cry with the words I use, then I know it’s a good, emotional scene.
2. Who is your favorite character that you have written?
Wow! It’s hard to say. There’s a little bit of me in every female character I write, but the male characters have such great dialogue, and the supporting characters add so much life to the story. If I had to say right now, it’s Lucky from Forged in Fire. He’s been knocked around, heartbroken, and beaten up by life lately, and he still keeps fighting.
3. If you could write a book based on one character from television, books, or someone you meet while developing your author career who would it be and what type of story would you write?
There is this person I met recently. He truly feels he is good hearted person, delivering wisdom and care to those he cares about. But he is also a sadist; and sometimes he can’t help but play the mental cat/mouse games with people. This constant war within himself makes him very interesting, but I wouldn’t want to get too close.
4. What is the worst/hardest question that you as an author have been asked during an interview?
Probably about my childhood. It was bad by most standards but not as bad as some, so I don’t know how to approach it really. I don’t want to come off as a “pitiful me” type, but I want to be honest as it did have a major bearing on my need to write. So I simply try to tell it in a factual, unemotional way, and hope for the best.
