Hi Heather and welcome......please tell us a little about yourself.
What inspired you to write Planning to Live?
What authors have inspired your work?
Marian Keyes is a huge influence. I love how her characters seem so real and I work hard to do that myself. Also some of Sophie Kinsella's books (especially "Remember Me?") and Stephen King for his depth of
character and the way he writes what works for him without getting too hung up on what he "should" be doing.
What are you reading now....?
At the moment, I am reading "Medicus: A Novel of the Roman Empire" by Ruth Downie. Though I don't think I'll ever want to do the kind of research needed to write historical fiction I love reading it. I have
committed to reading 111 books in 2011, as part of a challenge at http://lifeisshort-readfast.blogspot.com/2010/12/111-in-11-challenge.html, and I'll be tracking all my reading at www.goodreads.com/heatherwardell and would love to have even more friends there!
Can you share any future plans?
I have a new book out now, "Stir Until Thoroughly Confused", and am aiming to release another three in 2011. It's going to be a challenge, since I "only" released three last year, but I think I can do it! I am
intending to keep my ebook price at $0.99 each throughout 2011, because I get lots of email saying how nice it is to not have to pay more. If you'd like to download my free book "Life, Love, and a Polar
Bear Tattoo", read excerpts of my other books, or see what I'm planning for the rest of 2011, you can visit my web site at http://www.heatherwardell.com/ and a huge thanks to Tina for letting me do this interview!
