Author Interview – Elyse Douglas

Pet Peeves?

Doug:  Bad music pumped into TV news, restaurants, TV ads and retail stores.

Elyse:  Bad food prepared badly.  That includes most fast food.

Skittles or M&Ms?

Both:  Definitely M&Ms

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.

Both:  The Astrologer’s Daughter has strong characters, is a fast enjoyable read and includes astrology, presidential politics, love and sex.

Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects?

Both:  Elyse Douglas will publish two Christmas books in September:  The Christmas Diary and Christmas Ever After.  Both stories are about strong women who need a little Christmas magic to uncover the secrets of their hearts.

What inspired you to want to become a writer?

Doug:  The love of reading, listening to and telling stories.  One of the best story tellers I ever met was a janitor I worked with one summer when I was in college.  The other great story teller was my paternal grandfather, Pappy.  He was the grandson of Uncle Johnny Shell, who I wrote about in my blog “My 134-Year-Old Kentucky ‘Uncle’”.

Elyse:  As long as I can remember, I’ve kept journals and written poems.  Writing novels is a more recent adventure.

Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published.

Both:  Some very favorable unsolicited reviews, both for The Astrologer’s Daughter and our other novel, Wanting Rita.
