Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Firstly, a full bladder, shortly followed by hunger pangs and a craving for warm rice and pickled gherkins (don't knock it until you've tried it). I can be utterly zombified physically first thing in the morning but can plonk into my chair and write beautifully for at least an hour or two. Around 3 in the afternoon a reversal sets in. My mind turns to porridge whereas my body wants to run a marathon. I believe it's called biorhythms or the rhythm method or something.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Running marathons.

    Debra J. Rigas is one of those rare authors who can immerse you in a bath of words, and let you enjoy a long, hot, relaxing soak. I would call her a sensual writer in that every visual detail, every smell, every emotion washes over you as you read - observations that you always wanted to note but could never find the words for. This is a wonderful take on Hemmingway, the ideally rounded man and a life that so many of us still find captivating.
