Interview with A. Gavazzoni

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love to write because it allows me to live in another world, and the greatest joy for me is to be able to tell the stories I have in my mind
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything, I write for my pleasure and also for their pleasure and I love to chat and discuss my novels with them. I always answer their e-mails and messages. It's very good to know people love your work.
What are you working on next?
I'm working on Hidden Motives Book III ( I still don't have a title), but it will be the end of the trilogy.
Who are your favorite authors?
Hard to choose just one
I love so many!
Emily Bronte, Colleen McCullough, Andrew Neiderman ,John Grisham, Stieg Larsson. It's hard to decide, I can't name just one.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Hope!, I'm a dreamer, and I always think “today is going to be a wonderful day. I chose to be happy!”
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading, watching movies, painting, working out. Time is so short to do everything I love
How do you approach cover design?
First I chose the title, and then I start to think about the cover, it must explain the title without words, in my opinion
What do you read for pleasure?
Everything! I love thrillers, I love romance, I love erotica, I love vampire stories, I love suspense...well, I love books
Describe your desk
A mess! Tons of papers, pen and pencils everywhere, books and my precious coffee machine – I depend on it to survive!
What are your five favorite books, and why?
I have a thousand favorite books, but if I have to chose only five....
Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights – It is so tragic, all about revenge and hate
Colleen McCullough’s Thorn Birds – A sad love story, with all the right ingredients to make you cry a river
The Devil’s Advocate by Andrew Neiderman. A book to make you think where vanity can take you.
John Grisham’s The Firm – Power, money or freedom? A hard choice for a young lawyer
Gone With the Wind by Margareth Mitchell – This book is pure poetry!
When did you first start writing?
I was ten years old when I wrote my first "novel". I destroyed it right away because I was ashamed of my ideas and words. I had a typewriter and I loved to spend my time writing.
