Interview with Rebecca Caviness

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
It's relaxing and as I write, I feel as if I'm personally on the journey as I'm creating my own novels!
What do your fans mean to you?
They mean to me as much as my books do. Knowing someone loves my novels as much as me makes me feel close to me readers.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I draw/ sketch nature or anything that may come to mind. Often times while drawing, it helps inspire books or stories.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
It was a poem when I was 10 or 11 called 'Just this Guy.'
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The Tree House series inspired me as a kid to write and be open to creativity.
How do you approach cover design?
I think on the feelings it conveys about my book and if it would catch my attention if I saw it in the store.
What do you read for pleasure?
Mysteries, romance, supernatural and horror books.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Honestly social media.
Describe your desk
Neat, organized because I can't stand clutter and it makes it easier to find what I need to when I need it.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Georgia, and it made me see the good and the bad. It was more into the southern parts where you can see how middle class citizens were and how hard times affect others behaviors. I feel like growing up in Georgia has made my writing more towards trying to show others of my age or younger that even when growing up in hard times, it's important to follow your dreams and never give up on them.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing around 10 years ago.
