Interview with DL Gallie

When did you first start writing?
Late in 2015 I started, I was staring at my house and the idea for Malt Me popped into my head. I mentioned it to my husband and he said "go for it" As soon as I sat down, the words flowed and the voices kept talking to me
What's the story behind your latest book?
My husband and I have always talked about opening a brew pub so the idea stemmed from that.
What are you working on next?
I'm currently working on book 2 and book 3, they are both talking to me at the moment so which ever voice is strongest is which book I work on
Who are your favorite authors?
There are many that I love but my "Go To" authors are:
- Dean Koontz
- Kate McCarthy
- M Stratton
- AD Justice
- Patricia Cornwell
- Rebecca Rohman
- Stephen King
- Martina Cole
- JL Perry
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Chasing my kids around
Listening to music
Chilling with friends
Enjoying a wine or cocktail
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first novel I ever read was The Power of One by Bryce Courtney. I was 13 and it took me 12 months, I was so proud of myself for reading a novel. The next that stands out is Intensity by Dean Koontz. I don't remember reading much after that, until I read Fifty Shades when a friend bought them for me.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have an iPad and when it dies my iPhone...I have a habit of plugging it in to charge but not actually turning it on
Describe your desk
I don't have a desk as such (we are renovating) so its my MacBook and wherever I happen to be...lately it has been the park with my kids, they play and mummy writes in between pushing on swings and flying on the flying-fox
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I enjoyed reading and I was helping fellow indies to promote their works, my husband one day said that I should write a book and a few months later the idea for Malt Me popped into me head...the rest is history as they say
