Interview with Eleanor Butler

Who are your favorite authors?
That's a tricky question. It's like asking a parent to choose their favourite child. But some authors I like are Jodi Picoult, Brigid Kemmerer, Cassandra Clare, Richelle Mead, Matthew Reilly, Robert Muchamore and Jessica Sorensen.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Some have been recommended to me. Some authors I've found through others. Some I've chosen because the blurb drew me in.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I ever wrote was for English in year nine. It wasn't the best story I've ever written but it helped hook me on writing.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I'm a shy and quiet person so I put a lot of myself into my stories. The thing I like most about writing though, is the feeling I get when I finish a story and I know I've done it justice.
What is your writing process?
Usually each story starts with an idea, for example the idea for Apprehensive started with the idea of wanting to tell about a series of firsts in a relationship. From there, I chjose the names for the characters. Sometimes I use the names of people in my life but usually I just see a name and know that's the one. Then I start writing. Most of the time I don't plan the plot before. I use the first draft to work out what I want the story to be about and go from there.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have an iPad so I kike using this because I can have books from different platforms (kindle, iBooks, etc).
