Interview with L. L. Faroul

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I have a lot of family members, so I'm probably hanging out with one of them. Other than that, I'm probably involved in school related stuff or reading.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Mostly, I get referred to them by other people. I usually stick to print books, but now I'm starting to see the benefits of ebooks.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it was terrible! I get embarrassed just thinking about it. I wrote it while I was in grammar school, and I never finished it. I think I might still have it.
How do you approach cover design?
I find others to do it for me. I know my talents, and cover design isn't one of them.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Ugh, that's such a hard question.
(In no particular order)
1. Horns by Joe Hill
2. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini (This book had amazing character development, and everything came full circle in the end)
3. The Giver by Lois Lowry (Before they made this into a movie; way back when I was a kid, this was one of the books I loved)
4. Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry (I don't know if it is officially the sequel to the above book, but it was amazing what the author did with the main character of The Giver, and how he tied into this book).
5. ?????
What do you read for pleasure?
All day, every day.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
My phone, I take it everywhere.
