Interview with Leanne Halling

Who are your favorite authors?
My inspirations for writing children's books are Beatrix Potter and A.A Milne. I admire their ability to entertain on different levels, both the children being read to and the adults who read to them.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Work, work, work. I'm a Library Assistant which I really enjoy but my passion is to be able to write, write write!
What is your writing process?
My writing process starts in my mind where it marinates for however long it takes and when all the flavors have combined and absorbed into either the beginning, middle or end of a story, I begin breathing life into the characters, plots, and landscapes that have developed by getting them all on paper or the computer where the flavors develop even more until finally their story is told and in print.
