Interview with Lisa Picard
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything! My readers are the reason I do what I do as an author.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Sharing my knowledge and experiences in a fun and relatable way.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Growing my own food, hiking in the forests and mountains where I live, dancing, and reading the wonderful and inspiring work of other authors.
What is your writing process?
I live with the characters in my head for months, listening to them whispering their stories in my ear at quiet moments. I call this "circling the plughole'. Then, at some point, I get sucked down that plughole and then I binge write for as long as it takes to finish the book.
When did you first start writing?
When I was three years old!
Describe your desk
Soft, comfy, sensual and luxurious... I write on my bed, with my laptop on a tray table!
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Adventure, fun and learning new things!
What do you read for pleasure?
I'm a total book slut! I'll read anything and everything, from the sacred to the profane.
What do you want to be when you grow up?
Hopefully I'll never grow up!
I want to stay curious and experimental and adventurous.
What are you working on next?
A follow-up to my novel, "Dear Yoni", called, "Dear Lingam".
This is the story of conscious sexuality from the male perspective.
