Interview with Lissa Dobbs

What do you read for pleasure?
Just about anything. I particularly enjoy mythology, folklore, and religion.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I like learning new things and doing things for myself. It's fun.
What are you working on next?
I'm working on a trilogy that's taking me forever, and I have several other projects going.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I remember a little of it. I did a collection of short stories. I know one of them had to do with an apple-headed boy who died and came back to life.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I prefer print books. They're easier on my eyes. I have a Kindle app on my phone, though.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Oh, my gosh. I read so much as a child. I think the stories I enjoyed the best as a kid were the Dorrie the Witch books by Patricia Coombs.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My newest book grew from my love of folklore. I wanted to incorporate a goddess that wasn't one of the main ones in other books.
What do your fans mean to you?
Where would I be without them? I love to interact with them, and I hope my stories provide a momentary escape from everyday life.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Pretty much figuring out what I want to write. I also have a day job, so that takes up a good bit of time.
