Interview with Molly O'Hare

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
​Other than my pets demanding food in the morning, I look forward to finding something to make me laugh. I know that is a completely cheesy answer, but one of my favorite pastimes is doing Improv on stage. Laughing and finding new reasons to laugh is what drives me.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading. That's a pretty solid answer. However, I also dabble in improv and comedy shows. What can​ I say, I love entertainment in all forms.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
​Actually, this is a really neat question. I normally find my books through word of mouth or lists created on Goodreads. I see a subgenre that intrigues me at the time, then find a list that goes with that, and work my way through the whole thing until its complete.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, and it was horrible. I used to write short stories online for fun. I remember publishing it, then going back to reread it and cringing...
What is your writing process?
​I wish I had a better answer for this, but the stories I tell myself at night to help me fall asleep stay with me for days. Sometimes I write down the plot, and if I feel it could be a fun story, I start writing it. However, my muse is quite strange. It refuses to show up if I make an outline or plot out each step of the story. Basically, when I want to write, I sit down in front of my computer, put on light music and let whatever comes out, come out. Sometimes​ it's great. Other times... well, you know.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I was just talking about this with one of my friends yesterday. The first story I can remember reading was a series​ that was called "Dolphin Diaries". I loved the fact a young girl lived her life on a boat and interacted with sea creatures all day long. I think I was in middle school at the time.
What do you read for pleasure?
Romance. I actually read ton's of romance books every single week. I can't get enough of them.​
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I normally use my iPad to read on, but I also read on my phone as well.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have a million​ stories running around in my head. One day, I decided I might as well write them down.
