Interview with Sabrina Louise Andielle

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I love what I do, so getting up isn't something I need inspiration for. But since you probably want an answer, I would say that the idea of learning from reading a wide breadth of subjects and sharing what I've learned by writing novels gets me going in the morning and sometimes late nights.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
This may sound a little cliche, but I love talking about spirit, divinity, collective consciousness, book, movies and ways to remain spirit in flesh. I also try to get outdoors and walk a couple of miles every day or so. The rest of my time is spent reading, listening to music, and communicating with my God; oh, I squeeze as much time as possible watching Gaia TV episodes speaking on such subjects as the Annunaki and Ancient Civilizations, so my days are pretty full. Just a little. Just a little.
What is your writing process?
After completing my morning spiritual routine, I turn to my current work in progress and review what I've written, make corrections, resume where I left off until my mind needs a break, then repeat.
On an average day, I can accomplish a chapter a day which takes me about five to six hours. On a good day, I can get a chapter and a half accomplished in about nine hours. But if I glue my butt to the chair, or bed, as I do grab my laptop and write while propped up, I can get two or three chapters done which will end up being about a twelve hours night.
On those long nights, I'm usually dead the next day. I haven't built up the muscle to pull all-nighters back to back yet.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes and no, so I must laugh. I started writing stories with a childhood friend; we would write about the life of Barbie or V.C. Andrews fan fiction. We couldn't afford anything like the journals I now write in, so we would put loose leaf paper in a three prong folder and pass the folder back and forward during class. It wasn't until I graduated from High School that I started writing on my own original material about organized crime; we all have to start somewhere, for me it was the Marabino Family, but these days the only crimes I write about are the spiritual and emotional violations on and of humanity.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Well, I subscribe to numerous websites that send out daily deals and announcements about interesting ebooks. That, however, is not enough because they're so general while I like looking for specific topics such as metaphysical and visionary fiction, history, spiritual fiction, biographies, and a solid, good fantasy novel. To accomplish that I comb through the kindle listening on Amazon. I'm also starting to use Smashwords, although I've had an account for a few years now. With that said, my Kindle library is starting to look like my physical library- both have more books than I could read in a year.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
1)"Johnathan Livingston Seagull" because it taught me to want to fly for the thrill of it.
2)"Lord of the Ring" because it taught me to fight the good fight no matter the size of that which oppose you.
3)"Flowers in the Attic" because it brings back childhood memories.
4)"The Lost Teachings of Jesus" because it gave me more lessons from Jesus (which I totally enjoy applying to life.)
5)"The Prophet" because the poetry it shares is priceless and life-affirming.
What do you read for pleasure?
Last one. I usually read metaphysical/spiritual/occult/new age/philosophy. I love the stuff so much, I decided to write about it.
Thanks for Listening!
