Interview with Steven Charles Hirschfeld

What is it in a man to write his journals and how does it change your life?
I wrote the journals by hand in hard-bound books that I hoped to read and ruminate over in retirement. Now that I have an audience - through self-publishing - I feel this has encouraged readers to find their own voice.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything. I believe authenticity is the core of my reader’s desire. The “diary” series was published with this in mind.
What are you working on next?
I am working on the plots from the journal books to build on the character’s lives.
