Interview with Jillian Dzieciol

What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean everything to me. If I didn't have any fans then all of my aspirations of becoming a successful (now high school) teen author would never come true, so thank you to all of my fans, you are awesome!!!!!!!!!!!
When when will your book "The Wonderwood Sister's Mystery's: The Mystery of the Killer Secret Admirer" be published?
My book is now published! It has always been my biggest dream to publish a book! :-)
What motivated you to become a teenager author?
The thing that motivated me to become an author is I was reading this one book one day and I was not enjoying it, then I thought to myself, if teens wrote books for other teens to read then other teens would enjoy the books because obviously teens know what other teens would like to read. That is what inspired me to become a middle school teen author.
What is your writing process?
I have a writing process that is very similar to what an athlete does before a game, I jam some of my favorite songs. After abut a half hour of playing some of the newest pop hits and listening to a few of my less recent favorite songs I sit down and start writing with songs on in the back ground that remind me of my book that I am working on at the moment. It helps me to concentrate even better when I have music on in the background when I'm writing.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story that I ever read was called "Puppy Mudge" and it was my favorite book before I started Kindergarten.
How do you approach cover design?
I approached mu cover design when I was about 75% of the way done with my book, and I created my own cover by printing a all black background and I printed my title and name in pink. After I printed it out I drew and cut out colored paper for my pictures on my cover.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Divergent, Insurgent, Allegiant, Kingdom Keepers, and Sisters Grimm. I love all of those books because they have a lot of adventure in them.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
The Kindle Fire
Describe your desk
My desk is awesome. I have a bed that is like a bunk bed, it's a bed on the top and a desk under the bed, it's called a loft bed. However awesome my desk may sound, I do most of my writing in different places. I usually try to write every chapter in a different spot in my house, but I do about 25% of it at my desk. If it was summer or spring I would definitely do my writing outside.
When did you first start writing?
I first started writing stories when I was a toddler, my first short story was called "Bob the Bird in Opposite Land."
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My greatest joy of writing to me is that you have ideas inside of your head and you can type them and then people will want to read them.
What are you working on next?
I would love to work on another mystery book in the same series as my first mystery book, however I am also working on a poetry book and cook book which I am hoping to publish on this website too.
Who are your favorite authors?
I have only one author who I think is the best, Veronica Roth. Veronica Roth wrote Divergent and all of the other books in that series.
What is your favorite sport?
My favorite sport is by far volleyball. I was on my school volleyball team this past season. By the way, the position that I play is a setter.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I am not writing I love to spend my time with my family. When you write a book you spend more time away from your family then you would ever want to. I spend a lot of my time with my little sister Samantha. One of Samantha and my favorite things to do together is play volleyball, she is a really good spiker and I am her setter.
What is your favorite place to go on vacation?
My favorite places in the world are St. Pete beach Florida, and "Walt Disney World" Orlando Florida. If I was able to move to Florida I would have a house on the beach in St. Pete beach in Florida. However if Florida didn't exist then I would defiantly want to go on vacation to Hawaii, or California. (California is where Jillian Wonderwood lives in my first mystery book, " The Wonderwood Sister's Mysteries:The Mystery of the Killer Secret Admirer")
How can i contact you to know more about your books?
I would be more than happy to contact you if you email me at feel free to ask me any other things that you would like to see I my interview, or if you have any questions about my books. If you do email me, please write the words "Wonderwood Sisters" in the subject box if possible. Some times I skim through my emails so I would want to recognize it if someone wanted to ask me any questions.
What is another one of your favorite things to do besides writing?
I love to watch and play sports. My favorite sport to play is volleyball, and my favorite sport to watch is hockey. My favorite hockey team is the Chicago Black Hawks!
