Interview with Acacia Green

Describe your desk
My desk is a table, set out in the shade of a tree, overlooking a beautiful lake. I got rid of my desk a long time ago. A big fan of Tiny Houses and minimal living, I write where I like, rather than being restricted to a desk.
What are you working on next?
I have about a dozen stories all sitting there waiting to be developed. Most of them are fantasy works, although one is a book with adult themes. I would love to make a living from writing, so I could get my stories out, and this is still my goal.
What is your writing process?
My books come to me and I have to get them out of my head. I tend to 'blurt' the book out, writing it out in a sort of transcript way. Just a series of main events. I then spend the next year or three, working the book, getting the storyline together, making sure the events link up and there is flow.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything. I enjoy hearing how they think the storyline should have gone, or how they would have ended the book. This means that they are using their imagination, their creativity and this is an important aspect in life as it helps one to find solutions to problems.
Who are your favorite authors?
C.A. Hocking
Kim Fraser
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Life. I love waking up in the morning and seeing what the day will bring.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Seeing life through my five year old's eyes. At the moment, you might catch me fishing, travelling, chatting, singing, dancing and just enjoying life.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
There's a couple of ways. I'll type in tags for whatever I feel like reading; look up a title and then look at books around it; or a subject I'm interested in.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
It was a story about what I did on the weekend. Since I love animals, the stars were my pets at the time.
How do you approach cover design?
I try to find something that reminds me of the story. For the first book, there's a figure walking along a path to what could be a planet. This for me is Harland's journey to Earth. The second book as a figure holding a heart, and this represents all of the characters in my book. Their hearts are broken or damaged due to life's experiences. The third book, well it's love, two souls being reunited and in love. It's also a bit goth in styling, plus I loved it when I first saw it and couldn't get past it.
