Interview with Georgina Hannan

When did you first start writing?
I first started writing in school when I was about fourteen years old.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is Obsession and is the second book in the Cursed Trilogy. It all stems from a visit to Dartmoor, Devon in England where I learnt some myths of the area and the story developed from there.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I wanted to be able to see my story in print and ebook and say "I did this", "I actually wrote this". Plus I wanted to prove to all my friends and family that I could actually do it.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
It has provided a big platform for selling my ebook to be able to reach other readers.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Reading what I've written knowing I personally came up with everything, that it's all my imagination.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything! Without them buying, reading & reviewing I am not an author, just a writer. They make me better myself.
What are you working on next?
I am currently working on the final book in the Cursed Trilogy called Absolution!
Who are your favorite authors?
Some of my favourite authors are:

- Lauren Kate

- Karen Mahoney

- Jill Mansell

- Nancy Holder

and of course many more!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I am not writing I am either working as an IT Consultant, seeing friends and family or sleeping.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes I do. I wrote it in school for a project, it was from two points of view about a girl who was cursed to lose those she loved.
How do you approach cover design?
I always have an idea as to how I'd like the cover to look. I have a friend who is a painter and he has painted the covers for the Cursed Trilogy so they are unique.
What do you read for pleasure?
I tend to read the genres I write, paranormal, horror, romance, young adult.
