Interview with Daisy Talley

What motivated you to become an author?
I know this sounds seriously cliché or whatever, but honestly it was pretty much life itself. People these days are less confident in themselves because of magazines and photo-edited pictures. I'm the same way. So I write about people with personalities I wish I had, but still have a fair share of flaws too. My characters are basically the people I could never be.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Seeing everything come together in a million different ways. It's like the story is possessing you, making me write what it wants. You would think that such a helpless feeling would be a negative, but it just tells you that you are doing your job correctly.
What do your fans mean to you?
I'm one of those people who won't do something unless there are actually people who want me to do it. So if my fans suggest something to me via E-mail, and I like it, I'm going to use it. So really, my fans are my writing.
What are you working on next?
I'll give you the title... Chasing Nightmares
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading. It's kind of part of my job as well though.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
yeah. It was about these kids who have never met before and they found a ship. A "friendship". Ha Ha Ha. Yeah... I was pretty literal as a kid.
How do you approach cover design?
How do I not? I have probably used every process known to man.
Is e-book form your preferred viewing?
Oh hec no. Paper-pages-preferred to the death. But I'll take what I can get.
Describe your desk
A wood structure that carries my life.
Do you hope to god people enjoy your stories?
what type of question is this?!
