Interview with Eve Flockhart

How do you approach cover design?
I like to think about my characters and their image for a picture and then I'll go on font download websites like Dafont to find the perfect one for my cover (which takes ages for a picky person like me!) the take ages again to choose the colour that matches.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
I really like the book Saffy's Angel by Hilary Mackay. It's very light hearted and funny and it always puts me in a good mood, the same with the rest of the Casson series from which it came.
Vickey Angel by Jacqueline Wilson is also a great one. It addresses a serious matter with a relatable approach and has some giggles along the way.
The Divergent trilogy is EPIC! If you like the hunger games you will love this. Thrilling, heart felt, and written by an extremely talented women who is only around 24.
I'm a sucker for the Twilight series. The movies definitely do not do those books justice!
I also really enjoy reading all of Cathy Cassidy's books. She's an extremely talented author and I don't think I could choose a favourite book although I do like Dizzy, Driftwood and Lucky Stars.
What do you read for pleasure?
I have recently got into reading teen fiction. The Bad Boy's Girl by JessGirl93 is one of the best on Wattpad I have to say, with over 70,000,000 reads (Congratulations!)
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I read most of my e-books on my ipod and computer
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Scotland and some of the vocabulary has definitely been sneaking into my writing. Here's an example of some of the modern day Scottish slang:
Dome-Head
Heed-Head
Aye-Yes
Knickers-Pants
Cheesin-Gettting extra happy or over excited about something
Getting in-Pulling

Hope that was educating :)
When did you first start writing?
I've always loved writing stories since I was little. I probably first started in P1
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I'm not writing I'm dancing. Dancing is a passion I've had since I was around 3 and a half and I've not stopped since. It takes up pretty much all the free time I have bit I don't mind because I adore it!
Describe your desk
My desk normally consists of:
Food
Tea
My ipod
a pen
a hair bobble
random bits of paper
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I enjoy expanding my vocabulary and I love stepping into someone else's shoes for a while and living their life
Who are your favorite authors?
Cathy Cassidy is my favourite for advice fiction
Stephanie Meyer for drama
Hilary Mackay for light hearted comedy
Veronica Roth for action
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Most of either get recommended to me by friends or by the website they come from according to my previous history.
