Interview with Fay Knowles

When did you first start writing?
At the age of nine, when I wrote a poem about a "rushing stream".
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The characters in my short stories are fictitious, but I love to bring them to life for the readers. My plots are like little gems. I take delight in devising new stories, new characters, and new settings, linking everything together and creating the “ahh factor” at the end.
What are you working on next?
More short stories, articles and another romantic suspense novel.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have a Kindle Fire and just love it!
Where do you find your inspiration for writing?
From past and present experiences in life, from chance encounters, from thoughts of what might be.
How would you describe your book "Sunbeams from the Heart - A Collection of Twelve Romantic Short Stories"?
Heart-warming, nostalgic, and captivating, “Sunbeams from the Heart” appeals to all ages.
What can the reader expect from your collection of short stories?
Each story takes the reader on a riveting new journey, drawing them into the challenges and desires of the characters, and moving swiftly to a satisfying and sometimes surprising conclusion.
