Interview with JD Holiday

What was your favorite book as a child and why?
The Secret Garden. My second grade teacher read it to us at the end of every day.
If you could have a star like on Hollywood Blvd, who would you want to have your star by?
I don't know if Harper Lee has a star on the Hollywood Blvd., but it she did, I would like it to be by hers. Her one story, To Kill a Mocking Bird meant a great deal to me. It was always clear that there were great injustices in the world and in that story it was never more clear.
What are your top three favorite books and why?
To Kill A Mocking Bird by Harper Lee, Madam, Will You Talk by Mary Stewart, and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.
If you could have coffee with anyone (living or dead, real or fictional), who would it be and why?
It was be my parents. I would love to ask them questions I don't know the answers to. Even though, I was 19 when my father died and 20 when my mother died I felt like a child still in many ways. I would love to learn more about them as an adult myself.
What would you say is your most interesting writing quirk?
I stop and write anytime a story or part of a story come to me. The problem is I have to write it down right away or I forget it. I end up jotting notes down on any piece of paper, I can find and stick all the notes into a binder that I have to go through one by one as I type my manuscripts. I have tried to be more organized but I can't change this.
Do you write full-time or part-time?
I write part-time going between writing and painting. About 4 hours a day.
