Interview with Adeline Merson

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy of writing, to me, is being able to put down whatever you want and to be as creative as you want to be.
What do your fans mean to you?
No matter what your profession, whether an artist or a writer, your fans mean a lot because they motivate you to keep going.
What are you working on next?
I'm considering doing a series of Coyotes adventures.
Who are your favorite authors?
Katherine Laskey, The Erins (Erin Hunter), and of course J.K. Rowling.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I will be attending an art school next year, so that will motivate me to get our of bed each day.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I enjoy drawing, animating, and reading.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Angel. I wrote it in first grade as a show and tell project. It was a funny little story about a Russian Blue kitten trying to find her family. We used pictures off the internet to illustrate it. My mother had it put into a hardback book. I might consider rewriting and illustrating it one day.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I remember reading Skippy John Jones and wanting to write and draw little cartoons based on the character. I really liked the art style. I still have those books and a Skippy John Jones doll.
How do you approach cover design?
I take out key characters and scenes, and sketch out multiple ideas then try to see which one captures the most attention from my friends.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
I love the Harry Potter series because of the different worlds, spells, and magic. You feel like you're stepping into a different universe. I also enjoyed the 13 Treasure; its a book for all ages. It has a balance between adventure and calm setting. I like the Warrior series by Erin Hunter. They have so many characters, all of which are unique with a different plot for each ark. Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children is also a favorite. Its a blend of adventure and mystery, my two favorite genres. Its a dark setting, yet the characters help make the book more cheerful. Last, I would have to say White Fang. It's a classic. Its a long, detailed story about a wolf dog traveling from place to place, trying to find his family.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I like the feeling of being in total control of the writing.
