Interview with LaVonna Moore

What are you working on next?
I am currently working on The Unusual, Unknown & Unexplained 4, and more children's books.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I am not working on my books, I enjoy photography and love working in my orchard of fruit and nut trees. I also enjoy designing book covers. My book covers that I have designed can be found at: http://www.selfpubbookcovers.com/VonnaArt. I have designed hundreds of one-of-a-kind pre-made book covers!
How do you approach cover design?
For all of my mystery books, I looked for something that grabbed my attention from the first moment I saw it.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing years ago when I was working on my first book, The Unusual, Unknown & Unexplained. I have written several books since then.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is a children's book titled, "Callie The Calico Kitty." It is based on a true story. Callie narrates this sweet and adorable book. This book is very educational and teaches children about country animals and country life. It features Callie in several different outfits, hats and wigs!
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love mysteries and enjoy working on my mystery books. I have always loved movies and books that are based on a true story. I find them very interesting. It always feels so good when I finish one of my books!
What do your fans mean to you?
It always makes me feel good to hear comments about my books. I love to hear from my readers.
