Interview with Lucille Barilla

What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean everything to me. Writing is the only thing I have ever wanted to do and the fact that someone has gone the extra mile to read what I write is amazing!
What are you working on next?
I have several things in the pot! I am working on always working!
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
My family, they are the reason I push myself to hard every day.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Taking care of my children, listening to music, reading gossip on the internet.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I just plug in my interests and see what pops up!
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
The first story I ever wrote was an essay for third grade. I still have it in my attic somewhere.
What is your writing process?
Lots of coffee and lots of quiet!
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I ever read was a children's book called "Daniel Lion's Book". It was the first book I was able to read by myself. I was 3.
How do you approach cover design?
I use what appeals to me. I figure if I think it is interesting, there are others that will too!
What are your five favorite books, and why?
1. Gone With The Wind. Beautifully written, amazing story.
2. Flowers in the Attic. Scared me to death, but the idea that people can survive in horrible circumstances intrigued me.
3. Brideshead Revisited. I love anything to do with England and it was set in the past, so I was suckered in.
