Interview with Gisselle Markie

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Detroit, Michigan mid-high in homeless population I would probably be considered middle class. Additionally, my life in Detroit wasn't all roses and glory; I've been bullied from elementary to now and I tried to commit suicide multiple times, my writing is like my diary where I tell about me and family through my characters. For example, the young mother in Pardo is a mix of my household.
When did you first start writing?
Well as soon as I learned my ABCs, I wrote my first story during my playful times it was about a close family member in the heavens.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
When a reader voice to me "Your story inspired me" or "I swear this took my breath away"
What are you working on next?
I'm working on a huge series named Pardo an adult-fiction and a smaller series Sole Queen a fantasy female readers will enjoy or maybe, Sole Queen is a bit scary while Pardo will turn your eyes to waterfalls. Hun grab the tissue and turn the lights on.
Who are your favorite authors?
Stephen King of course.
What is your writing process?
First I go through the dump phase on to color coding. Thirdly I design a quick cover to keep me motivated lastly, of course, I edit three times and write. REPEAT about ten thousand times.
