Interview with Marsha L Ceniceros

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I ever read was Green Eggs and Ham, by Dr. Seuss. I was in first grade, our class visited the library for the first time. Not only was I memorized with this book, it held an irresistible unusual beauty. I held onto this book like it was the only book in the world. Back in the day our family was poor. And for a child to visit the library for the first time in their life, is a beautiful experience. To be exposed to the imagination of others is a wonderful gift.
What are you working on next?
I have completed a Science Fiction full length novel, and working on another. I am waiting for the editing to be completed, on the second round at the moment. Here is a quote from my editor, 'I feel like trumpets should play! The battles, and the subsequent family scenes, are very well put together. I feel like your story makes a great social commentary.'
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I care for children and my husband, he is a disabled veteran. My spirit is fairly busy, and you will find me up late writing, and up early providing care.
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Actually I don't know yet. I have been out of the writing business for a few years, so much has changed. I am looking into this.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, this was the autobiography of my life. It currently keeps my other unpublished books company on the closet shelf. One day I will publish it, after a fabulous re-wright.
Describe your desk
I have three desk I use, depends on which part of the house I am in. Between a tad messy and clean. I write a lot of notes leaving them here and there.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Our family moved to California right before I entered third grade. The switch of lifestyle was definitely different, day and night. Everything from people, schools, and lifespan in general influenced me.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My greatest joy is knowing I have changed a person’s life for the better.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
God inspires me, every day. He gave me everything I have today, and I don't take advantage of this.
What do you read for pleasure?
Poetry, of course, and among my other hobbies is reading autobiographies. I enjoy science fiction and reading children's books to the many children I care for in the childcare I provide.
