Interview with Mercedes Siler
What do your fans mean to you?
"Fans" is kind of a weird word, but it's always nice to find people who like what I like.
What are you working on next?
I'm writing a long short story for an anthology. It's set in the 90's SoCal music and party scene.
Who are your favorite authors?
Tanith Lee, Jane Yolen, Stephen King...so many others.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Scrolling Facebook, getting kids snacks, driving....
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I start with the free book, then follow the back matter to other books if I liked it.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes. It was called "The Princess and the Happy Ending" and I wrote and illustrated it for a second grade project.
What do you read for pleasure?
Romance and anything that I know will probably have a happy ending.
