Interview with R.E.S. Tidmore

What do you read for pleasure?
Hmmm. That is a tough one. I read anything that insights my curiosity, really. But if I had to pick a section that I find myself strolling toward in a book store, it would be romance. I want happy endings, and I want to experience the entire ride of first sighting, first touch, first kiss, and the heart ache of not locking down that love until the last page.
When did you first start writing?
I wrote some poetry and monologues in high school, but never really thought of myself as a writer. See, I have dyslexia so my grammar is not so great. It wasn’t until college that my perspective on writing began to change. Writing wasn’t all commas and periods. It was about being able to tell a story with emotion. That’s when the light bulb went off or some would say, the heavens opened up and the angles sang. “Story-telling.” Hell, I had been telling stories since I was a kid. It drove my parents crazy; always have to set the record straight with others because of my mouth.
It was my three year in college I began taking writing classes. That was it. I never looked back, been writing ever since. So here I am a story hoarder. I have been writing for almost ten years now.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I am not writing, I am work as a Human Resource Generalist for a small company in San Diego. I have been with the company for over six years. Also, my husband and I are runners, not fast runners, but the kind that can run forever. We train together for marathons and half marathons. This past year we have started to break our two older kids into running with us. My son William is 13 and my daughter Emily is 10. They make it about three miles and poop out.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans are my friends. I try and cultivate relationships with as many of them as I can. If they friend me on facebook or follow me on twitter, or reach out to me through any social media I take a few minutes and visit their pages and their tweets. I like to learn a little about them. I will post a comment here or there so they knew they are important to me.
