Interview with Ruti Yudovich

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Israel. Israel is a melting pot of people from all over the world. Being exposed to many languages, culture and music instilled in me the love for other cultures. I love writing about different characters representing different cultures. I write about the amazing life I had, growing up in a newly born state. The camaraderie, the care for one another was one of a kind. I am fascinated by stories of wars and struggle and I like to ask a lot of questions. :-) I incorporate those stories in my books.
When did you first start writing?
Back in 2006. But I wrote poetry since I was 14.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story of my childhood and a tragedy when I was 28.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I always wanted to write stories that inspire people. I love books that do the same.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Creating new characters, making them come to life, do things, make decisions,
What do your fans mean to you?
They are the source of my inspiration. When I get responses from them on how my books affect them it makes my day!
What are you working on next?
The next level of the series: Speak Hebrew for Real Advance.
A new Science Fiction book called: The Black Hills
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Create a new story; helping people see that life can be a wonderful adventure.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Taking walks and photograph esthetic photos; sing; helping people; dance; and promoting my books.
What is your writing process?
I choose a subject that interests me. I decide upon the message and then I create the characters: the protagonist and the antagonist; what's the protagonist aspires to and what barriers he has to overcome.
