Interview with Samie Sands
What are you working on next?
I am currently working on the follow up to Lockdown!
Who are your favorite authors?
I love Lindsey Kelk, Malorie Blackman, Sophie Kinsella and J. Cornell Michel.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I like to experiment with new genres and authors, so I just research all the time.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it was last year. Lockdown - a zombie tale with a difference.
What is your writing process?
I start out with a plan, but that never quite works out. My stories always seem to take on a life of their own!
How do you approach cover design?
I am a graphic designer and that's the industry I have always worked in, so cover design is a job I relish.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I adore my Kindle Fire - best purchase ever! Although, you can't beat a good paperback.
Describe your desk
Organised chaos! It may look a mess, but everything is exactly where I want it.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I have always been an avid reader, so I love creating something I would want to read.
What do you read for pleasure?
I read anything from sci fi and horror to trashy romance - it all depends on my mood.
When did you first start writing?
I have always wanted to write, but didn't get the confidence to try until last year.
