Interview with Sherri A. Obermark

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The very best part of process is receiving positive feedback from my readers. It has been gratifying to see that I have been able to open minds about tension and pain, and that people are being helped with their physical issues.
What do your fans mean to you?
When I introduce new ideas to my readers, and they respond to what they learn in a way that allows them to overcome their pain, it is a wonderful synergy between us. I feel gratitude for their trust in me, and their willingness to try something new to change their health.

Who are your favorite authors?
I have many favorite authors in literature, Kurt Vonnegut, William Shakespeare, Mary Shelley, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Margaret Atwood, and Mark Twain to name a few, but in the field of pain management there is no one better than Dr. John Sarno. This highly underrated doctor and researcher is without a doubt one of the most intuitive doctors who has ever practiced medicine. Fifty years ago this doctor figured out the link between tension and pain, which is the crux of so much pain today. The medical community ignores the obvious tenants of Dr. Sarno's work at the peril of their patients. His work is revered by a certain community of people who understand his work, and have had great success by using it to resolve their pain. The reason back pain treatment has such an incredibly bad track record is that we continue to treat the wrong affliction, and do not address the cause. Dr. Sarno understood all of this, and he was right. I am hopeful his work will receive the proper recognition one day.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I really love the creative process, so when I am not writing, I'm usually making art in some manner. It may be out taking photos while traveling, creating digital art, drawing or painting. Nature is a great inspiration to me, so I enjoy walking and jogging outdoors as much as possible. My family and friends are very important to me, and so I spend as much time as I can getting together with them.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I find great ebooks everywhere I look! Whether it is Smashwords, Amazon, Goodreads, newspapers, emails, websites, or the recommendations of friends and family, there is always something new for my ebook list!
What is your writing process?
Once I have an outline, there is only one process for me, and that is just to write and write and write. It's kind of light digital photography, I just shoot and shoot and shoot, and toss most of what I've taken, but at the end of the process there is something good. Once I've gotten rid of what I won't keep, I rewrite it until I think it is ready for an editor.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first book that I read as a child that left a huge impression on me, and which I still love today is "The Little House", by Virginia Lee Burton. It seems like a simple tale, but it is a story about love, belonging, nature, progress, and so many other things. It's a wonderful book that everyone should get a chance to read.
How do you approach cover design?
I like to meet with the designer with a few ideas in my mind about concepts and colors, but I'm still open to new ideas and directions.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I love the Kindle paper-white, but I also read on the Kindle app. on the iPad or just PDF's on the computer.
