Interview with Trixie Bloom

Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I like to think of myself as a funky, modern girl. I love to party. I never thought of myself as an Author, but that all seems to have changed. The characters in my comedy romance became so real in my dreams, I had to write them down.
My ramblings resulted in my first book, Facebook Blues. The ideas are now flooding in and I hope to continue being an 'Author'
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Facebook Blues. I was thinking about looking up your ex on Facebook, and what would happen if you took that a step further. Then I had a vivid dream which became the story that I couldn't write down quick enough.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Yes. The fact I'm actually writing is unusual in itself, for me.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
As a child I was transported and transfixed by the books of Enid Blyton. I've always been a fan of Jilly Cooper and Stephen King, and in recent years I've grown to love Stephen Fry's comedic style.
What are you working on now?
I'm hard at work writing the sequel to Facebook Blues - Twitter Me Pink.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
My website is trixiebloom.com, but I'm such a newbie I have yet to discover the best methods of promotion.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
I myself am a new author, and dont feel qualified to offer advice at this moment. All I can say is; Try to finish your project.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Go for it!
What are you reading now?
How to save your own Life by Erica Jong
The God Delusion by Richard Dawkins
Breakout by Nina Croft
What's next for you as a writer?
Conquer the world!
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
Folk of the Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton
Road Less Travelled by M. Scott Peck
Riders by Jilly Cooper
Hippopotamus by Stephen Fry
