Interview with Vivian Gale

What do you read for pleasure?
For pleasure I read books of the Spiritual and Metaphysical nature. I enjoy self help. I'm always focused on Personal Freedom, which has become my mantra for life.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up until age 5 in the inner city; after that we moved to the country and I loved it there. I saw morning glories the first morning and they were so beautiful I thought I'd gone to heaven. Prior to the city, the only flower I ever saw were the sunflowers that grew in the cracks of the broken sidewalks. Nature, staying connected to nature influences me.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story behind this book is my personal battle with HS, Hidradenitis Suppurativa.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Becoming an Indie Author was an easy choice after investigating main stream publishing. You get to keep your work how you want it and their are other benefits too, but this was the biggest one for me.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Helping Others~
What do your fans mean to you?
That I am doing something right and good with my talents and life.
Who are your favorite authors?
Wayne Dyer, Earnest Holmes, L. Ron Hubbard, Maya Angelo
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I'm enticed by what new challenges and experiences that await me. No matter what I'm faced with, I make the best of my day and life.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading, music production, playing my guitar, going out with my Randy; he's teaching me how have fun.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Usually they are mentioned by other books I read, or free.
What is your writing process?
I just let it flow, when it flows. At times I am deliberate about it. When I feel like I have to write, it makes me not want to write. When I remember the gift and privileged of being inside your minds, I think of it as what I get to do. That keeps the Love in it for me. I never have writers block. I just need a break sometimes.

Secondly, I keep a folder on my computer entitled, "Books in Progress." When thoughts come to me I go to the appropriate book and add thoughts there, until it's ready to be fully born.
Describe your desk
My desk is pretty orderly, but my office is always in a lived in state as it also serves as my sewing room, my recording/music room etc. Normally I don't like to go in there because everything is calling me to do something with it. Luckily, I can take my laptop with me where ever I am am write.
