Interview with Sandra Thompson

Published 2014-09-13.
What are you working on next?
Re-writing my first short story, which will be released later this year.
Who are your favorite authors?
Stephen King, Frederick Forsyth and Michael Crighton.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Life and the challenges that come with it. Every single day is a new adventure.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Taking photographs, hiking. I live in Colorado so I have plenty of opportunity to do both. I also love to travel, read, cook and discover new wines.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
Usually recommendations, but I look for new releases by my favorite authors.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes I do. I was twelve years old, it was 300 pages long. The story was about love, life and disaster. It ended in a crash on the London Underground.
What is your writing process?
I sit down and at my laptop and let the story flow through my fingers. My over active imagination takes care of the rest.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I ever read was called 'Sold for Silver', but I can't remember who wrote it. It was a powerful story and may have been what inspired me to write.
What do you read for pleasure?
Stephen King
What is your e-reading device of choice?
What book marketing techniques have been most effective for you?
Blogging and word of mouth. It is very difficult to make time for marketing so I'd love to retire and make writing my full time career. One day!
