Interview with Heidi Claeyssen

What are you working on next?
I am currently working on Sea Witch (part 3 of the Sea Witch trilogy). I also have a few other short stories in the works.
Who are your favorite authors?
This is a hard question to answer. I like so many different types of stories. A few would be ( in no order) Neil Gaiman, Nora Roberts, Diana Gabaldon, Jasper Fforde, Paula Brackston, Elizabeth Kostova, Sherman Alexie, Jane Austen, Mark Twain, Elizabeth George Spears, and so many more that I can't think of right now.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I am an Assistant Store Manager at a large retailer. I also make and sell quilts in my free time.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I browse, I find a title that intrigues me, and I search genres.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I started with poetry actually. I still write now and then. My first story was about a vampire.
What is your writing process?
I wouldn't call it a process. An Idea hits me and I write about it until I can't say any more. Then I walk away from it. I come back and write some more. Some stories are short and I write them in one sitting. Some take much longer to tell.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I don't remember what story was first. I do remember always being able to turn to a book and escape into the world that it created. You can go anywhere in a book.
What do you read for pleasure?
Everything. I read multiple books at the same time. I try to keep genres different as to not get confused by story lines.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I have a basic nook. It was a gift. It goes everywhere with me.
Describe your desk
It is currently covered with stacks of books about witches.
