Esther Krivda


Esther Krivda has acted; studied ballet; worked as an admin in the movie studios in LA and in a talent agency in NYC; and loves to sing and draw faces. But she didn't discover writing til she took a course in Stop Motion Animation and soon found out her movie would need a script. And that’s when she got the idea of a little girl who cries out but only the man-in-the-moon hears her. She never turned the idea into a Stop Motion Animation movie but she did turn it into this novel, her first.

Smashwords Interview

Who is your ideal reader?
A member in good standing of The Long Book Society!! Hey, you don't even have to be in good standing; you could have missed every last meeting. But you know you're one of us. You tarzan through the all-that-glitters into the vast-shadowy-understory. Because that's where the gold is. But only we know that. So page after page we go because there we'll have a good laugh; there we'll meet more crazy-mixed-up characters than we knew even existed in this world; there, finally, we'll understand society (well, at least, in my long book you will; I can't speak to all those other long books, like 'War and Peace', and 'Les Miserables' and stuff); and we'll even cry ourselves to sleep but wake up all sunny again because those tears we cried the night before were magic tears. You see, all those words our eyes encountered on all those many many pages contained in them nothing less than just what we and our sore-and-sorry-souls needed to hear. So, yes, read my long book 'Where the What If Roams and the Moon is Louis Armstrong' and all will be right in your world.
Who are your favorite writers?
Charles Dickens, Roald Dahl, J.K. Rowling, Neil Gaiman, Wilkie Collins, Mark Helprin, Michel Faber, Leo Tolstoy.
