Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Firstly, a full bladder, shortly followed by hunger pangs and a craving for warm rice and pickled gherkins (don't knock it until you've tried it). I can be utterly zombified physically first thing in the morning but can plonk into my chair and write beautifully for at least an hour or two. Around 3 in the afternoon a reversal sets in. My mind turns to porridge whereas my body wants to run a marathon. I believe it's called biorhythms or the rhythm method or something.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Running marathons.

  • Hemingway's Bed on April 10, 2011
    (no rating)
    Debra J. Rigas is one of those rare authors who can immerse you in a bath of words, and let you enjoy a long, hot, relaxing soak. I would call her a sensual writer in that every visual detail, every smell, every emotion washes over you as you read - observations that you always wanted to note but could never find the words for. This is a wonderful take on Hemmingway, the ideally rounded man and a life that so many of us still find captivating.
