Smashwords Interview

What type of books do you enjoy reading?
I actually enjoy Science Fiction and Fantasy most when it comes to my own reading. My father also reads a lot of the same and exposed me to it at a young age, so I think that was a big influence. Mystery is another genre I loved when I was young, but other than Tony Hillerman novels I fell away from it for quite a while. Today, I'm looking at mysteries and Noir novels from across the spectrum and amazed by all the diversity, and also exploring ways to combine all my genre passions in my writing.
Do you remember the first story that made an impact on you?
My father read my sister and I THE HOBBIT and THE LORD OF THE RINGS as bedtime stories when we were relatively young. From those books, I learned not only a thirst for adventure, but a real desire to try and build a detailed world when I do my own writing. I completely admire the depth of the storyline Tolkien wove and how it all comes together.

Smashwords book reviews by Shannon Muir

  • That Mama is a Grouch on Nov. 24, 2011

    I do not have children yet myself, but have worked in the business of children's entertainment and love reading. Sherry Ellis and her sense if music and rhyme as a musician come out nicely in this effectively told story. Most of the pages are full size illustrations. However about two thirds of the way through there are a couple pages where art filled the top half of the page and the lower is all white - it was slightly jarring. The art is fairly good quality overall, despite this minor note.
