Deep In The Meadows Author Interview

Today I am so excited to share an interview with Lisa Cronkhite, author of DEEP IN THE MEADOWS.  I enjoy getting to know a little bit about authors, I always feel it gives me an edge when reading their books, like I know something that others don’t.  :)


Here’s our little Q & A session:

C:  Why did you begin writing?  

L:  To shed light on mental illness.

C:  What process do you use when beginning a book?  (Storyboard, just sit and write, outline, etc)

L:  I just sit and write it out. Yes, I think of it beforehand, but the guts of it comes out in the writing.

C:  Is there a character that you’ve created that you have a special bond with or that you can really relate to?

L:  Yes, My Milly/Amelia character in Disconnected. She suffers from a split personality and with the mental illness I suffer from, I       think that best relates to it.

C:  If you weren’t writing, what would you be doing?

L:  Walking my dog, listening to music, hanging out with my family.

C:  Aside from writing, what other talents or special gifts do you have?

L:  I can draw and paint pretty good.

C:  Which characters are the most fun to create, good or evil?

L:  The ones that have a lot of spunk and energy and a great outlook on life.

C:  If you could be any character from a book, who would you choose?

L:  Definitely, Blake Stone. He’s the greatest. He’s a strong person, he accepts things gracefully and fully understands there is a reason for everything.

C:  Puppies or kitties?


C:  Chocolate or vanilla?

L:  Chocolate!

That’s it folks!  Thank you, Lisa, for taking the time to give us all a little glimpse at you!  :)
