Name Genevieve Scholl
Where are you from New York State
A little about your self `ie your education Family life etc
I’m just a small town girl with a heart for the country life. I’m very shy and pretty much a loner, but my writing helps me be more outgoing and talk to various people that I would otherwise have a hard time approaching. I don’t write for the money or the fame, but rather to tell a story that needs to be told; whether that is my story or a character’s story. As a lot of people know, from my various interviews, I started writing to express my anger and hurt over the bullying that I experienced in High School, but eventually I just realized that I loved to tell stories. I was born in Texas, grew up and still live in Upstate New York, and want to retire in Ireland.
Fiona: Tell us your latest news?
My newest book, Novel Desire, was released!
Fiona: When and why did you begin writing?
Junior Year of High School.. I was bullied and writing helped me heal.
Fiona: When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I still don’t, honestly. I just do what I love and share it with the world.
Fiona: What inspired you to write your first book?
I wanted to be a cop, but certain things made it impossible.
Fiona: Do you have a specific writing style?
No really… I just go with the flow.
Fiona: How did you come up with the title?
Novel Desire was easy because my main character wrote a love spell in her new book. Plain and simple.
Fiona: Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
Mostly… Don’t judge a person by their cover.
Fiona: How much of the book is realistic?
A lot, but I won’t give specifics because not only will that be invading people’s privacies, but it will ruin the story!
Fiona: Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
In this particular book, yes, but not all of my books are that way.
Fiona: What books have influenced your life most?
All of them!
Fiona: If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?
Fiona: What book are you reading now?
Flashes of Me by Cynthia Sax and Living Again by L.L Collins
Fiona: Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
Fiona: What are your current projects?
I am working on my next book, Average Joe, that I hope to release in May. Also, I am co-authoring a book with a friend, but it’s all a little hush hush right now.
Fiona: Name one entity that you feel supported you, outside of family members.
My readers. They keep me going.
Fiona: Do you see writing as a career?
Yes and no. I would love to be able to write full time, but I think I’d also go nuts if I couldn’t do everything else I do.
Fiona: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
Yes, but only to make it longer and enjoy the characters a lot longer.
Fiona: Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
Not really. I’ve always written, even when I was young and wrote about bunnies getting married and such.
Fiona: Can you share a little of your current work with us?
She wrote a plot, that she never expected to come true.
David Wilkinson, the head jock of her High School, walked into one of her book signings and he not only read her book, but wants to know if it’s based on him. Vivienne Miles doesn’t know what to say. What would he say when he found out that she has had a crush on him since eighth grade?
When Viv finds out that she accidentally wrote a love spell in her book and it was activated on David, she worries that his feelings aren’t real. So now, she has to find a way to break the spell and find out his true feelings… before her heart falls in love and shatters.
