Name – Louise Bay

Age – I’ve stopped counting

Where are you from – London


Fiona: When did you first consider yourself a writer?

I’m not sure I do!


Fiona: What inspired you to write your first book?

I had some time on my hands and I wanted a cheap hobby. I set myself the challenge of writing a book!


Fiona: Do you have a specific writing style?

Hmmmm? I don’t know. You tell me!


Fiona: How did you come up with the title?

Different titles come to me in different ways depending on what’s going on in the book. A Week in New York was a simple description!


Fiona: How much of the book is realistic?

That’s for the readers to decide!


Fiona: Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?

The odd line or personality trait might be inspired by real life but the characters soon take over.


Fiona: What book are you reading now?

Captivated by You. I’m a bit late!


Fiona: Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?

I love Jessica Hawkins, Tarryn Fisher, Karen Booth and of course Christina Lauren.


Fiona: What are your current projects?

I’m working on another three part novella series.


Fiona: Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of family members.

Bloggers, authors and readers have all been very supportive.


Fiona: Do you see writing as a career?

Not at the moment.


Fiona: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?

I don’t think so.

 

Fiona: Can you share a little of your current work with us?

I’m working on another three part novella series.


Fiona: Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

Sometimes I just need to get out of my head and stop worrying…


Fiona: Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

It’s an impossible question to answer. I have many authors I love. I like a great love story with a happy ending.


Fiona: Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)?

Not so far.


Fiona: Who designed the covers?

Najla Qamber


Fiona: Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?

I learn huge amounts from writing every book.


Fiona: Do you have any advice for other writers?

Just write. And write some more. Stop analyzing and write some more. And work with a good editor – you get better like that.


Fiona: Do you remember the first book you read?

No but my favorite book as a child was a book called Tony’s Hard Work Day.

Fiona: What makes you laugh/cry?

Fiona: Is there one person pass or present you would meet and why?

I’d love to meet Bill Clinton and see if he’s as charming in the flesh as everyone says he is.

 

Fiona: What do you want written on your head stone and why ?

I’ll be dead so whatever those who survive me want to put on there!

 

Fiona: Other than writing do you have any hobbies ?

I love to go to the theatre and art galleries.

 

Fiona: What TV shows/films do you enjoy watching?

I love Scandal, Nashville, The Good Wife, The Newsroom Buffy The Vampire Slayer and my all-time favorite is The West Wing.

I saw Interstellar most recently at the cinema. It was amazing but exhausting to watch – it’s so emotional.

 

Fiona: Favorite foods / Colors/ Music

I love Prince, Taylor Swift, Jill Scott.

My favorite food is eggs.

 

Fiona: If you were not a writer what else would you like to have done?

I’m a lawyer by day.
