Hello and welcome to my blog, Author Interviews. My name is Fiona Mcvie.
Let’s get you introduced to everyone, shall we? Tell us your name. What is your age?

Fiona: When and why did you begin writing?
I began writing in 2010 to vent and express myself.
Fiona: When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I considered myself a writer after some friends and I started a facebook poetry group and I started collaborating with different poets.
Fiona: What inspired you to write your first book?
My first book was a poetry series I did. Many people thought it should be a book,so after careful thought and prayer, I decided to make it a book.
Fiona: How did you come up with the title?
It was the title of my series. My publisher added the word twisted to the mic because of all of the controversy within it.
Fiona: Do you have a specific writing style?
Is there anything about your style or genre that you find particularly challenging? I am very versatile in my style. The most challenging thing about my style is it is so broad it is hard to be specific unless I am collaborating.
Fiona: How much of the book is realistic and are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
I would say about 25 percent of my book is based on someone I know of events in my own life.

Before or during the process? I have not traveled to craft any of my works, but I would to.

Trust others in a relationship.
Fiona: Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
Who is your favorite writer, and what is it about their work that really strikes you? Janae Stewart is an awesome writer I follow. My favorite writer is Edgar Allen Poe. He was ahead of his time much like people say I am now.
Fiona: Outside of family members, name one entity that supported your commitment to become a published author.
Fiona: Do you see writing as a career?
I do see writing as a career.
Fiona: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
I would probably change the depth. I could have been more detailed in the characters.
Fiona: Did you learn anything during the writing of your recent book?
I learned how much energy it takes out of out of you to actually write a solid book from start to finish.
