Chronicles from Chateau Moines

BI: Today, I’m very happy to welcome Children’s and Young Adult writer, Evelyne Holingue. Evelyne, so nice to have you here. Let’s get the ball rolling by you telling us a bit about how you became a writer. When did you decide that’s what you wanted to be, and what steps did you take to prepare for a writing career? 

EH: When I was a child I was very shy and was afraid to talk to people. Books gave me the friends I longed to have without having to ask for anything. I learned almost everything from a book. I think that most people who love to read write also. I wrote when I was a kid. Poems mostly but also a short novel for my sister, completely inspired by the Famous Five, my favorite books when I was really young. I lived in a small town and had no idea how books were made and this was fascinating to me. By the time I moved to Paris as a student, I had decided to work in the publishing business. As soon as I started to work full time I wrote less. I wonder if I would have been writing had I stayed in France.  Read more…

It’s Author Interview day again, and today, I’d like to welcome Children’s Author, Stella Tarakson to Bookin’ It. Stella comes from a land down under, and it’s great to be able to connect with her today, via the marvels of technology. 

BI: Tell us a bit about how you became a writer. When did you decide that’s what you wanted to be, and what steps did you take to prepare for a writing career? 

ST: I’ve always wanted to write, but I approached it the long way round. I went to Law School, never dreaming I’d one day actually be able to pursue my dream. My wonderful husband encouraged me to ‘give up my day job’ and go for it. So far it’s worked. I’ve had about 35 non-fiction books published, but now I’m focusing on fiction, something I’ve wanted to do for ages.  Read more…

The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

My Rating: 4 of 5 Stars

Neil Gaiman says of himself, “I make things up and write them down.” What I say about him is that he does a darn fine job of it. At least he certainly does in The Graveyard Book. I read this book last year, and somehow Read more…

Quote #12 – Dr. Seuss

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You’re on your own, and you know what you know. And you are the guy who’ll decide where to go.”
