Author Interview

Name/Penname & a little about yourself:
Sondra Hicks, I reside in Olympia, Washington and it is also known as the rainy state. I enjoy designing book covers (Lelene Designs) for fun and for work aside from writing. I am married and have four beautiful children.

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
I realized I wanted to be a writer when I was a teenager when I put together my first book of poetry or notebook I should say. I still have it somewhere as a keepsake that dreams do come true.

What genre are your books and what made you write that genre?
I find most of my books are in the Paranormal area but I have been known to publish and write poetry, humor, space opera and even romance. I have a rather large love for Vampires which dates back to me being a child and the movies and books I read and watched. R.L. Stine and Christopher Pike captivated me with their writing and my dreams were hatched from there.

When did you write your first book and how old were you?
I believe I was 13 years old when I began writing poetry but I didn’t publish my first book until June 11th, 2003 and I was 22 years old then and it was called My Minds Escape. It was a poetry book handled by 1st Books which is now Author House and I got swindled. I didn’t publish again until 10 years later.

Where do you get your ideas for your books?
My ideas believe it or not are not influenced by modern day television or books. I am 100% original in my ideas in my work. I was always a child with a vast imagination. I was always off in my own world. I had to be as I spent time in a foster home and a group home that were abusive and it was my escape. So some of my ideas come from my life as it’s been a long hard road as I was also a victim of domestic violence. I am a survivor now so I like a lot of my female leads to be strong if possible but I also know what it takes to break a person.

How long does it typically take you to write a book?
Typically, in the beginning, it took me 6 months to write a book but it has been getting better as my writing has been improving since I now have a team of amazing editors and I am signed to Wild Dreams Publishing.

How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
All honestly after 7 books, I lost count but my favorite is the Kloe & Gavin Adventures as a whole.

Do you ever suffer from writer’s block? How do you overcome it?
Writer’s block can be an issue but I overcome by working on more than one project at a time so if I stop on one I can move to the next so I never stop writing.

Have you done any collaborations with other authors?
I have done anthologies with other authors and even run my own anthologies under Lelene Anthologies. I am planning to release a book with a new author at the end of the year if all goes right. It will be his first book and he is a close friend of mine. I have approached a few other authors about potential collaborations but we will see what’s in the cards.

What do you think of reviews?
Reviews to me are essential they tell a potential reader whether to buy a book or not. Reviews also help an author to find things they can work on in future books or to even fix in a published book. The review system is and always will be the best form of communication between readers and authors when a book is on the market.
