An Author Interview with Paige E. Roberts

An interview with Paige E. Roberts

What was your childhood ambition?

My greatest ambition from about the age of 11 when I started my first novel was to be a writer, but for many years, I let the world convince me that it was an unrealistic ambition.  I pursued other things, but eventually came back to what I loved most.  I now make my living as a “technical content developer” which is a fancy way to say, I write, and do multi-media and web projects to go with what I write.  My day job combines my love of art, of people, and of writing.  And, at the end of the day, when I want to do something just for the joy of it, I write fiction.

What ambitions do you still have?

My ambition is still to be a writer.  I’d like to publish a bunch more mainstream fiction, make enough money to quit my day job, and go to book signings every weekend. Continue reading

Author Interview with Alcamia Payne

Interview with Alcamia Payne

What was your childhood ambition?

To be a writer and inspire other people with words.

What ambitions do you still have?

To follow my dream and to just keep improving as a writer, penning stories which open people up emotionally, mentally and spiritually.  If one of my stories makes someone smile or inspires them to change or look at the world a bit differently, I’ll feel I’ve really achieved something!

Author Interview with Beverley Langland

Author Interview with Beverly Langland

What was your childhood ambition?

To become an astronaut. I was at the perfect age for the excitement of the race into space to capture my young imagination. I remember staying up all night to watch the moon landing with my parents and afterwards making plastic models of the Apollo launcher and the Eagle landing craft. It’s a shame that such excitement has gone from the world, with trips into space now reported as an afterthought. Needless to say, the Welsh space program was severely limited, thwarting my ambition. The closest I achieved was to become an aerospace engineer. Still, the excitement fuelled my hunger for SF stories and reading in general.

What was your first job?

Other than paper and milk rounds, my first official job was climbing into lofts and attics to clear out old fibreglass lagging and replacing it with new insulation. Not long before at school, I had learned of the dreadful conditions children used to work under in the Victorian era. I remember thinking as I suffered in the sweltering heat within the coveralls and rubber gloves and mask with my eyes turning blotchy red that little had changed. I realized then that I should have paid more attention at school! Continue reading

Author Interview with Eleanor Powell

Interview with Eleanor Powell

What was your childhood ambition?

I wanted to be a writer. This ambition was fuelled by my teacher who wrote on my school report – that ‘Eva has an individual way of expressing herself.’

I had no idea about genres at that time – I just wanted to be a writer.

On my eleventh birthday I had a poem published in our Saturday night newspaper. They paid me 5/- for it – about 25p, that was not bad considering it was sixty years ago.

What ambitions do you still have?

Now at age seventy, I would like to go back to Public Speaking. I qualified as a CTM (Competent Toast Master) in 1983. My ambition is to be a sought after Public Speaker and Writer and travel the world offering seminars and workshops on such subjects as Self Help – the Law of Attraction and Tapping. Continue reading
