I am pleased to welcome the talented author Patti Fischer to my blog!
Patti’s first book, A Purrfect Love was released in ebook format this past October from The Wild Rose Press! It was a sweet and wonderful story that I really enjoyed!
Please tell us about your book.
Molly is a mischievous black Persian who’s bent on introducing her mistress, Marisa, to the next door hunk, Ben. Unfortunately, that means getting Marisa (and Molly herself) out on the ledge. Luckily, Ben is there to rescues them. Watch what happens as the sparks fly between Marisa and Ben. For Molly, it’s A Purrfect Love!
What inspired the story?
Umm…writer’s block. Seriously, I was working on finishing up another story and had a bad case of writer’s block so started a short one. I wrote a bunch of it in one day and finished it up in a matter of a day or two. Then I decided that the best place to submit it would be The Wild Rose Press. It’s like a dream come true!
Has it hit you yet that you are a published author now?
At times… Still, I think once I hold a real book in my hand, then it will sink in. lol
What is your favorite part of being a writer?
What do you hope readers get out of your books?
A fun tale that will make them smile.
Describe a typical day for you.
Work… Then come home and do my writerly stuff.
How long have you been a writer?
I started writing in 2003, but seriously since 2005.
Have you always wanted to be a writer?
It had been a dream, but never thought I had what it took.
Who are some of your writing influences?
Ah…good question. Linda Howard, Lori Foster, and Carrie Alexander.
What would you like to tell aspiring writers?
The most important step in writing is to finish it. You can’t sell something that isn’t finished.
Describe yourself in 3 words.
Boring old lady. 🙂 (Me: That is soooo not true!!!)
If you had a time capsule to be opened 50 years in the future, what would you put in it?
My Barbie dolls and some of my books.
Where can readers find you online?
Any questions for readers?
What do readers want to see in books now? Is there something missing?
