Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects?
Both: Elyse Douglas will publish two Christmas books in September: The Christmas Diary and Christmas Ever After. Both stories are about strong women who need a little Christmas magic to uncover the secrets of their hearts.
What inspired you to want to become a writer?
Doug: The love of reading, listening to and telling stories. One of the best story tellers I ever met was a janitor I worked with one summer when I was in college. The other great story teller was my paternal grandfather, Pappy. He was the grandson of Uncle Johnny Shell, who I wrote about in my blog “My 134-Year-Old Kentucky ‘Uncle’”.
Elyse: As long as I can remember, I’ve kept journals and written poems. Writing novels is a more recent adventure.
Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published.
Both: Some very favorable unsolicited reviews, both for The Astrologer’s Daughter and our other novel, Wanting Rita.
If you could jump into a book, and live in that world, which would it be?
Doug: Any story that has an extravagant beach house, with lots of sand, sea and brazen sun in a broad blue sky. Then whatever villain came my way I could take him/her down.
Elyse: A world in which soul mates search for and discover each other… preferably in a beach location!
What is your dream cast for your book?
Both: Charlize Theron and Leonardo DiCaprio.
What was your favorite book when you were a child/teen?
Elyse: I absolutely loved Little Womenand wanted to be like Jo. Since I’ve been working with children as a speech-language pathologist, my favorite children’s book is The Pop-up Mice of Mr. Brice by Theo. LeSieg, illustrated by Roy McKie. Every child I know wants to read it over and over and over again.
Doug: Lad a Dog.
