Author Interview – Elyse Douglas @douglaselyse

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.
