Today we have author Nely Cab on our blog, I was lucky enough for Nely to answer some of my questions. So, enjoy the interview....
Nely Cab author of Creatura
What or who inspired you to become a writer?
I honestly just wanted to write stories. But looking back, I found inspiration in Judy Blume’s “Are you there God? It’s me Margaret.” I loved (love) that book!
What was the hardest part about writing your book?
The hardest part was coming up with the plot and the dialogue for each character.
What was your favourite chapter to write and why?
Chapter 9 because it’s told from David’s point of view. I think that’s where the reader truly understands what David is feeling for Isis.
Do you ever experience writers block?
Yes, I do. I try to overcome it by reading a book, listening to music and not placing so much emphasis on the fact that I’m not able to write then. I find that when the words are ready, they will come.
What is the last book you read?
I actually read a manuscript of “Destiny Awaits” by Jaidis Shaw, due for release early this summer. Currently, I’m reading “Pandora’s Box” by Gracen Miller.
If you could trade places with any other person for a week, famous or not famous, living or dead, real or fictional. with whom would it be?
I would trade places with Albert Einstein (before the A-Bomb) because I’ve always wanted to know what a genius thinks about on their ‘down” time, or is their mind always working? And to simply to have all that knowledge in your head in one fraction of a second would be amazing.
What do you like to do when your not writing?
I like to catch up on episodes of “The Vampire Diaries”, draw, craft, shop and sleep.
Is anything in your book based on real life experiences or purely all imagination?
It’s all imagination and some of it – David – was taken from my dreams.
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Rainbow Bright, a teacher, a scientist, an artist and a writer. I couldn’t make up my mind.
Is there anything you’d like to say to your readers and fans?
I’d like to than them for their support and their interest in the “Creatura” Series, and I hope that they will be patient with me as I write “Vivus” for them.
What’s your favorite sinful dessert?
Chocolate Molten Cake with Ice Cream, whipped cream and fresh fruit.
Favorite part of the day?
Coffee breaks time!
Dogs or Cats?
Neither. I’m allergic.
George Clooney, Brad Pitt or Aussie hunk Hugh Jackman?
Hugh all the way!
Favourite Disney movie?
I have several: All the princess movies and Pirates of the Caribbean. Johnny Depp is my favorite actor!
