Fantasy Author Life Interview & Childhood Memories 🙂
Happy Friday Everyone!
I hope you guys have had a great week. Today I’m reminiscing over a fun interview with the lovely Lilian, over at Lilians Book Stuff. We did this interview quite a while ago at a fun Barnes & Noble book signing for The Labyrinth Wall and The Haunted Realm (the photo above is Lilian and I at the event). However, because I ended up taking a bit of a blogging break, it has taken far too long for me to share it with you all. Thank you so much again Lilian for the interview. Below is a short excerpt.
Fantasy Author Life Interview with Lilian:
Me: Can you tell me a little more about yourself and your books?
Emilyann: “My name is Emilyann and I’m the author of The Labyrinth Wall. It’s a, I think a really exciting story. It was really fun to write about a girl who was created in a labyrinth and she lives there and that’s her whole existence. She’s created as a servant there so that’s all she knows. But then she catches a guy walking through a wall into the labyrinth. She’s never seen anyone walk through a wall. He’s got special abilities. He’s different from everyone else there. For the first time she questions ‘Where did this guy come from?’ and she has to solve the mysteries of what else is out there. Her whole world has been shattered and she needs o figure out what’s actually going on.”
Me: “What books influenced you as a child?”
Emilyann: “As a child, oh my goodness, I loved so many books. If You Give A Mouse A Cookie, loved that. The Serendipity books, I don’t know if you.. yeah and that’s, you know, with the little pink dinosaur and there’s actually a book about serendipity. And then there’s a little cartoon that was made. I absolutely loved that. Anything whimsical, fantasy, you know, that I could escape to and imagine new things… I loved it.”
Childhood Memories & Book Inspirations:
Reading back over Lilian’s interview was so much fun. I really enjoyed our chat and it got me reminiscing over childhood memories and inspirations. So many things from childhood still inspire me today and in many ways I don’t really let go of them. I’m a big believer in never totally growing up (in the sense of not putting limitations on our imaginations). Scrolling through the Pinterest board below will give you some insight to a few nostalgic and inspirational things from childhood… maybe some will strike a cord with you.
Thanks for stopping by today! <3
