Interview Sarah MorgenthalerInterview

Sarah

Een tijdje terug las ik de grappige feelgood roman Droomvakantie van Sarah Morgenthaler, het tweede deel Droomman verschijnt in maart en ga ik ook lezen en recenseren .
Ik mocht Sarah Morgenthaler wat vragen stellen over het boek voor mijn blog.

Hello Sarah,

Your book, The tourist attraction, made me smile a lot and I enjoyed reading it, I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
I hope you have time for an interview on my Dutch bookblog https://ConniesBoekenblog.nl

Here are the questions in case you want to do the interview.

• The Tourist attraction is the first part of a series, can you describe the series using only 5 keywords?

Sweet fun Alaskan armchair vacations

• If the book were to be adapted to a movie, who would you like to play Graham and Zoey?

Graham has a lot in common with Luke from Gilmore Girls, so I’d love an actor who is similar to a young Luke. I think Anna Kendrick would make a great Zoey.

Some short questions, for the readers to get to know you a little bit better:
• Tea or coffee?

Unsweetened iced tea is my favorite drink!

• Is there an author that you want to meet?

There are so many! I’d especially love to meet Nora Roberts.

• Cat or dog?

I love all animals, but dogs are my favorite.

• What are your favorite books?

I read in a lot of different genres, but my favorites are romance, sci-fi/fantasy, and non-fiction adventure stories.

• Paper books or ebooks?

Definitely paper books. As a writer, I end up staring at computer screens all day, which is hard on my eyes.

• What is your favorite movie based on a book?

The Lord of The Rings movies based on the books by Tolkien.

• Chocolate or ice creams?

Dark chocolate

• What’s your favorite season?

Fall

• Bookmark or folding the pages?

Actually, I don’t do either. I usually remember what chapter I stopped reading at.

• What is your favorite childhood book?

There are so many to choose from! I especially loved The Dark Is Rising series by Susan Cooper

• What are you currently reading?

The Girl With Stars In Her Eyes by Xio Axelrod. It is SO good!

• Can you describe Graham and Zoey in 5 keywords?

Graham: Grumpy, Alaskan, dog-loving, diner owner

Zoey: Sunshiny, excited, adventurous, bookworm, tourist

• Which character, besides Graham or Zoey, did you enjoy writing about? And are there characters in the books that are based on real people?

I had so much fun writing the moose Ulysses and also Jake the dog. Those two were my favorites! Ulysses is similar in personality to a horse I used to have, and Jake was the name of a family member’s border collie.

• Did you intend from the start to write a series?

I knew that my publisher would want at least three books in Moose Springs, so I tried to write strong, engaging side characters who could hold their own stories in a series.

• Why did you choose a small town in Alaska as a setting for the books in this series?

I was on a research trip to Anchorage for a different book I was working on. A friend and I went on some tourist activities in small towns, and I was hooked on the setting of small-town Alaska!

• Are you already writing/planning a new book? And if so can you tell something about that.

I’m currently working on the fourth book in the Moose Springs, Alaska series. It’s an enemies-to-lovers romcom about one of Graham’s best friends, helicopter pilot Ashtyn Lockett.

• Did you have a complete plan before writing the book / series and was everything thought out before you started to write? Or did the story developed itself while writing?

I only plan out a couple key points that will happen in a book, and sometimes I don’t even plan that far in advance. It’s more fun for me to not know what I’m going to type when I sit down at the keyboard.

• How do you come up with the hilarious events in the book, and the funny habits of the characters in the books?

I try to take from real life experiences that I thought were amusing, and then I expand on those if possible. Also, if I’m smiling or giggling as I write the scene, I know it’s on the right track.

Thank you for the interview.

Thank you for interviewing me! These were great questions! 🙂
