Interview with Author Patricia Moore

Today we speak with children’s author Patricia Moore. She is the author of Latoya’s Downton Day, which I reviewed in my last post. Check out what she has to say.

Welcome to my Blog, Patricia. Thank you for stopping by. Let’s get started.

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

PM: After listening to a children’s author at my local library, I thought I could write a book for children. I left encouraged after his talk.

How long have you been writing professionally?

PM : 3.5 years

What does your writing schedule look like?

  PM : write at night when my house is fairly quiet.

What are your favorite books to read?

PM : I have read Gone With The Wind twice already and To Kill A mocking Bird twice. Both I really enjoyed reading.

What have you found to be the most difficult thing about writing? 

PM : It seems like there are so many people who are writers and I think my work may not be all that important.

What have you found to be the most rewarding?

PM : I really enjoy getting a positive review, especially from a blogger.

What advice to you have for aspiring authors?

PM : Read, read, read alot in the genre you want to write in. To be a good writer, you need to read a lot of books in your chosen genre. If possible, join a critique group. I don’t know where I would be with my writing without my critique group!

What publications do you have out now?

PM : First Winter, Just A Servant, The Angel With One Wing, and LaToya’s Downtown Day.

Do you have an upcoming release? If so, tell us about it.

PM : My newest release is La Toya’s Downtown Day. This book is close to my heart. LaToya is a girl who lives in the projects of Chicago. She longs to go on her first trip to downtown. Her mother and her have adventures when they are finally able to go downtown. I have memories of going downtown with my mom when I was a child. I enjoyed our time together.
