Q&A with Viv Drewa, one of the Midnight Oil Anthology Authors

Inquiring minds want to know what makes you tick. Tell us about your life.

I love to write and have since I was 9 years old. Since I haven’t worked since 2013 and had two mini strokes my doctor told me to do something to keep my mind working. He said writing would be great.

I love owls and use them in my books, except for this one.

What was your life like before you became a writer, and how did you get your start as an author?

I had an accident that put me on disability. Since I had the time I was able to pursue my love of writing

Tell us about your writing process. Are you a pantser, a plotter, or something else?

I’m a Planster I start out with a plot and outline then my writing just takes off on its own.

Do you have a favorite writing project or a book that still haunts your dreams that you would like to share?

I loved writing “The Owl of the Sipan Lord” I spent six weeks doing research for it.

Tell us a little about your story in the Midnight Oil Anthology. 

It’s a story about a man who only cares for himself.

Teaser: A long-distance romance brings two people together, but after being ignored for a time Edana leaves. But does Charlie regret ignoring her?

Do you have works in progress?

I have three in the works. I will have one done by the end of August and the other two by the end of the year.

What are your plans for your next book?

I’m writing a series, Joe Leverette Mysteries, and I plan on plotting out the third book.

Do you have an especially interesting research experience to share?

Several really. For “The Owl of the Sipan Lord” I contacted a well-known archaeologist because I couldn’t find what I needed and he got back with me in one week. The other “Midnight Owl: Joe Leverette Mystery, Book 1” I contacted our local ME about the murder to see if it was feasible.

How to you stay in touch with your muse?

Sometimes I have to give her a good kick in the butt!

What do you think has contributed the most to your writing style?

I just do my thing.

Today’s Midnight Oil Anthology Interview is with Freya LeCrow!

Q&A with Midnight Oil Anthology author, Freya LeCrow

  1. Inquiring minds want to know what makes you tick. Tell us about your life. My life pretty much revolves around my family.  I am a mother of three kids and it gets crazy at times. Late at night is writing time for me.
  2. What was your life like before you became a writer, and how did you get your start as an author? I don’t think I had a life before I became a writer.  I started writing at a very young age and kept writing. It is part of who I am.

  3. Tell us about your writing process. Are you a pantser, a plotter, or something else? Pantser, I have never been great about plotting and brain storming.  

  4. Do you have a favorite writing project or a book that still haunts your dreams that you would like to share? I can’t think of one.
  5. Tell us a little about your story in the Midnight Oil Anthology.  My story is about a young woman who walks into a gallery and find a painting of herself as a young girl, but the painting is 100 years old.  She later finds out from her father that the family is cursed.

  6. Do you have works in progress? I have a few, but not currently writing much.

  7. What are your plans for your next book? Shh it’s a secret, even to me.  LOL

  8. Do you have an especially interesting research experience to share? I just kind of run around like a chicken with my head cut off.  Though I do use goggle earth for the locations I have never been to.

  9. How to you stay in touch with your muse? I think mine got lost someplace, if you see her send her back.

  10. What do you think has contributed the most to your writing style? Reading!!!  I love to read and that has helped me to find my style.
