Author Spotlight – Helen Krummenacker

Welcome!

1. When did you start writing?

I can’t remember a time I wasn’t writing. Even as a very small child, I wrote short stories and poems. They were just the sort of thing a child would write, of course, but I kept at it and kept getting more sophisticated. Then, in the 90s, after a couple of years of trying to go professional with it, I ran the numbers on how much it cost to buy paper, use the printer, and post my best works to magazines that paid half a cent per word and decided in disgust that if I couldn’t even break even, I should just write fanfic for my own amusement.

After years of neglecting my writing, my husband, Allan, decided he had some ideas he wanted to turn into a novel. He did the writing, but I helped out with planning, character development, scientific premises, even refining jokes. Still, I was skeptical of what could be done with the book, however good it was, and he researched the markets and changes in publishing deeply. It turned out that traditional publishing houses were starting to charge many authors fees, whereas vanity press had been replaced by the print-on-demand model, making it possible for an author to release a book widely and control their product. As the Para-Earth series, which I’d helped him on, continued, I got more involved in the writing itself.

I was inspired to write my first solo novel very recently. I struggled not to dive into it until I finished my last semester in college and then I went full steam ahead– the book, Forever’s Too Long, is being released less than six months after I started it, and I’m already 17,000 words into the sequel.

2. What motivates you to write?

Most people say write what you know, but I find I thrive when I write what I love. I like wise-cracking detectives, fantasy interacting with the real world, science fiction possibilities, the little frisson of terror when supernatural suspense takes a surprising turn. When I write the kinds of stories I love to read, with characters who I love– or love to hate– then writing is fun and I can hardly wait to fix a scene by getting the turns of phrases just right.

3. What genre do you write in and what made you chose this particular genre?

The Para-Earth stories are paranormal science fiction thrillers. The Forever Detective stories are tough-guy detective/occult mysteries. I love mysteries, science fiction, and fantasy, and combining them intelligently can allow twists to take the reader to unexpected places while keeping the flavor and frame of the foundation genre.

4. What is your goal in writing? Do you have dreams where your writing should take you?

I don’t really want to be famous, but I would love for my characters to be. I dream of seeing Forever’s Too Long made into a movie starring Oscar Isaac and Hayley Atwell. I don’t see myself getting really rich, but a contract for a movie might very well take care of a down payment on a condo around here. But I want a movie mostly so I can share this with the world, and make people smile and think and connect emotionally.
I also have a bit of a more serious goal. The characters I’m writing are often underrepresented, especially in the time frame they are written in. In 1947, my wise-cracking detective is partly Latino. His girlfriend is a divorcee who escaped an abusive marriage. His best friend is a clever autistic man. I want to expand who belongs in an old-fashioned detective story and how people visualize the past.

5. Do you ever suffer from writer’s block and if yes, how do you deal with it?

Yes! But not on what you’d expect. I do fine with fiction, jumping to a different scene if I need a little bit of freshness while I let something lie fallow a while. But I struggle with things like the About the Author or the back of the book blurb. I decided to let some of the cheekiness I’d given my protagonist/narrator carry over into my biography. I even brought it into my author photo

6. What advice would you like to give new, hopeful authors?

Love what you’re doing, or it isn’t worth it. You are going to be researching, writing, editing, marketing; some days you’ll spend hours and not get much done, other times you’ll be productive but have no one around to celebrate it with. You’re going to be writing instead of reading, instead of hanging out at game night… all the other things you like to do, you’ll have to reorganize to have time to write. So believe what you are writing is worth it.

7. Please, tell us about your work.

Forever’s Too Long, my first solo novel is set in New York City in 1947. Rafael Jones is a former police detective, recently released from the U.S. Army and starting his own business as a private investigator. He thinks of himself as a pretty ordinary guy, but Interpol thinks he’s just the man they need to get solid evidence on Russian art smugglers and murderers so they can get cooperation from the local authorities. Between that case and helping his businessman friend try to recover some promising personnel who resigned their jobs to join a cult, he’s off to a good start. What he doesn’t know is that neither case is as simple as it seems, and his investigations take him into conflict with supernatural danger, including an almost legendary historical figure with a dreadful secret.

It’s been compared to Phillip Marlowe, Kolchak: the Night Stalker, Agent Carter, and Harry Dresden. In spite of the scary parts, I think of it as an adventure tale rather than horror, because the story has just as much light– quips, friendship, romance, and kindness– as it has of danger, angst, and darkness.

I’m 17,000 words into the sequel and literally have a dozen Forever Detective novels at least sketched out in notes. I mention it because I know the heartbreak of getting emotionally invested in a series only to have the author turn their attention to something else. But I promise– I’m a fan of Rafael Jones and I won’t stop writing him as long as other people want to read him, too.

Thank you for being my guest. It was such a pleasure to have you here!!

Thank you! These are great questions and made it easy to open up.


About Helen:

Helen Krummenacker is uncomfortable talking about herself in the third person, so I won’t. I helped create the Para-Earth Series by Allan Krummenacker and Helen Krummenacker. I have a B.S. in Mathematics and hope that writing proofs has helped keep my fiction streamlined and avoid plot holes. Hobbies include gaming (tabletop/roleplaying), dancing, and painting. Health issues limit my activity level, but I manage to work as an accounting technician by day and escape into mystery and adventure genres at night. I’m allergic to garlic and sunlight, but I promise I don’t thirst for blood, just coffee and maybe a bit of bourbon.
Other books I have worked on are The Bridge, The Ship, The Vampyre Blogs: Coming Home, and The Vampyre Blogs: One Day at a Time.

Helen’s Novel: “Forever’s Too Long”

Excerpt:

“Very well.” She shrugged. “You are not making this easy on yourself. Seize him!” I expected to be rushed by the acolytes I’d seen, but four newcomers had joined them. I mentioned the gardeners looked pretty dirty. These four looked worse. I thought one looked like his face had a gangrenous patch. Smelled like it, too. Another was a woman, but although she was young, her eyes were filmed over with cataracts, and her skin was waxen as well as pale. She held a bag in her hands. Newcomer three was also female, and her fingers had lost the flesh covering the tips, revealing bone. The final one didn’t fit the pattern of most of the acolytes. He had a beard, was an older man, and wore regular but ragged clothes. He was bloated and had a pattern of dark veins on his nose.
Of course, this takes longer to describe than I took to notice them and quickly decide the way out wasn’t through the crowd. There was a side door on the left, and I took a side leap, pivoted, ran a couple of steps, and then dropped to the wooden floor in a slide to dodge Gangrene’s attempted tackle. I rose to my feet at the door and spun at the sound of footsteps to kick Vagrant in the gut hard enough to knock him on his tailbone. Fingertips had gotten tripped by one of the dopey acolytes. I couldn’t see Cataracts, though. I turned the door handle, hoping I wasn’t going into a dead end or worse, a closet.
The back of my neck prickled like someone was watching me who I couldn’t see, which was weird because I was still facing the center of the room. I yanked the door open as hard and fast as I could, and heard a thud above me. Cataracts fell to the floor. She’d been lurking over the doorway, somehow. No time to ponder, I spun and ran. There was a hallway with a little stairwell to the left. Upstairs might be good for fighting, but not for flight. Forward would take me back toward the courtyard, closer to the main entrance but also a place to encounter more weirdos. The right door would possibly be an alternate path to the kitchen area, which should be connected to a back way for tradesmen to bring deliveries. You repurpose a flop hotel for a cult; you still have a hotel layout.

Author Spotlight – Ann Chiappetta

Welcome!

1. When did you start writing?
I began writing as soon as I could read. I drew picture books first, then a diary, and wrote stories with other friends.

2. What motivates you to write?
I am motivated by a creative desire; I used to draw and center my creativity visually. After I lost my sight, I learned to focus on literary creativity.

3. What genre do you write in and what made you chose this particular genre?
I am a poet first; however, I write fiction and nonfiction, too. Writing short stories and essays challenge me the most. I am drawn to writing about the human condition and emotions.

4. What is your goal in writing? Do you have dreams where your writing should take you?
My goal since the printing of my first book in 2016 is to self-publish one book every two years, more frequently, if possible. I am very happy about being able to finally accomplish this goal. When I was younger and struggling with creating good writing, I never thought my words would ever be printed. Over time, as my work was included in journals and other magazines, I realized my dream would come true one day as long as I worked hard enough to achieve it.

5. Do you ever suffer from writer’s block and if yes, how do you deal with it?
Yes, I sometimes suffer from a form of it. For me, it is more like I have exhausted myself with a piece of writing and just need to set it on the back burner and allow it to percolate. I haven’t ever had a complete paralyzing form of writer’s block, though — I still write email, reviews, and other projects to keep this from happening. The muscle won’t shrink or cramp if it is stretched and used.

6. What advice would you like to give new, hopeful authors?
Read, write, then read and write some more. The writing muscle has to be developed over time and the investment of practice will pay off as long as the writer is consistent and purposeful. Only the lucky few actually land a traditional book deal. If you write well, have a great literary support system and dedicate yourself to improving the craft, people will notice and read your work. I save each and every email from folks who have read my books and send a note. This is what I love the most, those sincere and meaningful notes from readers.

Thank you for being my guest, Ann. It was a pleasure having you here.

WORDS OF LIFE: POEMS AND ESSAYS
C 2019 by Ann Chiappetta

Buyer’s link: Amazon

About the Book

In this new collection of poems, essays, and flash fiction, the author once again exhibits her ability to write about both the light and dark sides of life. There are numerous poems and stories about nature: its kindness, cruelty, and wonder. There are frank expressions of the sadness and frustration she felt at the progressive loss of her eyesight and a poem about the social isolation that disability can bring. Other pieces, though, sing of joys as diverse as family closeness, the love of dogs, the delights of scents, and the power of the muse. Just as in her first volume of poetry, Upwelling: Poems (2016), there is no fluff here. To read Ann Chiappetta’s works is to feel them deeply, appreciate them mightily, and remember them forever.

From the Introduction

While it is my hope that all the pieces in this book resonate with my readers, I have my favorites. Some of the poems have been previously published; all reflect what lies within. This volume is accented with a few photographs. As I lose the last vestiges of my vision, bringing a meaningful visual array to this collection seems imperative. Finally, dear reader, I want to share the prose that reflects the way I’ve lived my creative life.

If just one poem or essay resonates with you, I have accomplished the purpose. For a moment, as the eye reads and the brain interprets, the reader slips into the shoes of the writer. This is the true spirit of what it means to be creative, open, to offer the emotions in such a way as to give another person the opportunity to appreciate the writer’s experience with the words of life.

Author Spotlight – Helen & Lorri Carpenter

Welcome!

Thanks! We appreciate the opportunity!

Please introduce yourself.

We’re HL Carpenter, a mother/daughter duo. We write family-friendly fiction from our studios in Carpenter Country, a magical place that, like our stories, is unreal but not untrue.

 

1. When did you start writing?

Helen had fiction published when she was young and she began writing seriously when her job was downsized shortly after her kids left home. A few years later, Lorri decided she also wanted to get serious with her writing, and a partnership was born.

 

2. What motivates you to write?

Researchers might say what motivates us to write is momoamine oxidase A. When we sit down at our computers and jump into a story, mood elevating neurotransmitters fire up, activating our happiness gene. The hours disappear in a blur of joyful contentment.
That’s probably the real reason. We’re certainly not going to admit we write the stories we do because we’re…weird. So let’s just say we like creating worlds that are one twist of the dial away from the expected. Okay, we’re weird.

3. What genre do you write in and what made you chose this particular genre?

We’re multi-genre authors. Our works include fantasy, allegory, satire and mystery. We tend to get bored easily, so switching genres is a great way to keep the ideas and the words flowing. Another advantage is that there’s always something new to learn, because each genre has its own peculiarities.

4. What is your goal in writing? Do you have dreams where your writing should take you?

Our goals change. When we started writing, our goal was to finish a complete manuscript (an entire book, whee!).
When we achieved that, our goal became having an editor respond favorably to our query.
Once that happened, the goal shifted to getting published.
Now…hmmm…let’s see… Oh, yes! Reaching the bestseller list and having a book optioned for a movie is definitely a goal.
After that happens…well, we’ll create the next goal when we get there. 🙂

5. Do you ever suffer from writer’s block and if yes, how do you deal with it?

No, we are quite fortunate. We think that’s one of the benefits of writing with a partner.

6. What advice would you like to give new, hopeful authors?

If you have a story to tell, tell it.
Then put the manuscript in a drawer and go study authors whose books you love. Ask yourself what draws you to those stories. Write or type out passages that resonate with you. After a couple of months of immersing yourself in your favorite books, take your manuscript out of storage and read it with fresh eyes. Revise it based on what you’ve learned. Repeat the process at least once more.
And all the while, believe in the wisdom of Dr. Seuss. Oh, the places you’ll go.

7. Please tell us about your work.

Our books span genres, yet they all have signature similarities: a strong, practical, intelligent female protagonist, a steadfast friend or two with a sense of humor, and a supportive if exasperating family or family substitute. They’re all “clean” too. You won’t find explicit sex, violence, or language in our stories. We strive to create a world where readers of any age are welcome.

Thank you for being my guest. It was such a pleasure to have you here!!

Thank you for inviting us!

Author Spotlight – Butterfly Thomas

Welcome!

Please introduce yourself.
Greetings: my name is Butterfly Thomas

1. When did you start writing?
I started writing in middle school.

2. What motivates you to write?
When I write poetry, the motivation is an intense emotion I needs must express. When I write fiction it’s kinda when the ideas strike me.

3. What genre do you write in and what made you chose this particular genre?
My novel is an urban thriller and I think the idea came to me back when that was my favorite genre. Now, I have an idea for an urban fantasy book and this genre is my new favorite genre.

4. What is your goal in writing? Do you have dreams where your writing should take you?
My goal for my writing is for all my writing, including my poetry, to be world renown. I want everyone to get something from my writing.

5. Do you ever suffer from writer’s block and if yes, how do you deal with it?
Yes, leave it alone and read or listen to music. Basically switch my focus until I can get past the block.

6. What advice would you like to give new, hopeful authors?
Just write. Someone unintentionally gave me that advice and it allowed me to write my first novel in 2 months; though I’d been nursing the idea for 10 years.

7. Please, tell us about your work.
This particular book is an urban thriller. It’s about a young girl who has many obstacles to overcome. While she is facing her demons, her brothers are battling their own. It’s a race to see who will come out the other side.

Thank you for being my guest. It was such a pleasure to have you here!!
Thank you for the opportunity


Butterfly’s Bio:

Guten Tag everybody:
My name is Butterfly Thomas. I was born in Germany, but I wasn’t
there long enough to learn the language. I attempted to take in in
school, but when I went to the Virginia School for the Deaf and Blind
I had to take a foreign language they actually offered. I chose
Spanish, but of course I don’t remember much of that either. Anyway,
fast forward to now I am about to be 34 and this year signifies the
halfway point where I have been blind the same amount of years I have
been sighted.
My day job is a counselor and advocate for people with disabilities.

Author Spotlight – Welcome Back Darlene Foster

It is a very special pleasure for me to welcome you back on ‘Writer’s Treasure Chest’. In your former visits we learned about your writing, your writing process and asked for some advice. But there are so many more questions to ask!

Let’s see what you can tell us today:

1. Would you please describe your writer’s spot?

If you mean where I do my writing, it is usually in my office in my home in Spain. It’s the spare bedroom which we have turned into my office with a desk, computer and comfy office chair. I’m surrounded by books, magazines, a dictionary, thesaurus and other writer’s aids. Pictures of my family grace the walls. It is not a neat and tidy place but it works for me. I also hand write in the car (while hubby is driving, of course) on airplanes and sitting on my sunny terrace.

2. Is there a particular plan or schedule you follow with your writing?

I am a usually very organized person who loves to plan. But with my writing, I don’t have a plan or schedule, I’m a genuine panster. I write when I get time and when I get ideas. I create a mind map, basically with locations and characters, to help me stay on track but it doesn’t always help. It gets very messy by the time I’ve finished the book. I sound totally disorganized, it’s a wonder I ever get anything written!

3. Do you think writers often are ‘introverted’ people, preferring to be alone rather than in company?

Some writers are introverted I’m sure, but not me. I love being around people, am energized by them and get my ideas by being around a variety of folks. Meeting new people is always a treat for me. You learn so much from others. I find it difficult to be alone and get bored quickly.

4. Do you publicly speak or have readings, and if yes, do you have any advice for beginners?

This is my favourite part of being an author. It’s a great way to connect with readers. I write books for middle-grade children so I contact schools and libraries and ask if I can do a presentation and reading. Kids love being read to, especially by a real live author. I always leave time for questions and answers. It is amazing how clever the readers are and the great questions they ask. If I’m unable to answer the question, I’m honest and say I don’t know or would rather not answer the question. (Like “How old are you?”) I sometimes get an email address and offer to get back to them later. Besides schools and libraries, I’ve done presentations at senior’s homes, coffee shops, hospitals, service groups and whoever will listen to me. Interaction with readers is a good way to increase sales and get ideas. And it is fun!

5. There are so many scams out there for writers and upcoming authors. Did you ever have experience with any of it and do you have advice on how to not get trapped?

I have not been caught up in any scams but I know they are out there. Like everything, one needs to be vigilant.

6. Do you have a particular marketing strategy for your books?

I do some pre-publishing promotion through guest posts and other social media. Around publication time I always do a physical launch at a bookstore and then book other bookstores, library and school visits. I continue to market the series all year long. Networking, on social media or in person, is still the best way to market any product, including books.

7. Did you publish more of your work since your last visit here? If yes, please tell us about it.

I haven’t published another book since Amanda in New Mexico-Ghosts in the Wind. I have however completed Amanda in Holland-Missing in Action which will be released September 1, 2019 and is available for pre-order. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07L9LVK4J/

In this book, Amanda is in Holland to see the tulips with her best friend, Leah, travelling the canals of Amsterdam, visiting Anne Frank House, checking out windmills and a wooden shoe factory, and taking pictures of the flowers of Keukenhof Gardens. While she’s there, she is keen to find out what happened to her great uncle who never returned from WWII and was declared missing in action. What she doesn’t expect to find and fall in love with is Joey, an abandoned puppy. While trying to find a home for him, she meets Jan, a Dutch boy who offers to help, a suspicious gardener, a strange woman on a bicycle, and an overprotective goose named Gerald.

Readers can follow Amanda around the charming country of Holland, filled with colourful tulips, windmills, and more bicycles than can be imagined. Once again, intrepid traveller Amanda encounters danger and intrigue as she tries to solve more than one mystery in a foreign country.

Thank you for being my guest. It was such a pleasure to have you here!!

Thank you for having me as a guest once again. Your questions are always thought-provoking and fun to answer.

Author Spotlight – Ann Harrison-Barnes

 

Welcome!
Thanks for having me.

Please introduce yourself.
My name is Ann Harrison Barnes. I love writing fiction and have also written for many professional websites and freelance clients. Some of my hobbies include listening to music, podcasts, and audiobooks, spending time with my family and crocheting.

1. When did you start writing?
I started getting serious about my writing in 2003, although I dabbled in it since I was in about the fifth or sixth grade.

2. What motivates you to write?
Motivation and inspiration come in various ways, from something as simple as a snippet from a podcast or part of an episode from an old TV show to the windchimes out on my front porch and conversations with my characters.

3. What genre do you write in and what made you choose this particular genre?
I write mostly Christian mysteries, although my mysteries are turning into Christian thrillers. However, there are times when I throw in a romantic twist. I have published one children’s book and have two more that I’m working on.
The reason I write in genres like this is because I love to read Christian fiction and I love a good mystery. I often like to drift back to a time when life was simple by reading children’s books, so what better way to do this by writing them as well.

4. What is your goal in writing? Do you have dreams where your writing should take you?
My goal in writing is to share the message of God’s love through a simple, yet deep story. If I can touch the life of one person through my stories, then I know I’ve done my job.

5. Do you ever suffer from writer’s block and if yes, how do you deal with it?
Though I hate to admit it, I do have those moments when the muse refuses to talk to me. When I can’t think of what to write, I go outside and sit in the porch swing, if it’s warm enough, and let the windchimes, melodies within me and often times my characters talk to me. Sometimes, I have to do something else for awhile in order for the muse to take me by surprise.

6. What advice would you like to give new, hopeful authors?
If you have a story idea that’s been bugging you for a while, especially while you’re trying to sleep, don’t be afraid to put your butt in the chair and your hands on your keyboard and start typing whatever comes to mind onto the blank document before you. If handwriting is your thing, keep a notebook close by, so you can jot down little tidbits or story ideas that come to you. I don’t care what you write, just write something to start with. The more you write, the better you can hone your craft. I’m not saying you should write every day, although this process works for many authors, but write as often as you can. I also advise new authors to join writers’ groups or connect with other writers either online or locally. The support you get from your writing friends is valuable as your own writing improves.

7. Please, tell us about your work.
My full-length novel entitled A Journey of Faith, is about a young girl who has been plagued by vivid nightmares and a voice crying for help for the last sixteen years of her life. She takes a journey to discover what tragic accident she witnessed at the innocent age of twelve, so she can conquer her fear of climbing. Was this incident an accident or was it murder?
Stories Outside the Box is a collection of tails ranging from mystery, to stories filled with a bit of heavenly magic and more. One of the mysteries will take you into a twisted digital glitch.
Maggie’s Gravy Train Adventure, An Electric Eclectic Book is a charming little Fairy tail with a bit of mystery and adventure as you ride along with Maggie and her friends on a fun and exciting gravy train journey. The biscuit wheels roll seamlessly down a cookie track.
Inner Vision, An Electric Eclectic Book, is a Christian fiction novelette, with a bit of mystery, adventure and a little sweet romance thrown into the mix. Kelly wakes up in a strange hospital after what she’s been told is an operation. However, when she tries to get some information about the operation, no one can tell her anything, except for one doctor who searches through her medical history to find out why she lost her sight. She and her best friend Anna must go back to the scene of the accident, in order for her to learn how to use her Inner Vision.

Thank you for being my guest. It was such a pleasure to have you here!!
It was a pleasure being here, thanks again for having me.
