An Interview with Author Susan Srikant!

Today, I'll be interviewing Middle Grade author Susan Srikant! Susan has written three adventure stories so far, but she doesn't just write novels; she also writes plays based on fairy tales for kids to perform! You can connect with her on Facebook and Goodreads.

Over to you, Susan!


First, tell us a bit about yourself.

I live in Illinois in the USA in a town where there is a university and a lot of corn fields and some cows.  I enjoy playing all kinds of sports, especially volleyball and basketball.  I love to hear from my readers!

What books have you written, and what genre are they?

I have written several middle grade books.  I wrote "The Remedy" about a girl who has an adventure in a mystical forest.  I also wrote "The Secret Room of Kaatu Temple" about two sisters who visit relatives in India and have to outsmart a thief.  I also wrote several plays for kids to perform as part of the ShowBiz Series.


What ages are your books for?

My books are for ages 7 and up.

Where do you get your inspiration from?

I get my inspiration from my own adventures. :-) 


How did you come up with your characters?

My characters are usually made up from different traits of people I meet.  Sometimes I think about the characteristics that I want my characters to have and then they just take on a life of their own!


When did you first start writing?

When I was a teenager, I used to like to write songs.  It wasn't until much later that I started writing books.

Where do you like to write?

I usually write at my dining room table.

What are some of your favorite books?

I like "Gone With the Wind" and Joan Lowery Nixon mysteries.  I also like Cornelia Funke's books.

Do you have any advice for up-and-coming authors?

Just keep writing.  Work on something for a while and then leave it and come back to it later with a fresh view.  Have fun with your story!


Thanks for chatting with me today, Susan!
