Author Interview – SK McClafferty

at 2:45 AM

Q.  How often do I write and when? 

A.  I am a major procrastinator when it comes to creative writing, so I tend to shove it back to the end of the day.  Evenings are quieter than daytime where I am.  The phone is unlikely to ring, and I can relax, and just work.  I have a notebook computer, so I am usually curled up on an armchair, in my office, or in the living room, a dog beside me.  I like to sit by a window, so I can sort of be outside without actually being there.

Q.  What color best represents my personality.

A.  Tomato-red.

Q.  How do I feel about Facebook/Twitter?

A.  I am a recovering Anti-social Personality.  Introvert/Cynic.  Facebook is better for me than Twitter because you get more of a person there.  Twitter feels like a running, non-stop advertisement.  Talking heads.  Not thrilled with it, but I am forcing myself to participate.

Q.  What would I love to produce in my life?

A.  Peace of mind.

Q.  If you could study any subject at University, what would it be?

A.  Psychology/Criminology   The mind interests me.  The criminal mind fascinates me.

Q.  Every writer has their own idea of what a successful career looks like.  What does it look like to me?

A.  Financial security, a healthy reader base.  The freedom to travel and research as I’d like.

Q.  How did I develop my writing?

A.  Repetition.  I started at the bottom, with a high school education, but I approached writing with an eye toward improving.  I read and analyzed, and wrote my first book 4 times.  The 4th draft sold to Avon Books in 1990.  As a matter of fact, the 5th draft of ROUGH AND TENDER (rewritten because I can’t publish something I don’t love) is available in digital form everywhere.

Q.  If I could live anywhere in the world, where would that be?

A.  The Myrtles Plantation, in Louisiana.
