Author Interview – Elyse Douglas

at 6:00 AM

What was your favorite book when you were a child/teen?

Elyse:  I absolutely loved Little Womenand wanted to be like Jo.  Since I’ve been working with children as a speech-language pathologist, my favorite children’s book is The Pop-up Mice of Mr. Brice by Theo. LeSieg, illustrated by Roy McKie.  Every child I know wants to read it over and over and over again.

Doug: Lad a Dog.

Is there a song you could list as the theme song for your book or any of your characters?

Both:  Greg Maroney’s beautiful piano piece Mountain Snow.  It’s on our trailer for The Astrologer’s Daughter.

What’s one piece of advice you would give aspiring authors?

Both:  Learn how to take a rejection punch.

If you could choose only one time period and place to live, when and where would you live and why?

Doug:  I would choose today.  Right where I am.  New York City.  It’s a wonderful time to be on the planet.

Elyse:  I agree.  We have creature comforts like running water and central heat, but we can also enjoy nature in the wild when we want.

If you could be one of the Greek Gods, which would it be and why?

Doug:  Poseidon.  I love to swim and I’d love to carry around that big Trident.

Elyse:  Artemis.  It’s great to give off light without being too hot to touch or look at!

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?

Both:  Right where we are, in New York City.

What is your favorite Quote?

Doug:  “I must create a system or be enslaved by another man’s;

I will not reason or compare: my business is to create.”

-William Blake

Elyse:  “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”
