Hello everyone, it’s time to take an author interview and today we have Author Hilary Smith with us. We are interviewing her for the book - .
Q What inspired you for this book?
A. That’s a great question. Growing up I suffered from depression. I didn’t have anyone to talk to about it in large part because my parents weren’t informed on what it was or how to help me cope with it. I grew up feeling ashamed of it. One day out of the blue a stranger said: I see you, you are important. You do have a purpose. Of course, it wasn’t immediate, but I realized I’m the best person to tell this story.
Q. What was the hardest part of creating this book?
A. The hardest part was being honest. I wanted Lucy to be loveable, and she is,but I wanted her to be clean. I didn’t want her to make so many mistake. I guess I wanted to save her pain.
Q. What do you hope people gain from reading it
A. I hope people who read this story will see that it’s okay to make mistakes. Their mistakes do not define them, and it’s an opportunity to grow.
Q. What are your ‘secret powers’ and some you wish you had?
A. I only have one, I can discern truth. I wish I had adaptability. Well… all people have at some degree. I wish I had more of it.
Q. How you become a published author? Any inspiration?
A. Yes. Promote before releasing the book. It’s makes the whole process smoother.
Q. Did you get any ideas for your books from your own dreams?
A. There are bits and pieces of me in this book and the rest of the series. As aauthor, I do my best not let my own desires guide the story.
Q. Why should we buy your book?
A.You should buy my book because we all need support and encouragement. No matter what form it comes in. It’s comforting to know that we are not alone in our pain. There is someone who can not only relate,but he/she knows exactly how we feel.
