Interview with Author Lonna Enox


  1. When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
Ans. My mother mentioned late in her life that I had written my first book on a brown paper bag with crayons when I was 4.  That’s when they realized I could read or write.  I wrote those first ones for and read them to my little brother, who was 2.  He was my first…and still is…my fan.

  1. How long does it take you to write this books?
Ans. It takes almost two years by the time I’ve completely finished the process and it is in publication.  I would like to shorten that.

  1. What is your work schedule like when you're writing?
ANS. =>I have always been an ‘early bird’.  I write from ‘predawn’ until mid morning.  Then I spend the rest of the morning answering emails, mail, or researching.

  1. What brought you to write this book series?
Ans. =>I didn’t expect it to be a series when I wrote the first book.  But people liked my characters and asked for another book.  Then I realized that my Sorrel and Reed had not finished “their story”.

  1. How you become a published author? Any inspiration?
Ans. =>I grew up reading Nancy Drew mysteries.  I dreamed of writing my own books from that time.

  1. Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?
Ans. =>Ideas just arrive.  My brain has always been a “what if”.  I see something or someone and I wonder, “What if ?”  The information comes from research.  I go to the area where I want my books to be set and my husband Ron and I spend time there, walking, taking photos, talking to people, etc.

  1. When did you write your first book and how old were you?
Ans. =>I was 4, and the book was about a cow who had a feud with a cow in the next pasture.

  1. What do you like to do when you're not writing?
Ans. =>Writing is a solitary thing, so when I’m not writing I like to socialize.  I love to read, explore new places, walk on the beach (since I essentially live in a desert), and see new things.  I especially love the symphony, concerts, plays, and my church activities.

  1. How many books have you written? Which is your favourite?
Ans. =I have written three books.  Choosing a favorite is like choosing a favorite from my 3 children.  For in a way, these are my “children” too.  The characters are alive in my mind. 

  1. What's next for you? What are you working on now?
Ans. =>I am writing a fourth book, Untold Agony, in this Sorrel Janes series.  But I have a new set of characters and a different story waiting for me to finish.
