Author Pen Name: Sandy Patsy

CA: What genre(s) do you write? Why do you write the stories that you write?

SP: Actual factual observations of people in their element. From my observations, I learn how not to be.

CA: When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

SP: I started writing poetically at about the 6th grade.

CA: Who or what was your inspiration for writing?

SP: My inspiration for Power of P. grew out of my need for emotional
survival.

CA: What is your work schedule like when you're writing?

SP: Crazy.

CA: Your book is about to be sent into the reader world, what is one word that describes how you feel?

SP: EAGER

CA: What do you like to do when you're not writing?

SP: Work at my regular job.

CA: How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

SP: One book. The only one, of course

CA: Do you tend to base your characters on real people or are they totally from your imagination?

SP: Real people. It's impossible to make up stuff weirder than the way people really are.

CA: Do you have any advice for the aspiring writers out there?

SP: My advice to would-be writers is DON'T do it for a living. You will starve if you "have to" write. It should be for your own expression & having fun. My Editor & I had a blast!
We will write another book, just for the pure pleasure of the experience.

CA: How can a reader contact you or purchase your books?

SP: Purchase a book on line from sandyellenpatsy@aol.com or from Amazon.com.

CA: Is there anything you would like to add?

SP: My Editor & I already had a fabulous relationship. By
writing the book with her, it became the funnest part of the day!
We are still having fun with it

Great interview! You're so right about doing things for fun and not for "have to", that goes for most. Sounds interesting, a book for my wishlist.

I enjoyed your interview! What you said about real or made up characters: so dead on! I work with quite a few people everyday and the stuff they say, you just can't make that stuff up! Can't wait to check out your book.

I like that 'don't do it for a living' -- that would take the fun out of writing if it suddenly became a 'job'. I love my real-world job, but if I had to do it to pay the rent - it would become a drudgery.

I'm also intrigued by the fact that you write based on real people, because of their wierdness. I'm inspired by their mishaps. ;)
