Pinterest Board for Girl With Three Eyes:


Author Interview
1.       What would you consider to be your Kryptonite as an author?
Research! You need it. It’s essential to flavoring and layering your story but it can be total time suck. I love delving into information and it can distract for days!

2.       If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?
Nothing is ever done. At some point, you have to release your story to the world.

3.       Favorite childhood memory involving books? 
Reading one book after another.  I used to have the time to binge-read all weekend long.

4.       If you could dine with any literary character, who would it be and why?
Elizabeth Bennett. I just want to know if I could keep up with her wit and eloquence over a spot of tea. I am a tea lover!

5. What fantastical fictional world would you want to live in (if any) given the chance?
                Hogwarts. While I love Harry Potter and hidden worlds, the world I really want to explore would probably be more futuristic. I’m a Trekkie nerd at heart.

6. Did you want to be an author when you grew up?
                I began down the path when I read a book and wanted the end to be different. I didn’t feel like I was satisfied completely. It was the first book that I really wanted to edit. Then, I asked myself, why not write your own story?

7. If you could own any animal as a pet, what would it be?
A white tiger. I had the privilege of visiting behind the scenes at a zoo in India when I was younger. I got to see baby white tigers up so close, I could touch them. They were beautiful as was their mama (who was eyeing me like a snack). They are magnificent beings.

8.  What is the first book that made you cry?I loved to read romance. I ugly cried over many a heart-wrenching romance book when I was younger.
9.   How long, on average, does it take you to write a book?This one is difficult. Some book cut like butter, quick and easy. Other books are as hard as marble and you have to slow chisel away (often with blood, sweat, and tears) to perfection. The problem is that you never know until you’re into a book which one it’s going to be.
10. What creature do you consider your "spirit animal" to be?                A golden retriever dog. I have one and I couldn’t imagine a more fitting spirit.
11.  What are your top 5 favorite movies?Pride and Prejudice
Harry Potter
The Two Towers (LOTR)
Field Of Dreams
The Secret Garden
12. What fictional character would you want to be friends with in real life?Hermione Granger. Who doesn’t want to be friends with the Minister of Magic?

Author Bio:
Priya Ardis writes Blood&Treasure fantasy romances which include coming of age, bad boys, globe-trotting, and a spoonful of sassy banter.
She loves books of all kinds–but especially the ones that ensnare you and let your chai go cold. Her novels come from a childhood of playing too much She-Ra and watching too much Spock. She started her first book at sixteen, writing in notebooks on long train rides during a hot summer vacation. Her favorite Arthurian is the Lady of Shalott by Lord Tennyson.
What does she like to read? Books with fantasy and magic with a cool heroine that’s really just the girl/boy next door. Books with all the feels. And, hello, Mr. Darcy anyone?
