Author Q&A
1.       What would you consider to be your Kryptonite as an author?

THE INTERNET. LOL It’s so easy to get distracted!

2.       If you could tell your younger writing self anything, what would it be?
Hmmm…I think maybe “pace yourself” because I’ve faced burnout before, but I think mostly I’d just say “don’t be afraid to take creative risks.”

3. Favorite childhood memory involving books?
I used to spend a lot of time in the summers in our sunporch on an old sofa, reading. It was heaven.

4. Did you want to be an author when you grew up?
I did! I was always writing poems and little stories, and I did my degree in English Lit and figured I’d write a book someday. That got put to the wayside as I entered the workforce and got married and started a family, but after our youngest was born I launched in and never looked back.

5. If you had to describe yourself in three words, what would they be?
Stubborn, driven, and soft-hearted.

6. If you could own any animal as a pet, what would it be?
I’m a dog AND a cat person for different reasons. I’d say…just own a pet and love it. Loving something is never a mistake.

7. Have you ever met anyone famous?
Define famous? I met Elizabeth Gilbert last year and that was a pretty big thing for me. I adore her.

8. How long, on average, does it take you to write a book?  
It depends on the book. A book like The Heiress’s Pregnancy Surprise generally takes 4-6 weeks, but a longer book with multiple plot lines etc. takes me anywhere from 3-6 months.

9. How do you select the names of your characters?
So this is kind of funny, really. Names generally give me a really hard time, but one trick is to watch movie credits and jot down ones that I like!

10. What creature do you consider your "spirit animal" to be?
As I am not indigenous, this isn’t something I can really claim for myself.

11. Tell us 10 fun facts about yourself!
I work in a chocolate shop part time

I nearly failed math; my first “real world” job was in accounting.

If I hadn’t done my degree in English, it would have been in music

I’m the baby of the family and it’s true, we are spoiled. 😉

My favourite TV show is Masterpiece.

After M&B released my first book, I went to London for the AMBA luncheon – my first time overseas and traveling by myself.

I once did a recording for a CD

If I were to go back to school, it would be in psychology (I have a minor in it)

My sister is married to my husband’s brother.

And the most embarrassing but funny when I look back on it moment: In my second year of university, I won our house “Diaper” award because I once laughed so much I peed my pants. (No, alcohol was not involved, lol)

12. If you could live in any time period, what would it be and why?
Is it weird to say Edwardian because I love the clothes?

13. What is your favorite genre to read?
Historical fiction, oddly enough. I love romance but I’ve got a real soft spot for escaping into the past. Current fave authors include Kate Quinn and Jennifer Robson, and I just read one of Pamela Bell’s Emmerdale titles that was delightful.

Author Bio –
While bestselling author Donna Alward was busy studying Austen, Eliot and Shakespeare, she was also losing herself in the breathtaking stories created by romance novelists like LaVyrle Spencer and Judith McNaught.  Several years after completing her degree she decided to write a romance of her own and it was true love! Five years and ten manuscripts later she sold her first book and launched a new career. While her heartwarming stories of love, hope, and homecoming have been translated into several languages, hit bestseller lists and won awards, her very favorite thing is when she hears from happy readers.

Donna lives on Canada’s east coast. When she’s not writing she enjoys reading (of course!), knitting, gardening, cooking…and is a Masterpiece Theater addict.  You can visit her on the web at www.DonnaAlward.com and join her mailing list at www.DonnaAlward.com/newsletter .
