  Interview with Sally Metzger - Author of Night of Mysterious Blessings What advice would you give a new writer? Every writer is different. Find what works for you. If you get advice (like mine), give it a try. If it doesn't fit, ignore it. Persist. Persist. Persist. Believe in yourself. Keep writing and sending out your work. Although we can learn from others, and imitation is normal at first, eventually, every writer must find their own style, their own "voice." Let yourself be yourself. Read your writing out loud. Does it sound natural? Elmore Leonard, a famous writing instructor, once said, "If it sounds like writing, I rewrite it." Don't edit while you write. Instead, write what comes to mind in freedom. When you edit, it's time to get picky. Once you're picky, annihilate extra words. Make every utterance count either for meaning or to create a pleasant rhythm. Picture your audience and converse with them from your heart. Be moved

  Interview with Sunny Weber - Author of Beyond Flight or Fight Saving More Dog Lives by Educating the People Who Care for Them www.sunnyweber.com   When did you first know you wanted to be an author? I began writing stories as soon as I learned how to write—in first grade in those days. I remember the first day of school when I wrote my own name on that funny lined paper with the big, fat #2 pencil! My first short story was called, Fearless Ferdnand the Bull. I still have it and it has a big, red “A+” on it. I was hooked! What is your favorite genre to read? What about that genre draws you? I go on binges. Right now I’m reading a great deal about the history of the human species and the development of societies and governments. I have had binges in history, biographies (especially of outstanding women), and of course, animal behavior. I’ve read a ton of middle grade fiction since it is an important learning tool for my own work. I watch movies to “escape” but I read to
