Author Interview with Lynne Cantwell

 

What inspired you to want to become a writer? 

I’m not sure “inspired” is the best word.  I wrote my first book in the second grade, sort of on a dare, and just kept going.  It just feels like the thing I’m supposed to be doing with my life.

Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published. 

In a review of “SwanSong,” one reader said the moral of the book was that gratitude is the best revenge.  I hadn’t really thought of it that way when I wrote it, but it works!

If you could jump in to a book, and live in that world.. which would it be? 

Stephen R. Donaldson’s Land from his “Chronicles of Thomas Covenant the Unbeliever.”  I want to spend some serious time hiking in the Andelainian hills.

What is your dream cast for your book? 

I don’t really think in those terms when I’m writing.  Although my daughter Kat would kill me if I didn’t try to get Tom Hiddleston to play Loki in the Pipe Woman Chronicles books.

What was your favorite book when you were a child/teen? 

As a child, my favorite book was Little Women.  Then I read Jane Eyre in junior high, and that was my favorite book until I got out of college and found Donaldson’s work.

Is there a song you could list as the theme song for your book or any of your characters? 

Donna Summer’s “I Will Survive” would be a good theme for Maggie from The Maidens’ War.

What’s one piece of advice you would give aspiring authors? 

Keep writing!  And definitely consider going indie.  It seems like such a waste of time to me to spend years peddling your book to the publishing establishment, when you could be making money from it now.
