Delighted to have author Gabriele Russo here for an interview. Let's find out more about her and her new book.
~ Welcome to my blog page, Gabriele.
~ Thank you. Glad to be here.
~ I always begin my interviews asking my guests where they are right now.
~ I am at home, in my office. I live in Virginia.
~ You recently released the third book of your series GODS INC. Tell us more about it and the series as a whole.
~ This last one stands a little to the side of the others. A lot of the characters were in the other books, but the story stands on its own. This being said, like in the first two, it starts with someone wanting power they shouldn’t have, here being immortality and avoiding punishment. It’s also concerned with how far someone should go to gain or hold onto power. All wrapped up in a funny story pitting the gods against an evil witch who wants to destroy Yggdrasil the World Tree.
~ How did you decide to become a writer?
~ Decide isn’t quite the right word. I wrote my first novel, then realized I enjoyed it and wanted to continue. I had tried to write a few times before in my younger days, but it never worked until I discovered humorous SF and fantasy with Douglas Adams and Terry Pratchett. Then came the rejections, and it was a matter of deciding what amount of effort I was willing to put into it… I chose to continue and went back to school to learn the craft. And here I am today.
