Featured Interview With A. Gavazzoni
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I am from Brazil and I’m a lawyer and a writer…I love to dance, to work out, to read and to cook. I love to learn foreigner languages and culture ( I speak English, French, Spanish and Portuguese) and I travel abroad whenever I can. I love to know new cultures and to try different dishes. I love art, museums and history. I love animals and I have two dogs, two beautiful girls, Gaia and Juno.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I loved books before I could read them. My mom used to read to me, and I remember thinking each book was like a magic box, exposing me to a whole new world out there. When I finally learned to read at the age of six, I was already addicted to the stories found within the pages of books.
I started writing books when I was ten, but I was so afraid someone would read them. For some reason, I was embarrassed about writing down what I imagined. When I became an adult and started working as an attorney, I found myself constantly writing stories as part of my professional defense cases. Two years ago, I decided I would become a professional writer, and I can’t tell you how happy I am to finally be doing what I really love to do.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
So many marvelous writers have inspired me. To start with, there are the classical authors, such as Emily Bronte, Stendhal, Dumas, Saad Marquis and Margaret Mitchell. There are also quite a few modern ones—Marc Levy, Tom Clancy, Dan Brown, John Grisham, and Colleen McCullough—but I could list at least a hundred here…the poems of Alisson Matos, a Brazilian writer, and Baudelaire, Edgar Allan Poe…
I have no favorite genres at all. I will try anything, but I’m not a huge fan of horror novels.
All people—not just authors—inspire me to write. I love to observe people. I love to sit in a café, alone, and just watch the people who come and go… How interesting to imagine the lives of everyone who passes by. Some have sad eyes that make me wonder what kind of pain they take in their hearts; some seem amused and happy, and I think about what has brought a smile to his or her face. There is no one person like another. They are all unique. They are all inspiring.
But all that—people and things that have inspired my writing—is part of a post on my blog http://agavazzoni.com/blog/what-inspired-me-to-write-behind-the-door/
Tell us a little about your latest book?
Behind The Door is a psychological and erotic thriller. It’s a real roller coaster for the reader, as every page brings them a surprise, an unexpected detour. I can tell you it’s not predictable at all. It’s mysterious, sexy, and thrilling, and the reader is going to discover—if he dares to open the door—how many secrets and hot encounters hide behind it.
