Featured Interview With Elisha Neubauer
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
The founder of European Geeks Publishing, Eleventh Hour Literary Press, and a self-proclaimed nerd – Elisha is obsessed with faeries, witches, science fiction, the paranormal, and all things Buffy the Vampire Slayer & Doctor Who.
Spending over a decade managing high volume businesses for others, Elisha decided to take a step back and focus on her own passions; leading her to open European Geeks Publishing and Eleventh Hour Literary Press. Elisha is an editor, reviewer, and freelance writer when not hard at work for European Geeks. Originally from the UK, Elisha now lives on a small family farm in Florida with her German husband and their three children, as well as an assortment of animals – peacocks, ducks, chickens, goats, pigs, and horses.
Her children’s book, Mr. Edmund Goat and the Elusive Clover, illustrated by Alyssa Savery, launched July 19th, 2015 and her fantasy novel, RED, is scheduled for late 2016
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I’ve been obsessed with books since I learned to read. I began writing my name at the age of two and I just kept going from there.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I’m a scifi and fantasy reader at heart, but I’m also into period pieces as well. I’m pretty happy with any fictional book though. I’m a huge fan of epic storylines – that includes tv and movies. I’ve always been attracted to Doctor Who and Buffy the Vampire Slayer and other epic stories. I don’t like to give up a story, so with books and tv alike, I love when the story just keeps going and is multifaceted.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
Mr. Edmund Goat and the Elusive Clover is a children’s picture book that teaches children about the value of friendships, while showing them that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side of the fence. The book was a collaboration between a close friend and I – she drew the pictures and I wrote the storyline. It took us approximately six months to complete the book in its entirety as she hand painted each picture in the book.
