Featured Interview With Louise Lake
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I live in Wakefield in the UK where I was born and raised. I currently live with my partner and our four furry babies (Guinea Pigs). I love animals in general but my favourites are Guinea Pigs for their cuteness factor and Blackbirds because they are cheery looking little birds.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I was facinated with stories in genral in book form and on screen from a very young age. I began with a love for horror stories and movies and started off by writing my own short fiction and poetry based on my favourite monsters like Dracula. I stopped writing in my teen years after losing a lot of my work, and started again at the age of nineteen.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
My favourite authors are Stephen King, Darren Shan, R.L.Stine, Jane Austen, Cassandra Clare, Bella Forrest, Nicholas Sparks, Veronica Roth, Suzanne Collins, Rhonda Byrne, Paulo Coelho, Terry Brooks and Stephanie Meyer.
As you can tell by the range of authors I don’t really have a favourite genre, I am open to any book of interest based on the story.
I am inspired by all of the above authors as I do not limit myself to writing in one genre.
