Featured Interview With Anya Stassiy
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I was born in Kazakhstan and moved to the US eighteen years ago. I finished college in NY where I now practice as a physician assistant for my day job. I have three kids who keep me busy all days of the week. I try to write when they are busy for an hour during their extracurricular activities or when I am putting my little one to sleep.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I started to enjoy writing in high school and when I took creative writing in college I understood that I was really passionate about writing and putting words together came easy to me.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I enjoy reading. I read various genres, by different authors. I do buy Dan Brown’s books when they come out and I have been waiting and waiting for George R.R. Martin to release his next book.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My book is called Eyes of Amber. It was inspired by my experience in the medical field and all the patient stories that I have collected over the years. I started writing it at least five years ago. I had about 30,000 words written and I put it away for about 2 years, I picked it up after attending a work shop of an indie author who inspired me to finish it. Which I did in just two months.
