Featured Interview With Lillian and Dave Brummet
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
Lillian: I’m so thrilled to have been given the opportunity to appear on this wonderful website for a second time! We were here talking about our 2 books of poetry, green living book series and a book promotion guide we wrote… but now we are thrilled to come back to talk about our new cookbook: From One Small Garden. Dave and I have been married for 30 years and run the Brummet Media Group where we have written 6 published books, run 2 blogs, and a drum teaching studio.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
Dave: I was inspired by various sci-fi writers at first and felt I would go the fiction route but haven’t yet found the time to develop anything of my own in that genre. I definitely have some story ideas rattling around in my head. Some day…
I was also inspired by Neil Peart, the drummer/lyricist from the rock band Rush. He inspired me as a drummer to get myself song writing credits when involved with original music. Oddly enough as a drummer there are no credits for your performance as compared to a guitarist, keyboard player or song writer. So I started by writing song lyrics and most of my “poetry” is penned in that style.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
Lillian: I’m in awe of fiction writers like Stewart Woods, Linda Shuler, David Brin and Nancy Farmer. How do they do it?!! The first writer I ever knew was my mother, who dabbled at the craft for a short time. Later, teachers would comment about my writing, truly moved by what I wrote. These were the earliest influences, slowly pointing me in this direction. Some of my poetry was published, then I won some writing awards… later I took some career evaluation tests and writing kept coming up as a career option. Dave’s emotional support and strategic skills have been of great value; having that strength, someone to mull over challenges with, split the work with, and just share the experience in general.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
Lillian: I’m very excited about this latest release: From One Small Garden – Over 300 Delicious, Nutritious Recipes. This collection of recipes is the ultimate guide to utilizing fresh fruits and vegetables from backyard gardens to farmer’s markets – the freshest, purest source of food we can draw from.
