Featured Interview With Patricia A. E. Hampton
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
Hello and thank you for taking the timeout to read my book and I hope you enjoyed it. First of all I’d like to introduce myself. My name is Patricia A.E. Hampton. I was born in New Orleans, Louisiana where I have lived most of my life. In 1988 I graduated from Rutledge College with a major in Nursing Assisting and went on to work in numerous of Nursing Homes around the metropolitan New Orleans area.
As a child, I had always wanted to become a writer and to be an actress. Over the years I have written some short stories in my spare time and have also performed in a stage dance play when I was a child at one of the local recreation centers in New Orleans.
After hurricane Katrina, I moved to Houston, Texas and in my spare time I took the time out to write this book. I then later moved to the Ohio area in hopes of furthering my goals in writing. I am now staying in the Dallas Ft. Worth area. You can say that I am a traveler As of now, it looks like my goals of being a published Arthur have finally come true.
Once again thanks for considering my book. P.S. This is a photo of me at my daughter’s house in Houston, Texas after Hurricane Katrina.

At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
My mother bought me all sorts of books before I even started school that she would help me read or read to me and as I advanced into higher grades; basically around the third grade, this is when I became obsessed with writing short stories at home in my spare time while playing school with my friends.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I have no set boundaries to the authors who I read; nor genre. In the past, I have enjoyed reading some of Terry Mcmillion books as well as Alex Haily and Rowling to name a few. my biggest inspirer was my mother who always kept writing in her tablet, and one dear elementary that told me how gifted.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My latest book is a child fiction book entitled, A Witchful Friend. Despite the book is of fiction, A Witchful Friend gives a true insight of some of the everyday struggles that some kid’s face in today’s society and that changes can be made with a little trust.
