Featured Interview With Robin M. Farella
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I am a Chicago native who moved to Southern California about six years ago. I am a diehard Chicago Bears fan, no matter how bad they play. I am a superfan of fantasy fiction and also love Historical fiction. I love to read stories that take you away to magical places or to other times. I have two dogs and one cat who I also like to call my ghost writer, as she is by my side whenever I am writing.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I realized my fascination with books at an early age. Both my parents were librarians. My dad worked at the main branch of the Chicago Public Library and my mom was LRC Director of my school. I guess my love of books is in my DNA. I am a fairly new writer. I started my first book in January of 2023 and am currently working on my second in a series that will consist of five books.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
My favorite authors are Anne Easter Smith, Karen Harper, and Laura Ingles Wilder. My favorite genre to read is a toss up between fantasy and historical fiction.
