Featured Interview With Sissy Barr
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
“I’m a native Floridian, currently displaced in the mid-west, with plans to return to my home state in the near future. Mother Ocean calls me from afar, my daughter tells me I’m a ‘displaced mermaid’, and personally, I can’t get home fast enough.”
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
“Fun with Dick and Jane’… I was hooked! The first thing I remember writing, was a Halloween short for my younger sister. Excited about the upcoming holiday, I got creative and turned my bedroom into a makeshift haunted house. Then I wrote a scary little story to narrate as she interacted with the scenarios I had set up in room.
