Author Interview: M Yero Morris
I had the story just spilling out of me as a catharsis out of myself. It started as a Why letter to my father... he has not read a word.
Do your characters ever want to take over the story?
What is your favourite food?
pizza and anything cheezy
Are you a morning person or a night owl?
night, by much, but life has taken me around the clock a few times over
Where do you dream of travelling to and why?
everywhere and anywhere, just cause. I believe the world has just too many things to be learned from. Still working on the broke/money side of traveling though.
Do distant places feature in your books?
you could say that
Do you listen to music while writing?
yes, can't work without a soundtrack, you can read that on the oscars speech in the back of the book
Could you tell us a bit about your latest release?
I had to tell my own story, which is meant to inspire and help anyone who is in a tough place in life. I was searching for the proverbial pot of gold, and found something much more valuable... the saga is in the book.
What have you learned about writing and publishing since you first started?
well, I was an industrial for 15 years, just got the literarybug sting me recently, so I am stumbling and learning everyday as I go
Is there anything you would do differently?
maybe start earlier, but then again, I wouldn't have a rounded up story to tell
Who, or what, if anything has influenced your writing?
life. If I had to narrow that down a bit, my mother. All others are in my book.
Anything you would say to those just starting out in the craft?
dive right in. Fear is totally worthless. with todays tools, it is up to you and you alone to make your work available beyond your brain.
What are three words that describe you?
hopelessly-idealist/realist happy/loveful creative businessman, that happens to write from time to time.
What's your favourite book or who is your favourite writer?
I have so many. Conan Doyle, Alan Weiss, Woody Allen,Cousteau, DragonLance saga... I've read maybe around and upwards 1000 books. So, yup, no trends. I do drive Amazon suggestions crazy.
