Debut novelist A. Gavazzoni is here today to chat about her psychological thriller, Behind the Door – Book #1 in the Hidden Motives series.
Welcome, A. Please share a little bit about your current release.
What inspired you to write this book?
What exciting story are you working on next?
I’m working on book #3 on the trilogy, I believe it’s going to be the last one, and it’s going to explain the other two… When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I always loved to write. As a lawyer, I’m always writing other people’s stories, but only when my first novel was published did I feel as if I was a real writer.
Do you write full-time? If so, what’s your work day like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find time to write?
No, I’m an active lawyer, and I have to divide my time between my clients, my legal profession, and writing. I organized my schedule in a way that it allows me to write every day. I also have other hobbies, such as amateur astrology and dancing, I love to cook for my friends, and I love to be with them for a good laugh, and I think it’s all a matter of organizing things.
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
I send notes to myself whenever I have an idea, and I’m far away of a computer. I’ll use my phone to send myself an email or text.
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
So many things. A race car driver, a writer, an astronaut, a scientist, an engineer, a ballerina— all those things at once! But since I’m a writer, I can be all those things in my mind.
I’m a very positive person, and I try to see the bright side of everything. Life is much easier when you do that.
