Catherine Mesick Interview – Author of Pure

Catherine Mesick

An Author Interview with Double Decker Book Tours

1) What was the hardest thing about writing your latest book?

The hardest thing was just having the discipline to stick to deadlines and meet my writing goals each day. There’s always something you could do around the house, or an errand you need to run. You have to tell yourself that you aren’t going anywhere or doing anything until you get your writing done. I’ve heard you can tell much a writer is procrastinating by how clean his/her house is.

 

2) If you could meet any one of your characters who would it be and why?

I would definitely like to meet Simon. He reminds me a little bit of one of my friends, and I would like to tell him in a very nice way that he’s a little too stuck in the past. It’s wonderful to have cherished memories from childhood, but there are also good things ahead for him in the future. I’d like to tell him that he’ll miss out if he’s always looking backward.

 

3) How did you come up with the idea for this book series?

I was inspired by two things—Russian folklore and Fabergé eggs. I remember looking at a picture of a red-and-gold Fabergé egg and thinking that it looked like it was actually magic. And that became the basis for the ‘clear fire’ that appears in the books. And I’d always loved Russian folktales—they feature a lot of strong, beautiful heroines who go on dangerous quests. I wanted to bring that same sense of magic and adventure to the Pure series.

 

4) What’s your next writing project?

I’m actually working on two things at the moment. I’m working on the next book in the Pure series, which is titled Ghost Girl, and I’m also working on a series of four supernatural short stories based on the seasons. Once the short stories are done, I’m going to post them for free on my website, http://catherinemesick.blogspot.com/.

 

5) What is the best way for readers to talk to you and stuff?

The best way to contact me is through Twitter (@CatherineMesick), or through my website http://catherinemesick.blogspot.com. I’m on both of those every day, and I love to meet new people Smiling face (black and white).
