Author interview: Laurie Gardiner and her "A Journey of Words" story
Today author Laurie Gardiner takes over my page with a discussion about her short story, "Retribution," appearing in the anthology A Journey of Words (which also includes my brand new short story, "The Whaler's Dues"):
Synopsis: They say life can change in the blink of an eye. Ray Tremblay is living proof. In one horrific moment his world shatters. Now, the man who destroyed his family has nowhere to hide, and Ray has nothing to lose.
What inspired you to write this story: Retribution was inspired by a news story I read about a family on a road trip.
How long have you been writing? As long as I can remember.
What genre do you usually write in? My first novel, Tranquility, is women’s fiction. The novel I’m working on now is contemporary young adult. I enjoy reading and writing in a wide variety of genres.
What else are you working on at the moment? I am currently working on a second novel and a short story.
What advice do you have to give to new writers? Never stop learning. The more you know about writing, and about yourself as a writer, the better you will become.
