INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR DEVORAH FOX BY AOIFE MARIE SHERIDAN  

Question: What have you published recently?

The King’s Ransom was released in June, 2013. It’s the sequel to my first published novel, The Lost King.

Question: How, and when, did you decide to become a writer?

. I don’t remember deliberately deciding to become a writer. I’ve just always done it. I recall writing a novel in the third grade about a Korean orphan, not that as an eight-year-old American girl I actually KNEW anything about Korean orphans. I’ve kept a journal on and off since I was a teenager.

Question: Where can we find your published writing?

My books are available from amazon.com and Kindle, on smashwords.com, Nook, iBooks, Kobo and Diesel and most online retailers. They’re available in libraries and even on the Espresso Book Machine.

Question: What is a typical day like for you as a writer?

A typical day for me is that of the owner of small business. I spend nearly all of it taking orders, filling orders, staying in touch with my customers and my industry and most all, marketing and promotion. On the rare occasion when I can devote an entire day to writing, I get up at my normal time of about 4:30 or 5 a.m. I check email and social media. I go for a 3-mile powerwalk for exercise, then get dressed for the day and have breakfast. I write until about noon. After a break for lunch and a power nap, I write until about 5 p.m. Then it’s “step away from the computer” because my eyes are tired from staring at the screen all day.

Question: What are your favorite characters that you have created? Tell us about them

King Bewilliam continues to fascinate me. When I started The Lost King I thought that I knew who he was. The more I write about him, the more dimensions I uncover. In The King’s Ransom I became acquainted with his knights. I’m looking forward to spending more time with them in the next book which I plan to start in November, 2013.

Question: do you find you “mentally edit” other writers’ works as you read them? Does doing this help you or bother you?

I do find myself mentally red-penciling the more glaring writing infractions, like “he thought to himself,” or “she said laughingly.” If a book is very badly written, I’ll just put it aside unfinished but I’m happy to say that doesn’t happen often.

Question: What music do you listen to, while writing?

It depends on what I’m writing. Usually I have on a Pandora mix of jazz fusion instrumentals. For certain stories, I find it helpful to listen to classic rock.

Question: What do you eat while writing?

Coffee and… I’m afraid I’m getting a reputation for this… PopTarts. Unfrosted cinnamon and brown sugar. What can I say?

Five for Fun:

What is your favourite non-alcoholic drink?  

Coffee. If Nature hadn’t invented coffee, I would have had to.

What is your favourite cartoon character?

Brenda Starr. As a little girl I wanted to BE Brenda Starr. I have a Brenda Starr figurine on my bookcase.

What is your favourite movie of all time?

Starman

What do you like to do for fun or just to relax?

What’s that?

Synopsis

When those you have loved and lived for betray you, how do you go on? Book Two of "The Bewildering Adventures of King Bewilliam" finds Robin, the hero of The Lost King, at sea both literally and figuratively. At first directionless and purposeless, he determines to reunite with his sons and with them restore his shattered kingdom but Fate has different plans for the lost king. Driven far from his home in the Chalklands, Robin pits his will against a dragon, a fortress's duplicitous and deadly guards, high winds on the open water, and a horrifying sea monster only to meet his most formidable opponent.
