Today we have the ninth author interview for ‘A Haunting of Words’ – F.A. Fisher. His story “Fighting Sleep” is actually the one I am in the middle of reading right now. Also told from a child’s perspective, it deals with the child’s special powers and his unbelieving parents…
The new crib smells wrong to Ross. His parents won’t listen to him because he’s only four, but how can he protect his new sister from it all by himself? The truth is, he’s afraid the crib is haunted.
What inspired you to write this story?
I overheard a small girl when she walked into a room, looked at the crib, and said, “That crib looks evil.” I thought the idea of an evil crib sounded pretty cool, so I wrote the story.
How long have you been writing?
Off and on for thirty years. Last year I decided to get serious about it and published my first two novels.
What genre do you associate most within your writing?
Science Fiction and Fantasy
What are you working on now?
The third novel in my Cloaks series.
What else do you have published?
My first novel is Cloaks. The sequel is Pandir Decloaked.
What advice would you offer to new writers?
Keep writing. Don’t stop (repeatedly!) like I did.
