Author Interview with Stephanie Abbott
About the author - Stephanie Abbott is the face behind the popular pseudonym, S.A. Reid. Well-known for her “real and likeable characters”, she also writes  paranormal fiction, fantasy, and sci-fi. Additionally, she also pens cozy mysteries as Emma Jameson.

What inspired you to want to become a writer? Reading, I suppose.  I loved to read from an early age and by 8 I tried to write my first novel – something about a blind girl who could transform herself into a sighted alley cat.  If there was more to the story, I don’t recall.  Then when I was 11, I met my best friend, Maryam, a much more advanced writer, and had to improve to keep up!  So I’ll chalk it up to reading and friends.

Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published. Easy – having readers!  The first time I got a message from a fan, I was over the moon.  

If you could jump in to a book, and live in that world.. which would it be?
Anne McCaffrey’s Pern series.  Beautiful green pastoral planet, telepathic dragons, adventure and excitement.  

What is your dream cast for your book?
That’s tough to answer.  Michael Maguire would need to be convincing repressed in the beginning, then blossom as the story develops.  James Campbell would start out cheeky and carefree, then gradual reveal more depth.  There are probably dozens of young British actors who would be wonderful in those roles.

What was your favorite book when you were a child/teen?
The Once and Future King, by T.H. White.  And you know what?  It still is.

What's one piece of advice you would give aspiring authors?
Look at Amanda Hocking’s example.  Putting aside whether you love her books or hate them, she is the perfect model for a young writer because her entire focus was writing.  Like most of us, she had to work a day job.  She worried about bills and all the other real world concerns.  But her free time revolved around writing, putting herself out there, accepting feedback and writing more.  That kind of single-minded dedication to her passion make her a millionaire twice over.  More importantly, it gave her the things she wanted most: readers and national exposure as an author.

If you could choose only one time period and place to live, when and where would you live and why?
For every decade of my life you’d get a different answer.  But for now, the answer is – now.  This time, this place.

If you could be one of the Greek Gods, which would it be and why?
Athena.  Because The Who sang a song about her.  (Kidding!)

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
On the white sands of north
Florida, looking out at viridian (green) water every day.

What is your favorite Quote?
To get back my youth I would do anything in the world, except take exercise, get up early, or be respectable. – Oscar Wilde
