Author Interview – Christina Smith

Tell us a bit about your family. I’m married to a wonderful man who is very supportive of me, and have two great kids who don’t bug me too much when I’m writing. I am very close to my mother and two sisters, they are like best friends to me. 
How do you work through self-doubts and fear?It’s hard. It happens a lot. But I read good reviews, and when readers ask me when a new books coming out, it helps.
Why do you write? Because I want to make readers feel the same way I do when I read a really great book. 
Have you always enjoyed writing?Actually, I never knew I could write. I loved writing stories as a child, but didn’t do it more than I had to for school. I didn’t even attempt to write anything until I was 37. 
 What motivates you to write? I don’t really know. I just love it so much that I can’t stop.
What are you most proud of in your personal life? My Marriage. I know of a lot of people in my life, with marital problems, and my husband and I have a great marriage. And my kids of course.
What books did you love growing up? VC Andrews, I started reading my mom’s books, and then moved onto Anne of Green Gables, my favorite series.
Who is your favorite author? Lucy Maud Montgomery
What book genre of books do you adore? It used to be Contemporary Romance, but for a while I’ve been gravitating toward young adult, it makes me feel young. 
What book should everybody read at least once? It’s a hard choice between Anne of Green Gables and Pride and Prejudice.
Is there any books you really don’t enjoy? Horror, I used to read Stephen King, but had a difficult time going to sleep.
What do you hope your obituary will say about you? That I was loved, and had a lot of great experiences.
Location and life experiences can really influence writing, tell us where you grew up and where you now live? I grew up in Kingston Ontario Canada, and I now live 30 minutes away in a rural area where my husband grew up. But it still go to Kingston a lot.
