Interview Questions
By LaRae Parry aka The Crazy Lady

Q. Did you pick your genre or did it pick you?
A. Both. I picked the whacked out Journaling/Satire and my publisher at the time, picked Romance. Keeping true to myself, I just had to throw in humor, geeky-ness, and paranormal.

Q. Do you write in multiple genres or just one?
A. Because I’m a psychopath, I write in multiple genres . . . it makes life much more interesting.

Q. How much time do you devote to writing per day?
A. I spend at least two hours a day actually writing. My mind, however, is writing all the time. I can’t keep up with it.

Q. What have you published so far?
A.* Love at Tadpole Square, which is a paranormal, romance, comedy short story.

* Love’s Bah HumDeBugger, which is Romance, Humor, and Fantasy short story.

* The Danish Pastry is a romantic, humorous novel with a little bit of paranormal thrown in. It is the first in a sequel. The Ghost in Room 3327 will be the next novel to come out in this series.

* Journal of a Crazy Lady is a satirical memoir based on actual events in my life. I wrote it because—well—it’s me.

* Crud . . . Another Journal is the second journal in the Crazy Lady Journals series. Sadly, it too, is funny.

* Hubba-Hubba Santa Claus is a romantic comedy of errors with a touch of fantasy. It’s funny as heck.

Q. Has your method of writing changed over the course of publishing your books?
A. Not really. I work it out in my mind, jot down notes, type it up, then polish. My motto is: “Write first. Polish later.”

Q. Did you self-publish, go the traditional way, or do both?
A. I have done both. I like having a publisher because she takes care of the mechanics of publishing a book, but I like the freedom self-publishing gives me. I’m happy with both. No kidding.

Q. Which method did you prefer?
A. I prefer self-publishing, maybe?

Q. Of the books that you have written, do you have a favorite? Why?
A. Yes. I have a favorite book. It’s The Danish Pastry. Not because it’s my best writing, but because it’s what came out of me during my therapy to teach me to read again. For me, writing is much easier than reading. I still struggle with reading. Weird. Huh.

Q. Why did you become a writer?
A. I came down with the umbilical urge to write. It’s something I must do.

Q. Who is your target audience?
A. Women from age twelve to ninety-nine. I figure if you’re older than ninety-nine, you’ve heard it all anyway.

Q. What are you working on now?
A. I’m working on four, count ‘em, four books. (1) The Ghost in Room 3327, (2) Lost in Bizarre-O World (third in the Crazy Lady Journals series), (3) Fifty Shades of White (A Crazy Lady Medical Journal), and (4) I Kissed a Witch (A Paranormal/Romance/Humorous Novel – Sequel to Love at Tadpole Square).

Q. What makes you different from other writers in your genre?
A. Um, er, a . . . other writers have normal brains—mine is abnormal.

Q. “Where do you see yourself in a year?”
A. My answer is: “In the same place I’m at right now . . . sitting at my desk, in my office, on the computer.”
