Introducing Author Kelli Pizarro

Dragon Soul Press proudly presents Christian Fiction Author Kelli Pizarro has joined the ranks! Delightful tales are coming soon. Here is an interview with the author herself!

  1. Do you think writers have a normal life like others?
    I think the harder question to answer is, what is a normal life? I think we all share the aspects of life most could consider common ground such as love, faith, family, and all that fills in the in-between. I think the only thing that separates us from the rest is the amount of hours spent typing at a keyboard, tears shed over imaginary friends, and an almost-incriminating Google search history.authorlogo
  2. What would you say is the easiest aspect of writing?
    The research stage. It comes easy to me because I enjoy it so much. When I was very young, I would copy pages in the Encyclopedia for fun. Now, hours on the web and trips to my books’ setting locations are a grown-up version of that nerdery, and what drives me to write more.
  3. Do you read much and if so who are your favorite authors?
    I read as much as I write! Francine Rivers, Liz Curtis Higgs, Melinda Inman, Celena Janton, Frank Peretti, and Lisa Tawn Bergren are my go-to authors for consistently great reads.
  4. Have you ever left any of your books to stew for months on end or even a year?
    Only Shanty by the Sea. It was the first book I started, and my most recent finish. I had to grow as the story did, both as a writer and as an individual, in order to see it to completion.
  5. What is the most important thing about a book in your opinion?
    That it makes you feel. I don’t mind so much what emotion it evokes, as long as it does so deeply.
  6. Any advice you would like to give to aspiring writers?
    Finish that first draft. Make time to write, often. And don’t compromise your voice as an author: be open to constructive criticism, but don’t lose your voice.
  7. How much of yourself do you put into your books?
    I put a huge amount of my time, energy, and heart into my books. They are the little pieces of me I will leave in the world when I am gone. They are the stories my children and grandchildren will see and know that imagination and creativity are important parts of being human.
  8. Who are your books mostly dedicated to?
    The God I serve and the readers who support my writing.
  9. How do you see writing? As a hobby or a passion?
    Both. The amount of time spent writing during a particular season in my life may make it easier to categorize what my writing is to me at that time, but altogether, it is both hobby and passion.
  10. Where can readers learn more about you?
    They can learn more about me by following my social media accounts! I often post updates about my writing and insights into my life on Twitter and Facebook.
