Although I am very limited in my computer abilities, co-authors with my e-book publisher, Prism Books, seem to have faith that I can do this (they have more confidence in me than I do.) I am supposed to answer 4 questions, and then recommend 3 more authors. I’m willing to give it a try.
- What are you working on” I am working on my 14th novel, called “Searching for Sarah.” Although it’s completely fiction, it is based on something that happened to me about 20 years ago, when I rented an artist’s studio for a short time on a rooftop in Jerusalem. I found a painting, unsigned, that had been left behind of a young woman, very sad, looking through a window. I became obsessed with her story; and in my novel my heroine sets out to find her because she feels an inexplicable affinity to her.
- How does your work differ from others in its genre? I don’t think it fits into any particular genre – it is very spiritual, has some romance, but is hard to categorize.
- Why do you write what you do? In 1974 I was in a terrorist attack in Jerusalem, where 15 people died and 35 lost limbs. I felt I had been spared for a reason – and God had a job for me. Since then, most of my writing has had a spiritual element; a lot of it has been set in Jerusalem and I try to use my talent for good.
- How does your writing process work? I have been writing since I was first published as a child aged 7. I’m now 83, and not a day goes by that I don’t write something. I have never had writer’s block – all the words are there waiting. I am sure I won’t live long enough to write all the things I want to. I feel very blessed that I actually get paid for doing what I most love in life.
I have picked the next 3 authors to answer the same questions.
