Author interviews are always fun, but some interviews are more fun than others. That’s definitely true for the interview I just had with Kathryn Elizabeth Jones of Idea Creations Press.

Why so fun, you might ask? Well, because I enjoyed the questions she had for me. Many of them required some soul searching and some of them made me stop and cherish my achievements as an author, modest as they may be.

Interviews are generally seen as a means for anyone to know the interviewee better. That may be, but I think an interview (a good one, that is) helps the interviewee get in touch with their inner self, connect to their deepest thoughts. This opportunity was just that.

Also, I loved the fact that Kathryn is so remarkably organized with the interview process. There was never a rush to get things wrapped up quickly, which gave me plenty of time to mull over things and reach deep to find real answers. Thanks, Kathryn.

Without further ado, here’s an excerpt from the interview:

How do you come up with your characters? Why would readers want to get to know them?

They come to me in my dreams. No, really, some of them do. Sometimes, I wake up with the vivid memory of a dream, complete with characters and the outline of a story. Out comes the paper and pen! Sometimes characters come to me from other stories I love, when I go what if this were different? For example, after reading Cinderella, I might think, what if the stepmother was trying to force Cinderella into this marriage with the prince and Cinders ran away from home to prevent the union instead? Off I go outlining! Other times, characters pop into my mind from random conversations with friends. And sometimes, I simply want to write an interesting story about a character with certain traits or in a certain world.

Once upon a previous life on planet Earth, S.G. Basu trained to be an engineer, and her interest in science and her love of engineering shows up time and again in her books.
