After reading The Chosen Seven & Melita, I could not resist talking to Gill D. Anderson, the author of both of these books. So, imagine my delight, when she agreed to have a conversation with me. This is one of the most heartfelt interviews on my blog. She has opened up about her personal life, writing process, the source of inspiration for her characters, and tips for aspiring writers. Let’s welcome the very talented Gill D. Anderson to our family.
James B. Hansom: As a Sailor for many years, one absorbs the rules of the oceans into one’s own life; as such every wave has a peak and a trough. Accepting bi-polar is no different, like a heart-beat you have the highs and the lows, just a little more intense! The mania phases can be really useful as one can get so much done in such a short amount of time, but afterward comes the crash which can halt you from achieving anything; so I guess things take about the same time overall.
