Author interview with Phyllis H. Moore

What’s the hardest part of writing YA fiction?

Keeping up with jargon and what’s hot. I tend to set my stories in the past, so the spirits drift between time. The emotions, angst, turmoil,and uncertainty are memorable for most of us. Dickens knew, “It was the best of times and the worst of times”.

When did you know you wanted to be a writer?

I have always enjoyed writing. I never did it for others to read until recently. The stories come easily. I sit with my laptop, and the characters tell me what to do.

Have you found any clever ways to market your books to YA readers?

I’m still learning. I think a provocative cover is a good start.

What YA books have had the greatest influence on your writing?

The Hunger Games and The Twilight Trilogy. They appealed to all ages.

Author Bio: Phyllis H. Moore is a new author. She is currently published in Fiction Southeast, and The Yellow Chair Review. Phyllis will have a short story in the soon to be released anthology, Brewed Awakenings. She lives on a small ranch in south Texas with her husband and adopted terrier, Ollie Bubba.
