Today we’re getting to know about eco-fantasy author, Terra Harmony.
What was the first book you wrote? Published?
The first book I wrote and published was The Kindred Curse Anthology, a New Adult vampire set of connected short stories, each subsequent story a prequel to the prior. I don’t advertise this one too much, it was more of a guilty pleasure than anything to get vampires out of my system!
Which author do you most look up to?
I really look up to authors (self-published or traditionally published) that take the time to mentor and coach the rest of us. I definitely would not be where I am today without these selfless, talented people.
What is your ultimate goal as an author?
Depends on which day you ask me! Sometimes I think I’m not sure I event want to write anymore. Sometimes I want writing to be my full time thing. Sometimes I start delving into how to write screenplays. Overall, I believe life is all about balance and I’m in a good place right now where I can balance my career, my writing, and my family. I’d be content maintaining status quo – though there will always be a part of me that wants something more for my novels.
Do you have any go to snacks while writing?
Eating and writing is hard! So it is coffee, tea, water, or soda for me.
If you couldn’t be an author, what would be your next choice for a dream job?
A stay at home mom. 🙂 Between crafts, the gym, volunteering at the schools and neighborhood, and being a Girl Scouts leader I would stay plenty busy.
How long does it usually take you to write a book from plotting to publishing?
Six months, give or take. I am generally able to publish two books per year.
Tell us something fun about yourself, completely unrelated to writing!
I recently got into coloring. I use fancy markers and intricate coloring books, and have ‘coloring’ parties with a fun group of ladies. It is an amazing stress relief!
