Happy Friday! Today we’re getting to know Kellie Sheridan, author of The Hitchhiker Strain Series and co-founder of Patchwork Press, Weapenry and Write All Year!
What was the first book you wrote? Published?
Which author do you most look up to?
The authors I most look up to are those who dream big and take the time to try and make a difference within the publishing world. They may not be the authors that I read the most, but they’re absolutely the ones who have made the biggest difference in my life.
What is your ultimate goal as an author?
Ahhh, that’s hard! I guess to have a lifetime career in the publishing industry, both in putting out my own books and making a difference in the indie world. I may look into traditional publishing at some point just because I’d love to explore all corners of the publishing world, but anything there is more of a bonus where as indie publishing is really the goal.
Do you have any go to snacks while writing?
I’m horrible with eating and writing at the same time. Either it’s too distracting, or my fingers get sticky, which is also too distracting. Basically I need to be in a bubble when I’m writing or I get distracted. Tea I can handle though!
If you couldn’t be an author, what would be your next choice for a dream job?
Adventurer! Is that a real job?
How long does it usually take you to write a book from plotting to publishing?
Ahhh, it vaires so much lately. I’ve done a book in six months, I’ve done a book in a year. It really depends how focused I am/how many other things are going on.
Tell us something fun about yourself, completely unrelated to writing!
In the past year or so I’ve achieved my dream of becoming a foster dog parent. We’ve had four pups stay in our house while they’ve been waiting to find their forever homes and it has been a great experience!
