Chessy The Cat CTC: Thank you, Linda for taking the time out of your busy schedule to answer a few questions for my readers.

As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?

LB: Even as a little girl I knew I wanted to be a writer. I assumed everyone had stories in their head. Growing up, I realized that was not the case, but it never stopped me. Whenever I had play time I was writing. When my teachers asked me to write a diary for class, I wrote a play instead. I couldn’t stop writing, so why fight it?

CTC: What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?

LB: I was surprised by the amount of pain I had hidden for some scenes. There were times I felt I was proverbially cutting myself to bleed out my feelings in words. Now I realize these feelings are necessary and help me process my emotions as a writer and as a person.

CTC: What do you think makes a good story?

LB: Strong characters. They set the tone and basically write themselves.

CTC: What do you like to do when you’re not writing?

LB: I always feel guilty when I’m not writing, but when I’m not behind the keyboard I enjoy little day trips around my city, Toronto. Just to get away from the traffic of the city in the suburbs is fun enough for me. I love to go to asian malls and ogle the anime toy section. I can spend hours looking at cute stationary or Sailor Moon toys. Throw in some bubble tea and I’m a happy camper. Other than going out, I enjoy spending time with my husband, our two cats, and dog. Even mundane conversations or funny things our animals do can inspire me to write.

CTC: What does your family think of your writing?

LB: They actually don’t know. I was never encouraged to write, and so I haven’t told them. What they don’t know keeps me sane.
