Author Interview- P.D. Atkerson

Hi my lovelies! This week we are joined by the lovely P.D.

She is quickly becoming my favorite author. She has several books already out and published- “Of the Stars” series, “AKA Simon Lee” series, as well as others. I will have reviews for many of her books coming out in the following weeks. However, I cannot describe her better than the way she does in her bio. So without further introduction, I shall let her announce herself and then we will proceed with the interview!

“P.D. Atkerson is a homeschooled writer, living in Montana. She spends almost as much time in the worlds she creates as she does the real one. 
When she’s not reporting the stories of her agents, she’s making cakes, learning different languages, or traveling to different worlds through the portals of books. 
She has a black belt in sarcasm and a master’s degree in useless facts.”

Thanks so much for joining us this week P.D. !

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

I dont think there was a specific moment. I just started and haven’t stopped.

What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?

The weekends and evenings are when I write the most, though I sometimes write in the morning if I get up early enough.

What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

Oh, uh… I’m honestly not sure. I know I have some quirks, but I doubt any of them are interesting. 

Where do you get your inspiration for your books?

I’d have to say books and movies. If we end up watching too much of a certain kind of genre, that’s usually what I end up writing.

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

Super original, but I’d have to say reading. 🙂

What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books? How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

(I’m going to assume you mean research wise? Let me know if that’s not what you meant) That you don’t actually have to keep someone awake if they’re losing blood? LOL I’ve learned a lot of useless facts, I’m not sure they’re all that interesting. Oh! Or maybe the fact that twenty percent of museum paintings are fake. 😉

I think the counts somewhere around thirty, counting several short stories I’ve written. 

*Gasps* I couldn’t possible choose a favorite! {But the Phantom Thief and Smoke Screen have a special place in my heart ;P}

What is the first book that made you cry? What do you think makes a good story?

I’m not actually sure a book’s ever made me cry, at least, not that I can remember. 

I’d have to say the characters.

Do you have any suggestions to help me become a better writer? If so, what are they?

I’m still figuring this out myself, but I guess I’d have to say: Make sure you love it, find your thing and go for it, because at the end of the day that’s all that really matters.

Wow P.D. That was amazing! That last answer really gets to me. Thank you so much again for joining us here on the blog. And thank you my lovelies for checking in. What did you think of this interview? What questions would you ask? Let me know in the comments! See you next time!
