I recently had the honor of being one of the guest’s on the International Club of the Riviera’s radio broadcast (currently online), for an interview about my recently published book, available for purchase on Amazon as an e-book or paperback.
Below is a synopsis of the interview, which I hope will inspire you to follow your life journey, wherever it may lead! Bon courage!
ICR: What is the working title of your book?
“Solitary Desire – One Woman’s Journey to France”
ICR: Where did the idea come from for the book?
I wanted to tell my personal story, in the hope of inspiring others to follow their desires and dreams and to show how taking small steps can lead to a path towards an end goal.
ICR: What genre does your book fall under?
Non-fiction, as a memoire, but also a travelogue/love story.
ICR: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Stories of self discovery through a personal life journey; perhaps, “Under the Tuscan Sun.”
ICR: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
I should be so lucky to have this choice, but in dreaming of this possibility, I would pick Meryl Streep – especially since she can dance – this comment is self-explanatory in reading the book.
ICR: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
An amusing story of self-discovery through life choices, while striving for one’s dream.
ICR: Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
To be self-published as an indie e-book, with print-on-demand option. I am also hoping to publish my e-book in French and as an audio book.
ICR: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I started writing a few chapters ten years ago, but then put it aside due to life events, and now have completed this personal journey memoire.
ICR: Who or What inspired you to write this book?
It was during a stay in Paris, that I decided to write about my experiences.
ICR: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
Love, self-discovery, and inspiration to persevere, irregardless of time constraints and life events, in going after personal goals. Success in striving for one’s dream is measured along the way and in many ways – it’s not always about getting from point A to point B.
