Interview of Jen Selinsky

I recently was interviewed by Jen Selinsky for her blog. Knowing that she was an author as well I asked her to share about herself, answering the same questions that she asked me. If you'd like to read her interview of me on her blog then please feel free to follow this link. It will open up in a new window.

Shall we get to Jen's interview?


Interview of Jen Selinsky


How old were you when you knew you wanted to be a writer?
I think I had a feeling as young as age twelve, but I didn’t take my writing seriously until I was fifteen.  From there, my passion grew, and it continues to grow as I set out to achieve my dream.

Who are your favorite authors? (Please limit your answer to five or ten.)
Some of my favorite authors are: Stephen King, Victor Hugo, Janet Evanovich, Sylvia Plath, Jim Morrison, Emily Dickinson, James Patterson, and Mark Twain.  Of course, it’s hard to limit myself to only five or ten.

What are your greatest sources of inspiration?
One of my biggest sources of inspiration is music.  Even though I am very picky about my tunes, I have written various pieces while listening to some of my favorites over the years: Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, The Doors, Duran Duran, Deep Purple, and Genesis just to name a few!  Of course, that list goes on as well!

What genre(s) do you write?
I started out writing poetry, but I have expanded to include many different genres.  I have even self-published two coloring books which I drew myself.  I am also working on a third one.

 Do you have any current or future projects?
I have too many to name!  The one I just mentioned is my third coloring book.  I also have three cookbooks in the works, as well as a few novels, short stories, and many more poems.

Do you have an author website?
My author website is Jen Selinsky, which is my official site. It includes links to all my books, as well as direct URLs to some of my interviews and other published works.

Do you have any blogs?
I have this blog, which is one thing I am very glad to have started.  I also have one on my Goodreads page, as well as two other WordPress blogs, Jen’s Good Reads and Genesis: Inside and Out.

Where can people find your work?  (to purchase or just to read)
People can search my name to find my work on the following sites:

If you could just feature one title, what would it be? 
I would like to feature Bunny’s Song because it is my first traditionally published title.  People can purchase it through Amazon or Pen It! Publications. It’s a great book, especially for children.

Do you have any pseudonyms?
Nope, I like to use my real name whenever possible.

Do you have any other hobbies besides writing?
I like to exercise, draw, paint, listen to music, play video games, and spend time with my family and friends.

Tell us something interesting about yourself.
I’m related to the late stage and film actor, Robert Prosky, on my father’s side.

Is there anything else you would like to share?
I’m glad that I have started this blog.  My main aim is to help authors discover each other while drawing others to view their work.  I also want to thank each and every one of you for helping me achieve this!
