Elizabeth Ellen, the author of Where Are They All Now, released her book in May 2019. We wanted to catch up with the new author and see how life had been treating her since she was published.
1. Did you always dream of becoming an author?
Not at all. I was far too busy to contemplate being shut away writing all day, which is the way I saw an author’s life.
2. What was your first job?
3. How did you come about writing your book? Was that your intention or did you start writing for fun?
It started out as just something to fill my boring day in, never intending it to ever become a book. Working for the same company for many years gave me plenty of opportunity to regale stories about specific events and tales leaving my colleagues to say ‘you should write a book’. So I thought - why not?
4. What was your life like before you became an author?
I have always had a full time job, looking after a family and all the things that go with family life.
5. Did you face any struggles before becoming an author? If so, how did you overcome them?
6. Now that you are a published author, how has your life changed, if at all?
No, my life has carried on as before although now retired and enjoying that pension everyone dreams of having one day.
7. Can you please describe a typical day in your life now?
What is a typical day? Being retired it is a lot different to what my typical day used to be. Now I get up, get ready, have breakfast, walk to the local shop for the paper, if staying at home the usual household chores, prepare food, do the washing, ironing, gardening maybe, read, spend time on my iphone answering emails, Facebook, Twitter etc. and watch TV.
I may decide to go to Liverpool on the bus, or Manchester on the train. Maybe further afield for a day out or a couple of days away.
Holidays feature in my life a lot so planning where to go, how to get there, what to do, will also feature a lot in my life.
8. What is your most memorable moment of your life as an author?
The day I received an email confirming that my book had been accepted for publication and was becoming a reality.
9. In a few words, how would you review your experience with Pegasus Publishers?
Excellent, I had no idea what to expect but they have walked me through every step of the way.
10. Why did you choose Pegasus Publishers?
As a proof reader for Pegasus it seemed the obvious route for me to try first.
