My ReadRantRock&Roll Interview!
For those of you who didn't notice or get to read it yet, I gave an interview for ReadRantRock&Roll blog about books, music, movies and more...!
After reading and reviewing my novella A World Without Color, Mischenko, the author of ReadRantRock&Roll, asked me if I would like to do a Q&A for her blog, which I happily accepted.
In about herself and her blog Mischenko explains: I created this blog to talk about the books that I read, music that I listen to, health matters, movies, and other things that interest me. I love doing Q&A's and learning about others. I use the word “rant” for anything that I want to talk about, especially things that I feel passionate about.
I am privileged and happy that she feels passionate enough about my book to write a review about it and ask me 21 questions for her blog!
She starts the Q&A with me with the introduction: A few weeks ago I came across a book on Goodreads titled A World Without Color: A True Story Of the Last Three Days With My Cat and knew right away I needed to read it. It’s a memoir written by Bernard Jan pertaining to the loss of his beloved cat Marcel. Bernard was very kind to offer some of his time to discuss his writing and some other questions I had about the book. You can see my Q&A with Bernard Jan below.
Please visit ReadRantRock&Roll blog for my answers to Mischenko's questions.
As a teaser, I'm sharing with Mischenko's permission my answer to her first question!
Q: When did you first start writing and when did you first think about becoming an author?
A: My first writing steps started already in the elementary school when, at a very early age, I flirted with the Croatian and English language, books, school assignments in literature and writing when I did rather well.
My first book, though, I wrote at the beginning of war in Croatia in 1991, amidst the air alerts and illusory attempts when I wanted to believe and think life is normal, that everything is all right with the world. That was the time when madness controlled our lives and we all walked on the thin line between life and death. So the war was just a trigger that took my writing to a higher level and its full potential. I wrote my first two novels as the testament of the time that has influenced so much of everyone’s life here.
Happy reading and THANK YOU, Mischenko!
