Interview With Author Barbara Sontheimer
Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
My debut novel, Victor's Blessing is launching November, 15 2022.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
I have always been fascinated by the Civil War and the idea of brother against brother.
I also wanted to tell a story more from the North's perspective.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I literally write in a closet with no windows. The folding chairs and vacuum and I are good friends!
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Maeve Binchy, Emily Bronte, Anita Shreve, David Guterson, Charles Frazier
What are you working on now?
A three part series starting in 1781 with a boat of eligible females that land in Biloxi Mississippi from France as prospective brides.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I am not sure. All I know is that the research and writing are the EASY part! There are a lot of titles released every single week, and even if you have a STELLAR story it still may be lost among the mayhem.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
I am still new myself and learning something everyday.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
What other people think of you is none of your business.
What are you reading now?
Forces, and novel by a friend of mine.
What’s next for you as a writer?
More writing because truly it is a labor of love.
