Laura Moverin – Author Spotlight

Hello everyone! Today we had the lovely Laura Moverin speak with us about her writing.

We asked her how long she has been writing and who (or what) got her started. She said she has been writing her entire life. She said one of her teachers, Helen Hanson, was a great influence, particularly in poetry.

We discussed being her being an Indie Author, and this is what she had to say: “I’m probably a bit of a maverick and I’ve never been that wise in business so I guess you could say this is the likely place I would land.”

When we asked if she had been published, she told us that we could find her in Fudoki Magazine and a number of poetry journals. She also has a website, 4love alone, here on WordPress.

We asked her about where she lives, what her hobbies are, and if she has any pets. She told us she lives in Brisbane, Queensland. She loves to dabble in art with mixed media and has three cats named Ember, Jasper, and Bliss.

We had a nice talk about writer’s block and if she ever deals with it. She said she does and she deals with it by switching back and forth between painting and writing. She never loses her connection with the creative spark, it just takes different forms. She also believes that it is okay to have fallow times where you rest and regenerate. And we totally agree!

Make sure you share this post with your friends and check out her website – 4love alone- here on WordPress!

Author Spotlight – the soul whispers blog

Today we are looking at https://thesoulwhispersblog.com A beautiful blog filled with poetry and self reflection. She says that “Blogging has provided me with a creative outlet and opportunity to connect with other indie authors. I love being a part of the indie writing community.”

When we asked what or who got you started? She responded “I started writing a blog 5 years ago with the hopes of feeling heard. I’m an introvert with a very busy mind. Writing is a creative expression of my inner reflections on experiences, emotional health and spiritual understanding.”

A Canadian blogger who enjoys nature, strong coffee and time with her pup (A Yorkie named Winston). She also loves traveling and experiencing the world through different culture, architecture, food and landscapes. Her creative husband has toured with multiple musicians.

She says of getting writer’s block : “Writer’s block is part of the process. When I experience writer’s block I give myself the time I need to ‘not write.’ At the same time, I also charge through the feelings of self-doubt and questioning by writing in my journal – knowing that I am free to write non-sense, make mistakes, and that a gem may appear in the mess.”

Author Spotlight – Cait Marie

Cait Marie is a good friend, a wonderful person, and an amazing author. I have been lucky to work with her in Coffee House Writers. She is one of the busiest people I know. She works at Functionally Fictional and at YA Books Central. She also somehow manages to do a blog of her own.

She does all of this while in College, being a freelance editor, and producing her own books. I have personally been allowed to be one of her ARC readers in the past. Her books are so well written. I have definitely enjoyed what I have read by her.

When we asked her about what got her started, Cait had this to say. “I started writing one day partially out of boredom and partially because a book I read didn’t go exactly how I wanted it to. I decided to write my own book so I could include anything I wanted, but I had no idea at the time that I would end up here. I only wrote academically before that and hated it. However, I have always loved reading. My love of books is really what got me where I am today. It’s why I started Functionally Fictional, which led to me becoming involved in the book community.”

When asked why She chose to be a Indie, Here is Cait’s response. “Through Functionally Fictional, I work with indie authors to promote their books. Then I started working as part of the indie staff at YA Books Central, and I kind of fell into this amazing group of authors. They were so encouraging, and I saw the support they had for one another, and it really made me decide on this route. Plus, I like the control aspect of it all. It’s my book, and it’s getting out into the world how I want it to.”

About her hobbies and such ,”Most of my time goes to reading and writing, but I also love creating spreads in my bullet journal, painting, listening to music, going to concerts, and watching movies and TV.” When asked how she deals with Writer’s Block her response was “I don’t really suffer from writer’s block per se. It’s more that I have some days I just can’t/don’t want to write. I’m working on more consistent writing habits. For example, I am trying to write for an hour at least four days a week. I joined a group that does writing sprints four nights a week, which is helping a lot.”

Cait lives in Indiana with her two obnoxious cats – Koda and Azriel, Whom she loves greatly. We here at Fae Corps look forward to seeing what Cait Marie will be doing in the future. Be sure to check her current listings at https://caitmarieh.com/my-books/

Author Spotlight Beverly L Anderson

First I apologize to all of the authors who have been on hold for months. We had to showcase the anthology authors and this got put on hold as I was too busy to do what needed done. I am back at it. I will be going through one a week on Thursday until I get you all.

We are starting with the amazing Beverly L Anderson. Her answers to our questions tightly match the Bio on her Amazon page. And I found the Bio more fun…so I am sharing it. Her books look pretty and have some neat ideas behind them. She said that she, when faced with writer’s block just changes to something else until it passes.

Beverly L. Anderson started writing at the age of eleven, and when she did it was obvious she wasn’t going to stick to the every day. Her first story, written in a series of spiral notebooks, was about a kidnapping. There’s no surprise that these days, she favors the dark corners of the psyche over the happy and fluffy parts. To better understand the mind of her characters, Beverly specialized in psychology and counseling in school, and holds a master’s degree in the latter.

Beverly’s other hobbies include gaming of all types, transgender and autism advocacy, and writing fanfiction. She herself has gone on the journey of self-discovery in the last few years, finally pinning down her identity after nearly thirty years of searching. Coming out as bigender and pansexual was one of the hardest things she’s ever done, but it gave her the confidence to become herself even more. An autistic parent of two autistic kids, and an eclectic pagan, Beverly finds herself at odds with a lot of what society calls “normal”. Her interest in the BDSM community began as simple curiosity, but has led her to the road to finding a place for herself there as a switch.

We are glad to spotlight Beverly and hope that she continues to produce books to brighten this world.
