Joi: Tell us a bit about yourself.
Lisa: I’m a wife, mother of three, writer, traveler, friend. More info: LisaTBergren.com
Joi:Why did you start writing? How did you start writing?
Joi: As am I! I love your books!
Lisa: What genre? J So far I’ve written romance, historical women’s fiction, contemporary fiction, supernatural suspense, dystopian, time travel…I like to write whatever inspires me at the time. Something I definitely would NOT recommend to other authors—it’s hard to build an audience that way.
Joi: What is your writing day like?
Lisa: When I write (and I don’t write every day), I usually walk, shower, write for a couple of hours, eat lunch, then write for a couple more hours. The next day, I reread what I wrote, edit and then move on.
Joi: How do you organize your writing? (outlines/note cards/post-its)
Lisa: General outline only. I’m a pantser—I write by the seat of my pants—because I like to see where the story and characters take me.
Joi:What's the most surprising thing a character has “told you”?
Joi:Do you have a list of characters that you're saving for future use? What kind of information do you keep on these characters
Joi:What does your work space/office look like?
Joi: That's funny! Sounds comfortable, though.
Lisa: Soft red licorice.
Joi: If you could only recommend one NOVEL, what would it be? Why?
Lisa: You ask the impossible. J
Joi: So true!
Lisa: Not a book, but back issues of WRITER’S DIGEST at your local library. Tons of relevant, timely information.
Joi: What else would you like to share with the readers?
Thanks for joining us, Lisa!
