Today’s Saturday Interview guest is historical (amongst other genres) novelist Susan Tarr, who should be well-known on this blog by now. Welcome (back) to the hot seat. Please tell us more about yourself as writer and as person.
Much of my personality comes out through my writing. I write in several different genres so whether I am up or down, there’s always some place to write about it.
Living in Kenya for so long, cut off from my New Zealand family, I wrote long letters home. I’d get 1 or 2 pages in return for my 20+ page efforts. Clearly there were no other budding authors in my family.
Did anyone influence you / encourage you to become a writer?
Well, often people would say, Susan, you should write a book. But we know what that means. Anyway I wrote stories from Africa.
How did you come to writing?
