-Vincent Lowry

Interview:

1) What is your author name and in what state do you live (or country if not in the US)?
Christine Reynebeau, Wisconsin
2) What is the title of your newest book and what is the genre?
Home, Children’s Books
3) What is the book about?
Change and how to handle transitions
4) Where did you come up with the idea?
I had a friend recommend writing a book about moving, and when I asked what the lesson in that would be, she said that change can be okay. And I’ve always been bad at change, so helping others to practice the skill early felt important.
5) How long did it take you to write it?
Probably about 6 hours over the course of two to three months.
6) Did you learn anything from the project?
Every time I work with a new illustrator I learn different ways to manage a project and work with different people to bring my story to life.
7) Do you have an author website and/or blog? How about a book video?
8) Do you have any success tips to pass on to fellow authors? How about any great editors/cover artists?
My biggest advice is to do your research, protect yourself and don’t let anyone pigeonhole you in a publishing journey that doesn’t fit you.
9) What genres do you like to read? Are you open to reading new authors and reviewing their work?
I love a good fiction novel, and always I am open to reading from new authors and reviewing work, it’s so important for authors to support each other.
10) What is your favorite book of all time and why?
That’s so tough, but They Poured Fire on Us from the Sky by Benjamin Ajak. Because it is a story of human will to survive and the best lesson of my life, I learned from that book. There’s a beautiful humanity those portrayed in the desire to simply survive. And while I have never been faced with the risk of not surviving, it is always humbling to remind ourselves how capable and determined our bodies are to survive.
11) Fun Question: Do you have any pets? If so, what kind?
Walter, he is a German Shepard/Terrier Mix and featured in two of my books!
12) Fun Question 2: Do you own an electronic reading device? If so, what kind and how do you like it?
Absolutely not, I have never been able to get on board with electronic reading devices. I do produce ebooks, but I personally like hard copy books. I’m an old soul.
