Author Interview – Debbie Heaton

Have you always enjoyed writing? Absolutely—writing empowers me to unleash my imagination and let it run wild!

What motivates you to write? My biggest motivation for writing is the opportunity to step away from day-to-day life and stand in someone else’s shoes for a moment and see life through their eyes.  It may sound a little cliché, but I find inspiration in the people around me whose lives I touch.  In turn these experiences motivate me to take what I have learned from them and instill those qualities into my characters as I write.

What writing are you most proud of? I’m most proud of The Haunting of Wolfe Haven.  I think every writer wants to create something special and I certainly feel that way when I sit down at my lap top.  For me, The Haunting of Wolfe Haven helped me see my potential as a writer.  It has won numerous awards from a 2010 Bronze Medal in ForeWord’s Book of the Year Award to being named an Honorable Mention in the 2013 Eric Hoffer Legacy Award as well as many others.  Each accomplishment has given me greater insight into the book through the eyes of others.  A complete list of the book’s accomplishments can be found on my website at www.debbieaheaton.com

What are you most proud of in your personal life? Without a doubt it’s my daughter, Marsha.  I’ve been privileged to watch her grow into a confident young woman with values and determination.  I am thankful to have her in my life.

What books did you love growing up? I read anything I could get my hands on as a child.  Reading to me was an “adventure” and I couldn’t get enough.  But Wuthering Heights and Gone with the Wind rank on the very top for me.  Wuthering Heights made such an impression on me that I’ve read it more times than I can count!
