Interview with author Garry Michael

With Yael Waknin

Questions for author Garry Michael

1 – Have you always wanted to be a writer?

No. I didn’t start writing until 2020 during the height of the pandemic. Initially, I wrote to pass the time but fell in love with the whole process of writing. Now that I have a taste of the ‘writing high’, I don’t think I’ll be stopping anytime soon.

2 – When you start a book series – do you know the couples who will appear in the following books? Do you know what the plot will be?

Yes, being a man of science I’m very methodical, and I usually have everything planned (plot, characters, names, and etc.) before I even begin typing.

3 – Did you write a book and decide not to publish it?

No. Thankfully

4 – Is there a topic you will never write about? If so, what is it?

Good question. Never say never, so the answer is ‘no’.

5 – By what do you choose a cover for a book?

I usually study the market for my genre and work from there. I try my best (with my cover designer) to find a model that captures the essence of one of the main characters.

6 – Where did you get the inspiration for the stories?

Personal experience, friends and people I met along the way. If you read any of my books, chances are one of the main heroes is someone I know.

7 – Who is your favorite couple you wrote about?

Ashton and Travis from ‘Break Point’. It’s my debut novel and they will always have a special place in my heart

8 – How long does it take you to write one book?

6 months to a year. I’m always writing two stories simultaneously

9 – What is your favorite genre to read?

Romance. Romance. Romance. And occasionally General Fiction.

10 – If you could turn one of your books into a movie – which book would you choose?

It would be ‘All the White Lies We Tell’. Because it has great secondary characters
