Author Emilia Evans


About Emilia – 

Since my early childhood I have always had a passion for reading; I love the Lion, the witch and the wardrobe series of books by C.S Lewis and also the Harry Potter series by J.K.Rowling. The thrill of adventure and fantasy and anything Sci-fi has always intrigued me, and I enjoy all films within those particular genres.

I started writing short stories at first, some adventure, some with a comedy aspect, but over the past two years I have been working on a longer length Sci-fi adventure book ‘Keepers of the light’, which has become a series of four books.
Any time I have ‘writer’s block’ I turn to the piano and play different compositions; it works wonders and afterwards I find inspiration to continue with another chapter or set of ideas.
As I write, I feel as though I am part of the story, and hope that when people read my books, they too will be transported into the adventure.

Questions –

  1. When did realize that you wanted to be an author?

I have always had a love of writing and creating stories, it is a passion I share with my mum and dad who both have always had creative ways of thinking.  I have had different jobs in the past, but writing is something that has always been my dream.  One day I decided to make my dream a reality, you only live once and I wanted to live my life doing the one thing I truly love doing that inspires me and hopefully when people read my books they too will be inspired.

  1. How long does it take for you to write one of your books?

I never focus on how long it takes me as it differs from time to time.  What matters to me is that the story is being told in the best and most interesting way for all readers to enjoy the adventure.  I remember that the first book I wrote for the series I am writing took 10 months to be completed as I had to link certain details to the other books in the series.  It can take time but in the end, it is worth it.

  1. How do you balance your work schedule when you’re busy writing?

Writing is my work and so I will write as much as possible, the story flows naturally.

  1. What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

Before I write anything down I play it out either in my mind or visually.  I see the scenes unfold in many various ways and I keep it on repeat to deduce what should be wrote in the book and what should not.

  1. How do you come up with ideas for your books?

Over active imagination.  I am constantly thinking, and many strange scenarios come to mind, but when I find one that is truly exciting I have to make it real.

      6. When did you write your first book?

When I had just turned 16 I began to immerse myself in writing, I took on different jobs and apprenticeships, but writing was what I wanted to do so I kept writing and it became a book that not soon after turned into a series of which I am on the final book for.

  1. What are your hobbies when you’re not writing?

Music is one of my favourite hobbies it inspires me with different melodies and lyrics.  Music can tell its own story and I always enjoy listening to it play out.  I also enjoy dance mainly for fun and the creative art of it.  Of course, I love to read and enjoy a good movie.  I wouldn’t say I am a shopper only on occasions.  I love being outdoors with nature and running.

  1. What does your family and close friends think of your writing?

They find it very imaginative and creative my sister said it was out of this world, which was ironic considering the series is Sci-Fi adventure.  My Grandma loves it she said she feels like she’s a part of the story as she closely relates to a certain character.  I loved getting feedback from all of them and they truly love my writing which builds up my confidence.  I love it when the readers can enjoy themselves when reading a series of books, they get close to certain characters and are pulled into the adventure themselves.

  1. What was one of the most interesting things that you learned about yourself when you published your first book?

I think I discovered that I am a lot braver than I thought I was, because writing and publishing your books is hard to do, you really put yourself out there, and are judged by many people whether they like it or not.  To find that people did enjoy it was a great feeling.  I cannot wait for more readers to begin reading this series.

  1. How many books have you written? Which one is your favorite?

I began my journey as an author not too long ago in early 2017, the first two books of the series are out now on Amazon and the third will be out in March.  My favourite out of the three would have to be the third now because it shows how each character has grown.  The first book is where the adventure begins and the second is where they are trying to come to terms with this whole new reality they are in that is so different to anything they have faced.  It is an exciting journey they all go on and it takes the readers into a whole new world

  1. What do you think makes a good story?

It should be engaging, and each character should tell their own story.  The readers should be able to relate to different people.  There should always be a main storyline with different plots happening at the same time to keep it interesting.  It should have adventure, friendships, suspense, drama, action and maybe a little romance.  It has to make sense and tell a story that is true to itself that will make the readers want to pick it up again.

  1. Where do you like to kick back and write your books?

When writing my books, I normally have a warm drink to keep me going, I am usually in a quiet place at home but sometimes I can be outside in the fresh air listening to music that inspires me with a new chapter.  Wherever I am I always take a look around and set my mind to work, I imagine a world of my own; I let the thoughts flow in to my mind, that’s where the story begins.
