Featured Interview With Raimo Strangis
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I am a YA Adult writer from Toronto, Canada. When I am not writing, I work as a certified professional Chef. In my youth, I was a touring rock musician. Aside from writing, I continue to work on my second love, songwriting. I am a father of two beautiful girls who are my inspiration to write.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I remember when the movie, The Princess Bride, came out in 1987 I loved it so much that when I discovered it originated as a book, I had to read it. The book was so amazing I found myself lost in the story. I would have been eight years old at the time, and I've writing my stories ever since.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
William Goldman is one of my favorite authors to read. I love his unique and imaginative characters and I always find myself getting lost in his amazing stories. I enjoy reading Ficition novels and seeing where someones imagination can take us.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My lastest book is a YA/Children's novel titled, The Kingdom of Grape. It is a classic tale of good vs evil. Set in the middle ages, a common messenger boy named Donnie Drake, has fallen in love with the beautiful Princess Jape Grape. Her father, King Earl Grape, has arranged for Jane to marry the ruthless Duke the Red. Not only does Jane not love him, she despises him. It is up to Donnie Drake to become a hero and rescue his true love from the evil Duke. The Kingdom of Grape takes you on an unforgettable journey filled with miracle healers, ancient magic and a poisonous prince.
