Featured Interview With SHARON BUCHBINDER
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
Born in Washington, DC, raised in Windsor Locks, CT, moved to Albany, NY, Chicago, IL, as a trailing spouse and have moved to our furrever home here in Baltimore, MD. We have 2 cats, both Maine Coons and 2 dogs, a pug and a pitbull. The pug is in charge. 🙂
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I've always been a story teller and got in trouble for it as a child. I learned if I WROTE the stories down, then they weren't called LIES. LOL. I've been writing since I could hold a pencil and have the rejection slips to prove it!
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I'm an omnivore–and multimedia one at that. I listen to audiobooks daily on my dog walks or driving to work. I read on my ereader on the plane–I never run out of books to read! And I mark up my favorite passages in print books which are mostly non-fiction. The last audiobook I listened to was about a serial killer, before that a retelling of the gospels, my ereader contains mystery, horror, romance, romantic suspense, paranormal romantic suspense–and I'm in the middle of a young adult story, too. I read or listen to 2-3 books at a time and get my story time in wherever I go. Because, it's all about the story, isn't it? Inspiration comes to me in stories about real people who demonstrate extraordinary abilities. I'm fascinated by family secrets, secret government agencies, truth, justice and redemption.
