Everyone welcome Renata Pavrey! She has been writing all of her life and writes short stories, poetry, and is a blogger. We asked her what started her writing, and her answer was: “I love reading and have been surrounded by books all my life. Writing has been an extension of my reading.”
We discussed being an Indie Author and this was why she chooses to be one: “I’m not from a literature or journalism background. Coming from the science field (I have a Masters in Nutrition and Dietetics), the writing and publishing industries are completely different arenas for me. Becoming an Indie author was more of an unconscious decision of merging my love for the written word and bringing that out to readers. I’m quite clueless about literary agents and how to navigate publishing houses.” She has short stories, poetry, essays, articles and artwork published across books, journals and magazines. Some of the anthologies that feature my work come from: Raven & Drake Publishing, Black Ink Fiction, Sweety Cat Press, Ghost Orchid Press, Her Voice.
She lives in India and currently has 2 cats and 3 foster kittens. Her hobbies include: reading, writing, gardening, dancing, going for long walks and runs, playing with her pets, and watching movies.
We discussed writer’s block and when she suffers she takes a break and does something else – work out, paint, plant seeds, click pictures of the pets and plants, or read a book in a completely different genre from what I’m writing.
