Laura Moverin – Author Spotlight

Hello everyone! Today we had the lovely Laura Moverin speak with us about her writing.

We asked her how long she has been writing and who (or what) got her started. She said she has been writing her entire life. She said one of her teachers, Helen Hanson, was a great influence, particularly in poetry.

We discussed being her being an Indie Author, and this is what she had to say: “I’m probably a bit of a maverick and I’ve never been that wise in business so I guess you could say this is the likely place I would land.”

When we asked if she had been published, she told us that we could find her in Fudoki Magazine and a number of poetry journals. She also has a website, 4love alone, here on WordPress.

We asked her about where she lives, what her hobbies are, and if she has any pets. She told us she lives in Brisbane, Queensland. She loves to dabble in art with mixed media and has three cats named Ember, Jasper, and Bliss.

We had a nice talk about writer’s block and if she ever deals with it. She said she does and she deals with it by switching back and forth between painting and writing. She never loses her connection with the creative spark, it just takes different forms. She also believes that it is okay to have fallow times where you rest and regenerate. And we totally agree!

Make sure you share this post with your friends and check out her website – 4love alone- here on WordPress!

Author Spotlight – Cait Marie

Cait Marie is a good friend, a wonderful person, and an amazing author. I have been lucky to work with her in Coffee House Writers. She is one of the busiest people I know. She works at Functionally Fictional and at YA Books Central. She also somehow manages to do a blog of her own.

She does all of this while in College, being a freelance editor, and producing her own books. I have personally been allowed to be one of her ARC readers in the past. Her books are so well written. I have definitely enjoyed what I have read by her.

When we asked her about what got her started, Cait had this to say. “I started writing one day partially out of boredom and partially because a book I read didn’t go exactly how I wanted it to. I decided to write my own book so I could include anything I wanted, but I had no idea at the time that I would end up here. I only wrote academically before that and hated it. However, I have always loved reading. My love of books is really what got me where I am today. It’s why I started Functionally Fictional, which led to me becoming involved in the book community.”

When asked why She chose to be a Indie, Here is Cait’s response. “Through Functionally Fictional, I work with indie authors to promote their books. Then I started working as part of the indie staff at YA Books Central, and I kind of fell into this amazing group of authors. They were so encouraging, and I saw the support they had for one another, and it really made me decide on this route. Plus, I like the control aspect of it all. It’s my book, and it’s getting out into the world how I want it to.”

About her hobbies and such ,”Most of my time goes to reading and writing, but I also love creating spreads in my bullet journal, painting, listening to music, going to concerts, and watching movies and TV.” When asked how she deals with Writer’s Block her response was “I don’t really suffer from writer’s block per se. It’s more that I have some days I just can’t/don’t want to write. I’m working on more consistent writing habits. For example, I am trying to write for an hour at least four days a week. I joined a group that does writing sprints four nights a week, which is helping a lot.”

Cait lives in Indiana with her two obnoxious cats – Koda and Azriel, Whom she loves greatly. We here at Fae Corps look forward to seeing what Cait Marie will be doing in the future. Be sure to check her current listings at https://caitmarieh.com/my-books/

Love – Purest Enigma

What path does love choose Does it choose only to exchange bodily fluids Can it be a simple gesture of thoughtfulness Perhaps it chooses to entwine itself around its lover’s soul Does love exist It’s not tangible You can’t pick it up It has no shape, and you can’t see it It doesn’t make a […]
