When Rebecca Besser is not busy writing and/or editing, she is formatting book covers, building/maintaining websites, and writing book reviews.

1.) When did you first get serious about writing?

A.) 2007/2008 when I signed up for my writing course at the Institute of Children’s Literature.

2.) What is the hardest part for you about writing?

A.) Time. I’m a wife and mother, and I work at home. Sometimes getting the time I need to just write is hard to find.

3.) How did you feel upon publication of your first completed project?

A.) Excited and relieved at the same time. Excited because of the publication and relieved because something I was working on is finished.

4.) What is more important to you, story, or character? Why?

A.) Plot, characters, pacing…it all matters. There has to be an appropriate blend of each to make any story work successfully. You can’t actually say one element is more important than any of the others, because if you focus too much on one rather than having a balance of them all, your story won’t be as good.

5.) What is a typical day like in your world?

A.)  I get up, take out the dog, get my son up and ready for school, take him to school, come home, and work/write (taking breaks to take the dog out and eat). Then I pick my son up from school in the afternoon, make sure he does his homework, and make supper. We all (hub, son, and I) sit down and eat supper together, then we settle to watch TV between showers before bed. So…I’m livin’ the family life. ;)
