Interview with G.E. Stills

 

1. Welcome, G.E. Stills. For those who might not be familiar with you, would you be a dear and tell the readers a little about yourself? How did you get your start in the writing business?
 
(GARY)  I’ve been writing stories off and on for longer than I care to think about but mainly for my own pleasure. It’s just something I enjoy doing. I started writing with the intent of being published around 2003 at the urging of several friends. It was at that time I began the long and often disheartening journey to becoming a multi-published author. I, like so many authors, have a lengthy list of rejections to show for it and I certainly don’t do it for the money. One great bonus I have gained during my writing journey is many wonderful friends.
 
 
 
2.  All writers fear the dreaded “block”. Please tell us how you handle it.
 
(GARY)  Usually I just shift my efforts from one WIP to another. I read the works of others visit with friends or cruise the internet too.
 
 
 
3. Contrary to what some people envision about a romance writer’s life, it’s not all glitz and glam. Well not for the majority of us. With that bubble sadly busted, when you’re not writing, how to do you spend your time?
 
(GARY)  I lead a pretty mundane life. I take and pick up two of my granddaughters from school daily. I do day to day activities and I usually cook supper. I host a local writers group every two weeks at a local book store. In the summer I enjoy boating, I like watching movies and of course reading. I know boring to the maximum.
 
 
 
4. I know many writers, such as Dirk and myself, keep their pastime/career a secret. Do those close to you know you write? If so, what are their thoughts?
 
(GARY)  Most of my close friends know I write. Some approve of what I write and others don’t. The ones that don’t approve try to ignore what I do. That’s fine with me.
 
 
 
5. Will you share with us your all time favorite authors? If you’re like me, it’s a long list so give us your top ten.
 
(GARY)  Author C Clark, David Weber, John Ringo, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Anne McCaffrey, Dean Koonz, Anya Bast, Cheyenne McCray, Larry Niven and Charles Sheffield
 
 
 
6. If you could choose one book to go to the big screen, yours or otherwise, which book would you choose and whom would you love see casted in the parts?
 
(GARY)  Of course most of us would like to see one (or more) of our books made into a movie but mine would require a lot of deleting to be shown anywhere other than in adult theaters. Lol There are too many books I’ve read that I think would make great movies to choose just one. As for actors and actresses, I think ones that are not famous already but fit the part in looks and actions.
 
 
 
7. Would you care to tell us what you’re working on now? That is if it’s not top secret information. If so, just whisper it in my ear. I swear it’ll go no further. 
 
(GARY)  I’m currently working on a science fiction story which I hope to submit this week. It takes place here on earth. Aliens have invaded. It has action and romantica and mainly involves three couples.
 
 
 
8. Where can we find your stories and is there a particular reading order?
 
(GARY)  All of my currently published stories are available here Amazon Author Page
 
 
9. Would you please share how your present and future fans can contact you?
 
(GARY)  I can be contacted at any of these places:
 
 
 
10. Before we wrap up this enlightening interview, do you have anything else you’d like to share? The stage is all yours.
 
(GARY)  If you have that burning desire to write then do so. Don’t be like so many and just talk about writing.  I would also like to thank Kameron for graciously allowing me to be here. Write on everyone.
 
 
 
There you have it, ladies and gents. I want to again thank G.E. Stills for stopping by and sparring a few minutes in his hectic day for little ole’ me. As always, it was a pleasure chatting with you. Until next time….
