Saving Mary by Deidre Haverlock Blog Tour Interview


Author Deidre Haverlock has stopped by my blog today for her Saving Mary blog tour. Check out her interview!

Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book.
There are things that go on, strange supernatural things, that for your own safety—or the safety of your children—you should know about.

Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects? 
I’m working to finish part two of Saving MaryThe Deliverance. The story of how I became unpossessed. I am also working to edit a book about the femininity of the Holy Spirit, The MotherHeart of God: Biblical Evidence for the Femininity of the Holy Spirit. 

What inspired you to want to become a writer?
My imagination, plus my mom read a lot. At a young age I wanted to write something for her to read, so I wrote The Bloody Dagger in grade three. I’m sure my gory story of a guy who hides in the shadows and chops up people impressed her. I know it impressed my teacher, Mrs. Whalen, who asked, “Don’t you have any happy thoughts?”

Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published.
Just getting finished…getting the editing done, getting the file uploaded to Amazon—without weird formatting errors. Actually, there are still a few weird formatting errors. But still, I’m happy. Oh, and today my first reviews started coming out. It’s sinking in that people are actually going to read my memoir—and some of those people will like it! That’s rewarding. Just recently I gave my ebook away for free and it became the #1 free book under “non-fiction supernatural.’ That was great! It was also number #2 in memoir!

If you could jump in to a book, and live in that world.. which would it be?
I Robot, that was a good book. I’d like to live in a world with robots and all those robot logic problems. I’d like to travel in space, too. I really would like to travel through space!

What is your dream cast for your book?
Hee-hee! That’s a good question. I’d want William Shatner to play my dad and Shirley MacLaine to play the overbearing spiritual leader who kicks me out of meditation group for having bad karma. Oh, and Christian Slater should play my brother, except he’s too old now. We’ll have to dump Christian Slater. Drat!

What was your favorite book when you were a child/teen?
I read all sorts of gothic romances. That’s about all I read. Looking back, I was obviously obsessed with being saved.

Is there a song you could list as the theme song for your book or any of your characters?
How about “Can’t Cry Today” by Saving Mary http://www.myspace.com/savingmaryuk

What's one piece of advice you would give aspiring authors?
Finish your book. Keep working. Enjoy the process. Cry a little.

Quick Questions: Favorite place?
With my family.

Best Christmas present?
I once got this toy dog that did back flips—that was pretty awesome.

Favorite book(s)?
Memoirs, Gothic, theology, Bible.

Favorite author?
Margaret Atwood, maybe.

Favorite smell? Smoke and also flowers.

Favorite series? Star Trek.
