Author Spotlight Emily Nicole

“One thing I learned about myself during the writing process of Touched was the importance of time. finding time to do the things that are important to you(in my case, writing this novel), and then using every second of that time to your advantage.”

Getting published is the goal of most writers. This author’s story is proof that persistence pays off.

Let’s get right to it.

1.) Tell us a little about yourself. 

My name is Emily Nicole, I’m 38, and before I was an author I was studying Pre-Med and Psychology. I’ve been writing for over 20 years now, and Complexities of Human Emotions: Touched; is my first published novel in the Complexities of Human Emotions series.

2.)Tell us what your book, Touched, is all about.
Touched tells the story of a wife and mother, Tiana Reed, who is forced to confront her past (and possibly risk her future) after the reappearance of an estranged relative.

3.) What was the inspiration for this book?
In all honesty-my observations on life. I don’t want to say too much because I don’t want to give the book away, but…my observations on life-my own and the lives of others.

4.) What was the hardest thing about writing Touched?
The hardest thing about writing Touched was finding the TIME to write it. I was working a 9 to 5 at the time and by the time I came home, it was dinner then bed. Finding the time was definitely the hardest.

5.) What was one thing you learned about yourself while writing this book?
One thing I learned about myself during the writing process of Touched was the importance of time. finding time to do the things that are important to you (in my case, writing this novel), and then using every second of that time to your advantage.

6.) Describe your book in one line.
Emotional

7.)  What was the inspiration for your book?
A young woman who I worked with at the time was my inspiration for the novel. I didn’t and still don’t know anything about her or her life personally, but the way she carried herself inspired this novel.

8.) What advice do you have for aspiring writers?
It took me 11 years to get published-don’t give up. Keep writing. Keep going.

9.) Where can readers buy your book?
 amazon.com, barnesandnoble.com, and complexitiesofhumanemotions.com
