An Interview with Author Erin Taylor Young

Welcome to Readers Write to Know! I asked you, my readers, what questions they would ask their favorite authors if given the chance. This week, I’m thrilled to have Erin Taylor Young as my guest. Her book, Surviving Henry: Adventures in Loving a Canine Catastrophe, sounds hysterical. I so admire authors who can write humor. I appreciate humor, and can scatter it throughout my books in dialogue, but I can’t just straight up write humor. That’s hard work.

I also love that one of her young crushes was John Denver. I remember my 4th or 5th grade year, our grade had a music program. One of our songs was “Grandma’s Featherbed” by John Denver. The boy that was supposed to sing the solo verses of that song was sick, and I was the only kid in the entire grade who knew all of the words to the verses, so I had to sing them. (1) I’m not a boy (heh) (2.) I can’t sing. Seriously. I’m a terrible singer. My autistic son will hold his ears when I sing. So, that was certainly an adventure – for me AND the audience. Weren’t my parents surprised?

Please enjoy Erin’s interview as much as I did.

30 Days of Thankfulness Day 10

I have a love-hate relationship with social media. I hate it because it sucks my life away. In order to have a presence there, you must be a presence there. So, when I could be doing a million other things, I have to be present.

I love it because I have made so many incredible friends through social media (including meeting my husband in a long ago pioneer form of social media called an AOL chat room). I also know that I know that if it weren’t for social media, this blog and my writing career would only have a fraction of the success they’ve had.

Saturday Mornings

Saturday mornings are my quiet mornings. Gregg and Kaylee typically sleep in – they’re the sleepers of the family. The boys don’t really sleep in (5:30 this morning), but once they’re up and I feed them (the only morning of the week I give them cold cereal), I put in a full length feature film for them (Spider-Man 3 this morning), and spend the next 90-120 minutes surfing Pinterest uninterrupted.
