If you have not yet met children’s author Darlene Foster then here is your chance. She is interviewed by Don Massenzio.
Now, please enjoy this interview with Darlene Foster:
Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?
I try to do a bit of both. I certainly want to be original but not to be so out of touch that nobody will read my books. On the other hand, I am not interested in writing about zombies, even if that happens to be the current trend. I have to write what I´m comfortable with. There aren’t many books for kids about travel and I believe that by throwing in an adventure and/or a mystery, the books appeal to today’s tweens. I recently got this email from a young reader which was very encouraging; Hi Darlene my name is Kynn and my auntie gave me three of your books and they are some of my favourite books. Please keep writing and she will keep buying.
