Indie Author Spotlight – Lenore Sagaskie and “Spring Equinox”

Indie Author Spotlight – Lenore Sagaskie and “Spring Equinox”

I’m thrilled to be featuring another great indie author this morning: Lenore Sagaskie…

Lenore has always been passionate about writing from an early age.  One of her first books she wrote as a youth is Good Luck Bad Luck,  which is a family favorite.

Lenore is a free-lance writer and was also a staff writer for the Emmett Village News where she was known locally by her readers for her monthly community articles.

Lenore’s passion also extends into the art world, where she likes to create in pencil, pen & ink, metal smithing and mixed media.

She was the president of the Richmond Area Art Association for many years.  During her tenure she was dedicated to exposing the community to local artists through art exhibitions; thereby generating interest in the visual arts.

Lenore served in the armed forces; holding the rank of Sergeant.  She has pursued her dream of writing since retiring from the Armed Forces.

Lenore currently lives in Michigan with her loving family: her husband, Dan and her two sons, Hunter and Archer.

She has a supportive family; especially her sister Denise.

You can follow her at her website, on Twitter, Facebook, Amazon and  Goodreads

And here’s her book…

One drawn to air.

You can buy it on Amazon, on CreateSpace and in the iTunes Bookstore.

AND, I’ve also got a great interview with Lenore…

Who is your favorite author?

My favorite fantasy writer is Terry Prachett. I love his Discworld books, particularly Men at Arms. I recently started reading Jim Butcher’s series.  I recently read The Black Parade by Kyoko M (a fellow Goodreads author) and her work blew me away.  My favorite Science Fiction author is Robert J. Sawyer.

 

How do you describe your writing style?

I’m not sure what my writing style is, so I’m going with Ninja. It’s my go to answer.

 

Use no more than two sentences. Why should we read your book?

My book has some interesting fantasy characters and the action moves at a decent pace. It also contains no unicorns or sparkly vampires.

 

Have any of your characters been modeled after yourself?

A few of my friends have remarked that Abby, the fire vessel is a lot like me. I do metal-smithing art, and I do enjoy fire. I work with it and I am learning Poi Fire dancing. I think Abby exercises more restraint than I do.

 

If you could exchange lives with any of your characters for a day which character would you choose and why?

I would like to be Sara, the air vessel. She is well liked, fun to be with and she can fly. I think flying would be cool.

 

What books have most influenced your life?

A lot of books! I read all the Nancy Drew books, the Hardy Boys books and Tales of the Arabian Nights by the time I was 9 years old. My uncles owned a used book store and when I discovered Tolkien, Jules Verne, Asimov and Phillip K. Dick, my eyes glazed over. I spent all my free time there. How lucky was I?

 

If you could select one book that you could rewrite and add your own unique twist on, which book would that be and why?

After giving it much thought, I think it would be interesting to rewrite Homer’s Odyssey and give it a steampunk twist.

 

Beatles or Monkees? Why?

The Monkees! Because they were too busy singing to put anybody down!

 

Who should play you in a film of your life?

Minnie Driver. Everyone always says l look like her and ask me if we’re related.
