Check me out on (Interview and book review)

Interview with Lynette N Roberts author of Princess Atelia and the Wishing Star.

I want to thank you for being my guest here on Mymcbooks Blog.

What is the last book you read? The last book I read was Shutter Island.

What were your earliest memories of writing? When I was eight years old, I wrote my first piece of work; a rap and a cartoon jingle. I still remember both!

Were you encouraged to write or was it something that came natural? Writing comes natural to me. When an idea comes to mind, I write it down.

Are you working on a new book? Yes, I plan to turn Princess Atelia and The Wishing Star into a series book.

What do you do when you’re not writing or promoting your books? Traveling and relaxing. Sometimes going to a different place, brings different perspectives.

How did you come up with each characters? I wanted Atelia to be a reflection of me and every young girl who looks similar to me. Princesses come in many forms, traditional and non traditional.

English teacher got ready to start the lessons. “Good afternoon”, Mrs. Wellington
cheerfully said, “today we are going to have a class discussion on When I grow up,
I want to be a…. “Great”, Atelia depressingly thought to herself. She never
thought about what she wanted to be when she got older. All she cared about was
being ten. After listening to how Sabrina wants to be a nurse like her mom and
how Michael wants to be the most exciting lion tamer of all time, it was now
Atelia’s turn.

She thought and thought and thought some more, but she couldn’t think of what
she wanted to be. She glanced at Mrs. Wellington and saw her impatiently tapping
her fingernails against the desk. With a big smile Atelia blurted out “when I grow
up I want to be a princess!” “A princess!” one of the boys snickered. “Boys can’t
be princesses!” another boy teased. The class roared with laughter.
