Author Interview with Juanita Destra

Q: When did you know you wanted to be an author?

A: Since I was in High School. The passion was always there.
Q: Where did you  get the inspiration for Fluffy the Bird?
A: The inspiration comes from dreams, music, and everyday interactions with the world.
Q: What is your editing process like?
A: It is fun. Ronald Destra will edit the book  three times, I would go through the editing process two times and our in house editor will put the final editing touch to it about two or three times. The reason we take pride in the editing process, we want to provide the best book on the market so our readers can appreciate our works.
Q: What was the most challenging part of writing this book?
A: Distraction. I sometime can easily get distracted and lose focus. But, I always rebound  back and complete the project at hand.
Q: Did you set any writing goals for 2014? Did you accomplish any, so far?
A: My writing goal since 2013, was to publish both children books, Fluffy the Bird & Scrappy the Dog in 2014; we accomplished that so far.
Q: Are you working on something at the moment?

A: I knew I wanted to be an author after I won several essay contests; I knew then I could take my writing to the next level.
Q: Where did you get the inspiration for Fluffy the Bird?
A: My inspiration comes from my imagination, childhood memories and dreams.
Q: What is your editing process like?
A: Words can not describe it but I will try. Hectic! I will usually go through the editing process three times, my co-author will edit the book three times and the company in house editor will review the manuscript twice so we may have a perfect error free book.
Q: What was the most challenging part of writing this book?
A: Everyone writing  challenges may vary. As for myself, the marketing and editing process were my most challenged part of writing this book.
Q: Did you set any writing goal for 2014? Did you accomplish any, so far?
