Author Interview--Cher Green

Hello All, Today, I'd like to introduce to you--Author Cher Green!

Cher Green writes in many genres, spanning from horror to romance. Her work has appeared in various magazines and anthologies. She has also authored two paranormal romance novellas, Escape to Love and Seduced by Darkness, and a children’s book, The Sacrifice.

What are you currently working on?
I'm currently working on a paranormal novel. A woman discovers she has the ability to communicate with spirits, an ability she's had since childhood, but has pushed to the darkest corners of her mind. Her newly discovered ability comes with a task, one which could save the world, or destroy it if she fails.

What process in writing is hardest for you?
Honestly, the hardest part is getting the time into the project. I have a full-time day job and many other interests other than writing. I do my best to allow time for every aspect but sometimes it can be overwhelming.

What process in writing is the most enjoyable for you? 
I really enjoy the whole process, but if I had to choose one it would be the first draft. Watching the creation grow is the most exciting thing about writing for me.

Are you panster or a plotter?
I'm a little of both, but the first draft is usually in panster mode. After that's complete, I usually turn to plotting to work out any bugs.

How did you come up with your storyline, or what inspired you to write The Sacrifice?
I was in a writing group, and we worked on a new prompt each month. For this story, the prompt was a fairy tale. During these type of exercises, I don't worry about the results, I focus mainly on letting go and allowing my muse to take the lead. Some of my best stories have come from little exercises such as prompts, whether it's within a group or a personal writing session. I didn't  think much about this little tale, but eventually I went back and expanded on it. It took quite a while to find a home for it. I originally sent it out as a short story to numerous magazines. A children's book hadn't crossed my mind until it was suggest by one of the editors at eTreasures. 

When is your favorite time to write?
I don't have a certain time I write, although I'm sure it would be helpful, if it were possible. My days are never the same, so it's hard to set up a working schedule. I write whenever I can fit it in. My only condition is it has to be quiet. I'm able to block out distractions if necessary with classical music, but I still find it slightly distracting. Perfect silence is my best time to write.

What is your favorite snack while writing?
