Interview with JG Foster, Author of Say What Now?

05 Oct 2022

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Say What Now??

The story is lifted from my life. I am a German who moved to the US 10 years ago. Yet, I didn’t have the big culture shock I expected, but stumbled over small things, like the difference of Celsius and Fahrenheit uses, liter and gallons, miles and kilometers. Examples like these are the foundation of my book.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

I read a book from any genre, if the premise is intriguing and/or I heard great things about it.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo, Forest of a Thousand Lanterns, We are not from here, Between the Lines, and Highly Illegal Behavior.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

When the MC travels to Niagara Falls and arrives at a motel.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

During writing breaks I practice juggling.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

What would I regret not doing when I die.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

Moving away from your cultural background is eye opening.
