Interview with Mila Olsen, author of Trapped

14 Jan 2019

What can you tell us about your new release, Trapped?

Trapped: Until You Love Me” was the first novel which I published on my own. It’ s a story about a kidnapping, but it is also a story of deep love. In Germany, it was a big success and one of the Kindle-Bestsellers on Amazon in 2016.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

Michael Ende, the author of The NeverEnding Story inspired me with his wonderful novel when I was thirteen.

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?

The NeverEnding Story (Michael Ende), Mister God, This Is Anna (Sydney Hopkins), The Hunger Games Book 1 (Suzanne Collions), Forbidden (Tabitha Suzuma), Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (J. K. Rowling)

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?

I would like to talk to J.K. Rowling and I would like to ask her if she really plotted all seven books of “Harry Potter” before writing the first one.

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

I love to live in other worlds and I love to create very difficult personalities.

What is a typical day like for you?

Coffee – Family – Writing – Coffee – Lunch – Writing – Coffee – Dinner – Family – Writing – Relaxing with Netflix – Sleep…

What scene in Trapped was your favorite to write?

It’s one of the last scenes in Trapped. It is really heartbreaking, but I can’t tell you more because of “spoiler alert”.

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

Carpe Diem
