Interview with Nancy Golden, Author of Alien Neighbors

01 Dec 2021

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Alien Neighbors?

I love people and I love technology. Alien Neighbors was born from a desire to write a fun and entertaining story in the tradition of Star Trek: commenting on social issues and facing conflict through unique situations and diverse characters in a way that is uplifting and thoughtful.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Alien Neighbors, what would they be?

You’ve Got a Friend in Me

Please Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood

Rocket Man

Born to Fly

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

I am all over the map both in what I like to read and what I like to write, but science fiction has always been a favorite.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir, The Peacemaker’s Code by Deepak Malhotra

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

That’s a tough one because I had a lot of fun writing most of the scenes in the book. If I had to choose, I would say the moon landing.

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

I have a four-legged 90lb. writing buddy named Mark who periodically encourages me to take needed breaks and play ball in the backyard.

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

“What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.” —Albert Pine

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

We have more in common than we are different.
