Interview with S.B. Alexander, author of My Heart to Touch
17 Dec 2018
What can you tell us about your new release, My Heart to Touch?
This book is a new series that is somewhat of a spinoff to my popular Maxwell series. So fans will enjoy getting to know eight more Maxwells and see some old characters like Kade Maxwell in this book.
What or who inspired you to become an author?
I’ve always had the itch to write a book, but the process seemed daunting until I chatted with an author friend who inspired me to stop talking about it and write the book.
What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?
The books that I love and have read a few times over are, The Shining, by Stephen King, Harry Potter, J.K. Rowling, The Fallen Crest Series, by Tijan, The Celestine Prophecy by James Redfield, and The Eagle Elite Series, by Rachel Van Dyken.
Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?
Definitely Rachel Van Dyken. I’m a huge fan of her books, but I’m also in awe of her work ethic. My top two questions. What keeps her motivated to write? And what is a typical day for her?
What’s your favorite thing about writing?
The excitement of writing the first chapter, especially in a new series where I get to introduce readers to new characters.
What is a typical day like for you?
I’m a full-time caregiver to my husband who has ALS. So my author business comes second. But most of the time once my husband is up and situated for the day, I tuck myself in my office for a few hours and during that time I address emails and social media to get that out of the way. Then I spend as much time as I can writing unless I have a release coming up then I split my time between writing and marketing.
What scene in My Heart to Touch was your favorite to write?
Without giving anything away, there’s a boathouse scene where Maiken and Quinn are at a crossroads with each other and themselves, and I loved showing how they handle being teenagers.
Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?
Life is too short to waste. So live every moment like it’s your last.
