Interview with Stephen G Hardy, Author of Search for Complete

28 Jun 2023

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Search for Complete?

I was inspired to write this story after a conversation my husband and I had had over brunch with some friends, the husband commented on how similar I was to his wife, and that when I spoke, he could swear I was his wife talking. This got me to think about a man who possessed both a male and female essence.

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

For Christopher it would be A Lark Ascending by Vaughn Williams. For Laura it would be Lover Fool by the Cardigans.

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

Classic Literature. I do not write this genre, but I am influenced by the style of writing. I prefer to write Contemporary fiction with LGBTQ+ elements.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

Upside Down, by N.R. Walker & Not That Complicated, by Isabel Murray.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

There are several but the most emotional scene to write was the New Year’s Eve scene when Christopher and David become romantic lovers.

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

I listen to music that fits the emotions of a scene I am writing.

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

Know thyself; Nothing in excess.

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

The importance of conversations in promoting a human connection with someone.
