@HomeAuthor and editor Jeri Walker-Bickett recently featured fellow author (and PR expert) Anne O’Connell on her blog. Anne is the author of @home in Dubai: Getting connected online and on the ground (Summertime Publishing 2011) and the recently released novel Mental Pause.

In the interview Anne chats about:

  • what inspires her writing:  “I gather inspiration from wherever I happen to be standing at the moment, whoever I’m conversing with, whatever I’m eating, feeling, touching, seeing. I read other people’s work, listen to writing webinars, visit writing blogs, and participate in discussions on LinkedIn. Inspiration is all around us… you just have to stop and absorb it!”
  • her favourite novels: “It’s really tough to say what my favorite novel is as I have so many favorites and all for different reasons. Do memoirs count? If so, I’d have to say Angela’s Ashes by Frank McCourt and The Woman Who Fell from the Sky by Jennifer Steil…”

She also offers some PR and marketing tips for fellow authors. Read the full interview here.
