Interview with Larada Horner-Miller

    What is your schedule like when you’re writing a book?

    I have set time in the morning where I do a Quiet Time doing Julia Cameron’s Morning Pages, a meditation time and then spiritual readings, so my writing is in the afternoon and evening.

    Did you ever consider writing under a pseudonym?

    No, I have never considered a pen name because I connect so much with my writing, I want people to know I wrote the book(s).

    Have you ever gotten reader’s block?

    I’m not sure what reader’s block is.

    Does your family support your career as a writer?

    My family totally supports my writing career. So much so, I was recording my audiobook of Hair on Fire the week of Thanksgiving. My husband offered to buy Thanksgiving dinner so I wouldn’t have to stress about doing both of them.

    How many hours a day do you write?

    I write 4-6 hours a day.

    If you could invite any three people for dinner, whom would you invite?

    I would invite Charles Dickens, Tony Hillerman & Jodi Piccoult.

    Would you share something about yourself that your readers don’t know (yet)?

    For my second wedding, my husband and I did a sweat and spent our wedding night in a Lakota sweat lodge.

    Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?

    I write what my heart leads me to, so I don’t follow the latest trends and try to match what’s selling. So much of my writing stems from my life growing up in a small ranching community in southeastern Colorado.

    How do you celebrate when you finish your book?

    My husband and I usually celebrate with a bottle of Sparkling Cider, and I post a picture of us on Facebook!

    If you could be mentored by a famous author, who would it be?

    I would love to be mentored by Tony Hillerman because of his love for mysteries set in the Southwest!
