Today I have the pleasure of interviewing Laura Decamara, a talented author who has written 76 stories for Romance, Family, Religion, Love, General, Nature, Friendship, School, Kids, War, Fantasy, General, Fantasy, and Life. Her story and quest to become a writer is an inspirational one and she’s a wonderful example of how you should fight for what you believe in. Laura, thanks so much for your time today and for allowing us to get to know a little bit more about you and your story!
Where do the your ideas come from?
ANSWER: My dreams or in daydreams while I am awake.
Why do you write?
ANSWER: I need an outlet for my thoughts, if I don’t write I get frustrated and anxious from my bottled up emotions.
What are you working on at the minute?
ANSWER: “Love at the Wheel Part 2,” a sequel to a live story that began in 2010.
What’s it about?
ANSWER: It is a continuation of part 1, the next journey in Charlotte White and Robert Swift’s life as they try to learn how to be in a relationship together now that their feelings for each other are revealed. But it is challenging because Charlotte’s mother is gravely ill, and the antagonist that they vanquished in Part 1 is now seeking revenge.
Give us an insight into your main (protagonist) character. What does he/she do that is so special?
ANSWER: She knew very little about business or about love and was naive, and is now having to learn very quickly about love, business and the ugly part of the world such as crime and evil.
Give us an insight into the antagonist character. What does he/she do that is so special?
ANSWER: He is an experienced scheming sociopath who thinks only of himself, but can make women fall in love with him, and then he uses them for selfish reasons.
What were you like at school? (Mention any handicap or learning challenges! This will amplify your talent.)
ANSWER: I needed a lot of help, especially in English composition, I could verbally tell a mentor or helper the intricate story in my mind, and then they would write it up for me with correct grammar and punctuation. I was told that I was handicapped and that I would never be able to write a book or poetry, but I kept pushing anyway, and am still pushing today, even harder than ever before. I want the world to know my story, to read my poems and stories, to feel my feelings!
