Interview with Darcy Pattison

Link:  11 Ways to Ruin a Photograph Book Trailer

Michelle:  Was there a specific event or person who touched your heart before writing your work of fiction, 11 Ways to Ruin a Photograph?

Darcy:  I live near the Little Rock Air Force Base and have watched military families for years as they endure deployment of their loved ones. You may think it’s just something to do with the Iraq or Afghanistan fronts, but in reality, as long as we have a military force to defend our country, military families will struggle through this issue. My heart goes out to the family (as a whole) but especially the kids, as moms and dads are gone for long periods. And I love the stubbornness of this character, her commitment to her vision of what a family is. She finds humorous ways to express her frustration and is rewarded in the end with the task of keeping up the family album.

Michelle:  Thanks Darcy!  I love to know all about an author’s inspiration.  More interview questions tomorrow. 🙂

Reminder:  Just two days left to win 11 Ways to Ruin a Photograph by Darcy Pattison.

    I have relatives who have served and have the stories from the adults left behind to worry, but not from a kid’s point of view. Love it!
