Introducing... Dee Rivers Unexpected Answers

What encouraged you to write your own book?
Many people, on hearing the amazing story suggested a book and as I had written a few unpublished children's short stories many years earlier, I was encouraged by family to 'give it a go'. While working in an extremely quiet furniture showroom, I began writing in a notebook, transferring and editing my words to the computer in the evenings at home. After many rejections from publishers the story lay in a file on my computer for a number of years until I was encouraged to dig it out again and finally complete it!
Have you always been a book worm?
I have been an avid reader since a very early age. Now, as an adult, family saga's are my favourite type of book. I like to feel that the author has done some research, where the reader is perhaps taken to different countries with a thought-provoking plot. My local library is a regular haunt and a book is never far from my hands. Though saying that, music is my first love. I sing with a local choir and play piano, I am now retired though still playing for pleasure. I have also written several Christian Gospel songs and poetry.
