Indie Author Interview: Sherry Leclerc


Indie Author Interview with Sherry Leclerc - Author of the Fantasy Novel The Guardians of Eastgate.

Sherry Leclerc is a science fiction and fantasy fanatic who lives in magical realms where swords and sorcery, action and adventure, seers, shifters and sorcerers abound.

Interview with Sherry Leclerc

Author Sherry Leclerc
Author Sherry Leclerc
Alan Kealey (Indie Author News): What is your (writing) background?
Sherry Leclerc: I have been writing and reading voraciously since childhood. I have written poetry and short stories from a young age. My love of reading and writing led me to pursue a Bachelor of Arts in English Language and Literature, minoring in French Language and Literature. I then followed that with a B.ED.
While pursing my B.A., I wrote for the University newspaper. While on a semester of immersion in St. Pierre and Miquelon, I wrote an article in French, which was published in a local magazine. For a time, I thought I wanted to be a journalist and I was building a portfolio to apply to schools of journalism. However, I realized this is not the kind of writing I really wanted to do.
I have long wanted to write novels in the fantasy genre, but I did not take the chance until recently. I love writing, and I am continually striving to improve my craft. I write the kind of stories I would enjoy reading, and I hope my readers enjoy them as well.

Who are your favorite writers, your favorite books, and who or what are your writing influences?
One of my favorite all-time fantasy authors is J.R.R. Tolkien, who I first read in high school. I would say he was a huge influence on my love of the genre, and on the kind of stories I write.
Of course, I have read many authors in the years since that I have also loved, and who have been writing influences for me. Piers Anthony’s Xanth novels were an early influence. J.K. Rowling and her Harry Potter books are a big love of mine as well. I also love the cross-genre fantasy novels by Sherrilyn Kenyon, in particular her Dark Hunters series and League series. I am also a fan of J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood novels.
I am also a huge fan of comic books and comic-based movies. I don’t write super heroes, as such, in my novels. I rather write people or races who are different to our own, but still share many of our characteristics, problems and emotions. But I can’t help but add some of those high-action scenes you can find in comics and super-hero movies into my novels.

When did you first know that you wanted to be a writer?
I think I have always considered myself a writer, as I was always writing something, even from a very young age. I had ideas for a couple of novels stored in my head since I was a teenager. I pursued by B.A. in Language and Literature with the hopes of eventually becoming a published author.
That was more than twenty years ago. Back then, I knew becoming a published author was a difficult road, unless one was very lucky, and could be a long process. I was a poor student with student loans that would need to be paid back once I graduated, so I completed a second degree in a subject I also loved and felt was very important: education.
Now, years later, life has settled some, and the upsurge in, and relative ease of, self-publishing rekindled that old desire to publish. The idea of writing my novel, publishing it and still retaining creative control to write the kinds of stories I know I would myself enjoy was so appealing to me that I finally found the courage to put myself and my writing out there.

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I wrote countless poems and lyrics when I was young, but the first story I wrote actually turned into an anthology of three or four short horror/paranormal stories that I put together for my friends and family for Halloween one year.

"[...] writing and researching"

Tell us about your writing process. Do you have a writing routine?
With a full-time day job and a family to take care of, my writing routine generally consists of writing and researching in the evenings once the kids have gone to bed and trying to catch up more on the weekends and holidays, whenever I have a spare moment. It can be a slow process, given that I also love to read about writing and publishing whenever I can as well.

Please, describe your desk/workplace.
My desk/workspace is pretty cluttered. I have a laptop that I use to write and research, and a space just to the left that I keep clear for whatever notes I am using as that particular time. I have a space on my right where I put my water, tea or coffee. But I also like to pile and/or spread out the things I think I may need on the rest of the desk, like research and informational books, the many notebooks I write my ideas in, and so on. I like to have things I might need within arm’s reach, so I can write with relatively few interruptions.
My husband hates the clutter, but when he mentions it, I just remind him of that Albert Einstein quote: “If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?”

"[...] the hardest is always being able to find the time to write."

What do you find easiest about writing? What the hardest?

New Indie Book Release: The Nautilus Legacy (Lewis Crow)


New Indie Book Release:
The Nautilus Legacy (The Nemo Chronicles) - Lewis Crow
Literary Fiction (294 Pages - March 2018)

The Nautilus Legacy is a Victorian adventure novel in the form of an autobiography. It is a direct sequel to Jules Verne’s novels 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and Mysterious Island.

- "Well-written prose, drawing the reader deeper and deeper into the story with never a dull moment. Following the exploits of the protagonist, who is himself stunned to learn of his relation to the 'infamous' Captain Nemo, I could SEE every person, every location through the words of the author." - Reader Review


About the Book

The Nautilus Legacy (Lewis Crow)
Click to Read an Excerpt
The stunning revelation that his father became none other than the infamous Captain Nemo shakes a young man's world to its foundation.

This fictional memoir recounts his life after a tragic war destroys his family and nearly kills him. Learning the truth about his father years later compels him to make a difficult choice: will he keep his comfortable but unspectacular middle-class Victorian existence or forsake everything to continue Nemo's work of exploring the seas and aiding the oppressed?

Researched to be true to the spirit of Verne's source novels (20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Mysterious Island) and his original ideas, the book moves from Europe to America to the depths of the sea and beyond.

In addition to its literary and adventure themes, it is also the very personal story of an insecure man who struggles with the life of his father and their unfinished relationship.

Click to Read an Excerpt
Jessica and Owen Nobles are heartbroken over the loss of their son, Jacob. Jessica has taken his death especially hard, spending the past three years sedated and under the care of a psychiatrist. Desperate to save his wife, Owen moves the couple to Florida, hoping a change in scenery will remind her how to live again.

When Jessica begins to see a small boy in the upstairs window of the abandoned home next door, she goes to investigate, only to find the house empty. Afraid that she may be seeing things, Jess does an internet search on the home’s address. What she finds is an image of the boy from the window—a boy that’s been missing more than thirteen years.

Reluctant to tell her husband, Jessica sets out to find what information she can on the child’s disappearance. Yet, someone is going to great lengths to stop her.

To make matters worse, bodies begin dropping around her like flies. And she's the prime suspect in the killings. If Jessica doesn’t back off now, she risks losing more than just her mind…she could very well lose her life.
