Author: Eliza Noel
Author Bio: Eliza Noel is a home school graduate with passion for Jesus, people, and literature. Growing up, her favorite books were always Nancy Drew, Anne of Green Gables, and Pride and Prejudice. Around age twelve she wanted to read something with positive values in a modern setting, but couldn’t find what she was looking for. So she wrote it.
When not doing something book-related (reading, writing, blogging, bookstagramming), Eliza works at her day jobs, spends time with her many younger siblings, longboards, has coffee with friends, eats chocolate, and listens to music. California is home, but she would like to travel more and feels she could learn to be content anywhere.
1. What was your first idea of a story? The first one I can remember is, well, it wasn’t a good one, hahah…when I was very young I started designing a town called ‘Kidville’ where only kids were allowed. All the kids would drive those little cars, eat lots of candy and get jobs- ‘fun’ things kids typically aren’t allowed to do. Also they’d get kicked out the moment they turned 18. When I realized this wasn’t a realistic idea I decided to write a book about it instead. The most recent version (last worked on when I was eleven) was called U.S.K.O., which stood for United States of Kids Only.
2. Music or no music while writing?Music. 3. If you weren’t writing full time, what would you be doing?I’m actually working as a caregiver full time right now. My dream job though is to be a stay-at-home homeschooling mom. Until then I hope to keep writing books, travel and in general try new things!
4.What color aesthetic would you be your WIP? I’m not sure I completely understand what that means, but I’ve always pictured the cover having blue on it (and it does!), so maybe a blue aesthetic? 5. Where do most of your ideas come from?The ideas for Dawn Chandler came from a lot of real-life experiences. I have another book I hope to write that was inspired mostly by various song lyrics.
6. What is your favorite/least favorite part of the writing process?My favorite would be either the days of writing the first draft when the idea is new, exciting and all the words are flowing or reading beta reader input/advanced reviews. My least favorite is the part where I’m editing for what feels like the millionth time and questioning if anyone will ever enjoy the story.
7. Which famous person, living or dead would you like to meet and why?This isn’t really book-related, but the first person who popped into my mind was Phyllis Schlafly. She was a conservative who strongly opposed abortion and feminism. I did a research paper about her for my final school project and it was so neat to find someone who was such a strong supporter of being a homemaker when that’s so often looked down upon these days.
8. What are your writing dreams?Ooh, I like this question. I’d like to follow Dawn Chandler for several more years of her life, maybe even write a total of twelve books. Before doing that, I’ll probably take a break and write something completely new. I have various ideas, but one I’m especially excited about and have been for about four years. I’m keeping that secret for now though.
