Welcome today to Irene Helenowski, author of the new book Order of the Dimensions! Irene has graciously agreed to stop by and answer a few questions today.
Hi, Irene! Tell us a little about your work in progress. I have decided to make Order of The Dimensions a trilogy and have been working on Books 2 and 3 simultaneously. Actually, I’m closer to finishing Book 3 than Book 2 now. Is that weird?
How do you handle bad reviews?
I try to learn from them and hope to improve my writing technique accordingly.
Any advice for aspiring writers?
Just try your best and have fun with it. Even if others don’t like it, it is something you can call your own.
What is your personal writing process?
I just write whenever I can whether it is during my lunch hour at work or if I have some free time in the evening at home.
Who are a few authors you look up to?
Joseph Conrad, Jack London, Michael Crichton, and Isaac Asimov.
What book are you reading now?
I just finished Alien Invasion by MT Dismuke and am reading Forever Young by Gerry Simpkins. Two very different books but equally enjoyable and fast-paced page turners.
What inspired you to write your first book?
Watching a Science special on the Multiverse, I started wondering if parallel dimensions really exist and what could we be doing there.
What do you find particularly challenging about writing?
Just trying to find a voice which helps connect with the reader.
Have you ever used characteristics from someone you know in one of your books?
Yes, I do have quite a few characters that are based on people in real life. In fact, I had my youngest niece in mind when writing about a little girl introduced in the second and third books. What inspires you to write? Anything from daily experiences to what I hear or see on the news.
