  1. Tell me a bit about one of your favorites that you wrote.                                                                                                                                               I like to think I haven’t written my favourite yet. I love Kira and Carter like they are family. Carter has been with me a very long time so I love writing anything with them in it. But my favourite hasn’t been written yet. It’ll test me and push me. It’ll make me cry and bring me joy. I push myself a little more each time I write so I’ll get my favourite one day 🙂
  2. Writing is a difficult endeavor. What makes you continue to write?                                                                                                                                                                   I started writing when I was signed off work with depression. I found my love of reading again and that sparked the fire to write. I have many half finished pieces dating back to my teens but it was when I was in the darkest part of my life that I found a light in reading, an escape. It helped me find my own story and I wanted to tell it. Eyes Open started one night when I was just typing out random thoughts and it actually ended up being a whole book. The first long story I’d ever finished and it lead to more. It’s knowing that my writing can let someone escape that keeps me writing. Someone helped me escape, so I want to give others that chance.
  3. What do you look forward to every day?

I look forward to seeing my family everyday. When I wake up the first two things I see are my husband and my cat, closely followed by my kids. I look forward to hearing the bird song before I go to work and I look forward to finding chances to pay it forward. I make it my goal to do one good deed each day for someone else. no personal gain, just to pay the good feeling forward. It can be holding a door open or letting someone out of a junction at rush hour. small things make big changes.

4. How do you define success? What makes you successful?

Success is different to everyone. Some days success is just being able to get up and make it out of the door in the morning. I like to think of success as a series of small victories that are progressively more numerous than the failures. Although it’s the failures that teach you how to achieve the success and value it more. Being humble and appreciative of what I have makes me successful in my eyes.

5. Any tips for a newbie writer?

Have faith in your story. Writing comes with time, experience and knowledge but stories come from imagination, dreams and a wealth of life experience. A well known gentleman who created an entire world on a disc (R.I.P Terry) once wrote back to me when I asked for advice and his words stuck with me. Write about what you know and life a full life. I now know the wisdom in his words. Life experience is a pool you can draw from. Heart-ache, joy, relief, sadness, grief, love, lust, hatred, anger, they are all ink in your pen, words in your arsenal. A full life is what everyone should live for. Live on the edge of your comfort zone and keep pushing the boundary back. The founder of the Scouting Association, Baden-Powell once said:

Try to leave this world a little better than you found it and, when your turn comes to die, you can die happy in feeling that at any rate you have not wasted your time but have done your best.”

I believe in everything we do in this life we should try to better ourselves and make the world a little better 🙂

Character Interview- Tatiana Baker

Character Interview with Tatiana Baker

Main protagonist~ from Jasper, The Guardian League, Book One:

 

So… The question on everyone’s mind is what’s it like to be with an Angel?

Well, there’s actually not much of a difference. I know that sounds strange but Angels are all around us and we are in relationships with them though we might not know it. Most people probably picture hugs and kisses and romance with Cupid flying around them all day long when they think about being with one of Heaven’s greatest creations. Well, I’m here to tell you that’s not all true. However, I would never trade Jasper for another. Ever. There’s nothing better than a committed partner who’s protective, loving and dedicated. Jasper is my biggest fan and my greatest cheerleader. He’s also my hero and my best advisor. But there are days when he’s not so heavenly (chuckles). Regardless, he will always be there for me and his love is endless. I couldn’t ask for anything better

Did you find it hard to believe Jasper was an Angel?

I knew something was wrong when he saved that boy and there was no humanly possible way he could have done so but I didn’t figure he had a secret. When Jasper revealed to me what he was and that he was not a human being, I was in total shock but I couldn’t deny what I saw in front of my eyes. There are days I’m still surprised at my luck and that he chose me out of so many possibilities.

Does he have any bad habits that drive you crazy?

{Laughs} That’s a good question. Actually, he’s impossibly perfect but he does frustrate me at times. Jasper will say something and not realize its impact. He is so honest that sometimes he’s brutally honest but that’s not his fault. It’s an Angel thing, you know. He doesn’t understand some human customs and social graces but he is learning. Jasper just speaks the truth, which I appreciate most times, but it can still be quite maddening.

How do you handle situations where you and Jasper disagree?

Just like any human couple, we will eventually talk it out. I will leave his side if things get really heated until I can cool down and then we will get back together at some point. Jasper will tell me his side and I will tell him mine. Sometimes it’s a matter of a misunderstanding and other times it may be because Jasper doesn’t understand a human custom. Our relationship has been a real learning experience for both of us but the good part is we are committed to each other. I am never leaving him and he is never leaving me so arguments and disagreements are petty and don’t really mean much in the bigger picture. I love him too much to ever let him go. However, I have shared with him the one exception that would make me walk away: cheating.   We have discussed it but the good part is, I have nothing to fear. Jasper is not a human being. He is an Angel and his needs, wants and desires are different, as a result, and that’s a good thing. That makes him loyal and dependable- two traits that can be really hard to find or keep in a relationship.

How do you handle the times he’s off doing Angel work?

Well, I keep myself busy. (smiles)  I’m very fortunate, though. He’s not gone often for long periods of time because he doesn’t want to stay away from me much. However, there are times when he has to depart on a mission with the Guardian League and for these occasions, he tries not be absent from me longer than two weeks at a time. These periods of absence can get very lonely because I really love his company and I miss him when he’s not around. However, we have the ability to telepathically communicate and he’s constantly talking to me or showing me signs throughout my days which makes it less lonely for me. We have an agreed upon sign that he will show me when he wants to impart to me he loves me and he’s thinking about me. It makes things a lot easier though I still prefer his company over most anything.
