Updated: Nov 22, 2018
Today I am chatting with action/adventure author Beverley Scherberger. Whose books include The Savage Isle; Stranded; Legacy of a Fallen Angel and Saving Serena. Plus two books based on movie scripts Beverley has co written with Bill Coleman ; The Problem With Men and The Accidental Filmmaker.
Question 1:- Looks like we’re heading for a nuclear apocalypse how would you spend the final days?
A nuclear apocalypse…hmmmm… Well, it’s doubtful the written word would survive the cataclysm, so I think I’d gather my friends and loved ones together ~ along with their pets, of course ~ and have a memorable Send-Off Party that would last for days…weeks…however long we had left. We could reminisce about our lives, our loves, the best and the worst, and enjoy all our favorite foods and drinks to total excess. (And one last roll in the hay doesn’t sound bad, either!)
Can I come-I'll bring food?
Question 2:- When it comes to writing, what are the excuses you use not to sit down and write?
I’m retired and have no particular schedule to follow. I’ve given myself permission to write or not, depending upon the mood. When inspired, I can spend a feverish eight hours or more at the computer, only coming up for air when my kitty demands her dinner. In between, I do other enjoyable things. Therefore, I don’t need excuses.
Maybe I should think about getting a cat!
Question 3:-What teacher inspired you to a):-laugh in the face of adversity, B) hide in the face of adversity c) or just how to spell it properly?
There are times when any one of the three options might be appropriate. My seventh-grade English teacher was one tough lady, but she was fair and demanded that her students work hard. (Miss Shanor, are you listening?) She taught me that facing things head-on was often the best approach. If there’s absolutely nothing you can do about it, hide out until the storm blows over. Occasionally, just spell it and move on.
Miss Shanor has taken spelling to a whole new level.
Question 4:-What school friend inspired you to A) do something bad, b) do something good or, c) give up on the human race (momentarily)?
