Author Interview: Mieradome by Kate O'Hegarty

Welcome to Author Kate O'Hegarty!

About Kate: 

Kate has a Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Arts from Goddard College. She has been an international traveler since she was 7 years old which has helped shape Kate's active imagination and writing style. She currently lives in the Central Valley of California. Mieradome is her debut novel.

BLM:  If you could invite 3 people to dinner, who would they be?
C.S. Lewis, Juliette Gordon Low (founder of Girl Scouts), and Chumlee (from Pawn Stars) Chumlee is there so I'll laugh : )

BLM:  What is one book you think everyone should read?
The Chronicles of Narnia

BLM:  What is your favorite music? 
The Corrs (they are an Irish band)

BLM:  What is something on your bucket list? 
Snorkel in The Great Barrier Reef

BLM:  Where is your favorite place to write?
On a comfy chair, in the front room of my house, with a cup of Egyptian Licorice tea nearby.

BLM:  What do you do when you receive a bad review?
 I just take it in stride. It’s not a personal attack on the author, just a reader not completely getting into the work. Art is subjective, some will love it & some won’t, that’s just how it is : )

BLM:  What is your favorite book?
Children of Dune by Frank Herbert

BLM:  Do you prefer vanilla or chocolate? 

BLM:  What do you do when you aren't writing?
Generally I’m traveling around getting inspiration for new stories.

BLM:  What was the last book you read?
Trish Ryan’s A Maze of Grace

BLM:   How did you come up with the idea for Mieradome?
I have a great video that tells all about Mieradome’s creation.

BLM:  If you could go back in time, what decade would you chose and why?
 I’d go back to the 1920’s. I love the idea of flappers and great music and literature. It was a grand time back then.

A huge thank you to Kate O'Hegarty for the interview!  It was my first author interview on my blog so I was very excited!
