The Four Horsemen Series welcomes author Patrizia Sammarrtino

      Thank you for joining me today Patrizia and welcome to my blog. What are some of your favorite genres to read and to write?

It is my first book, therefore I really do not have a genre, it is about me and my life. I like to read vampire books and Koons is also one of my favorites.

What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author? What was the biggest compliment? Did those change how or what you did in your next novel?

Of course, English not being my language I had heavy criticism about my grammar. The best compliments were regarding my courage to talk about my life and recognitions about how hard and complex it has been.

When you sit down to write, do you do it the old-fashioned way with pen and paper or do you use a computer? Do you prefer one way or the other? 

Definitely computer, much faster.

What do you do when you are not writing? Do you pick up some from you to be read pile?

I read vampire’s stuff.

Compared to when you first started writing, have you notice any big changes in your writing style or how you write compared from then to now?

I just started and I am learning as I go, but my style is the same.

What do you look for in a book when you sit down to read for fun?

Must be interesting, easy to read and I don’t want to find out the end until… the end.

What has been your favorite part of being an author? What has been your least favorite?

Sharing and sharing, it was beautiful to share with other people my life, but it is has been also very painful to remember it all.

What is your favorite junk food vice?

I’m not sure it is junk, but I love Italian pastries and dark chocolate.
