An Interview with Ohio Author & Illustrator Sandra Russell
From southeastern Ohio, Sandra Russell writes of personal experiences, local venues, and more. Her new book Some of Us Are Ghosts explores the possibility that there are some among us who exist but are really not living to their fullest potential. Sandra, an accomplished artist, illustrates beautiful scenarios that correspond with her thoughtful poem.
Besides being an artist and acting in the local theatre group, Sandra is an engaging storyteller. Her wit, whimsy, and total serendipity will keep you entertained.
GM: What is the premise for your new book Some of Us Are Ghosts?
GM: It's an engaging poem with beautiful illustrations. What would you like readers to take away from your story?
I guess it's about taking ownership of your own life and not letting losses become tomorrow's expectation even if there is no guarantee, keep going more boldly.
GM: Your illustrations capture the gist of the poem so well. What are you currently writing, reading, and/or illustrating?
GM: Describe your workspace and where you like to work...
GM: Do you have a muse (maybe a cat?) or other prompt that motivates your creativity?
GM: What advice do you have for novice writers and those wanting to write their first poem/story?
