Author Spotlight!! Elizabeth Sharp
Please tell us about yourself using 3 adjectives, 1 quirk and a pop culture addiction
Clumsy, whimsical, caring author addicted to sunflower seeds and Netflixing the way through series.
How do you come up with character names? How do you come up with novel titles?
For characters, if they don’t come with their own name I open a magazine to a random page or Google the last word I wrote and use “I feel lucky.” I go with the first appropriate name I find. If all else fails, I take the first name of the top notification on FB and the last name from the second. For novels, they generally wind up being named by my writing group. especially Susan Burdorf. She’s the Title Whisperer.
Do you have any advice for anyone that would like to be an author?
Don’t ask for advice until the book is written. Keep your nose down and get words on paper. Forget articles you read or things you’ve heard. Just get words down. You can edit crap, but you can’t edit a blank page.
What is your favorite fairy tale? What do you love about it?
My favorite fairy tale was always Repunzel. The story of a girl isolated her entire life only to escape and discover she was loved all along always resonated with me.
Tell us something people might be surprised to learn about you-
I am completely unorganized. Even my writing comes out of order.
