It's Blog Tour Time! YAY. So today I have the author of Angel's Heart, Lisa Bilbrey with me for a author interview. Below you will find the interview, author bio and book information. Make sure you check this out!
Thanks so much Lisa for being on Ali's Bookshelf today, very excited to hear your answers to my questions.
Can you tell us something interesting about your writing process?
There has to be noise. If it’s quiet, I can’t focus and I find myself staring at the screen. It’s not pretty, just ask my kids. If I can’t have my music playing, then I have the television on.
What part of the writing process is the easiest/hardest for you?
The easiest process is usually the writing itself. It’s the editing that I find difficult. I’m a bit stubborn, and often find myself struggling to accept the change even though I know it’s right. It’s getting easier, and I try to learn from the edits so that I don’t make the same mistake twice.
Who is your favorite character (that you’ve written)?
My favorite character is Sophie from Angel’s Heart. She’s so much stronger than she thinks she is, yet she’s needy and vulnerable. Her emotion
s are connected to everything she does.
Aside from family occurrences, what event or accomplishment would you consider to be the highlight of your life thus far?
For me, it has to be getting my first book published. As a child, I struggled with reading. I have dyslexia and often felt like I was stupid because I couldn’t read the same books as everyone else. For a long time, I let the fear stop me from pursuing my writing, but with the support of Michele Richard and Laura Braley, two of the best friends a girl could have, I was able to push past that fear and achieve my dreams.
Who is your all-time favorite fictional book character?
Nancy Drew. She was a badass and knew it. Plus, the girl was stylish.
If you could be any kind of creature (other than human), which would you pick and why?
I’d be a vampire so I wouldn’t have to sleep. Imagine how much writing I’d get done if I didn’t have to sleep every night!

Always willing to learn, she's spends much of her time trying to improve as a storyteller. She's been blessed to find Michele Richard and Laura Braley, both of whom she spends hours every day writing with.
