Tuesday is for #twitterviews. Via Twitter, I ask writers 5 questions, they give 5 answers, and we keep it all under 1400 characters. Today, we hear from Steph Post, author of the A Tree Born Crooked. Post lives in St. Petersburg, Florida. She is a teacher, a dog lover, and (as of recently) a best-selling author. Yesterday, we had a run of tweets that covered everything from the Steph Post Floridian crest to our mutual love for Justified. And we talked about her book some in between there.
Question 1: What does Steph Post Florida look like?
Question 2: What led you to choose your main character (out of a sea of interesting characters)?
Question 3: What do you do to shine some ray of light into your dark, gritty literary settings?
Question 4: How do you approach violent scenes?
Question 5: What is your favorite Boyd Crowder moment on Justified?
A Tree Born Crooked is available on multiple sites via Pandamoon Publishing. If you'll buy a copy, Steph will agree to post a picture of your dog on multiple social media sites. Follow her @StephPostAuthor.
