As promised, I'm cutting into my brief blogging breaking and welcoming T.F. Walsh to my blog as part of her Cloaked in Fur tour. Take it away, T.F...
Hi Annalisa, thanks for having me on your blog. Today I want to chat about what lead me to become a writer.
As a child I remember scribbling short stories on the inside cover of my sister’s books, and I have no idea why. Perhaps I was pretending my stories were published, or I secretly wanted everyone to pay attention to me, after all I was the middle child, but whatever the reason, one thing is certain, I’ve always loved telling tales. It may have something to do with my father’s passion for writing. He’s a well-respected Romanian poet and author, and holds the same dedication to books I do. After all, he had converted our family garage into a miniature library, filled with all sorts of books. A grand table ran the length of the room, piled high with papers and books. He still spends his time in the garage today, typing on his computer, which used to be a typewriter, and to be honest that’s exactly how I see myself in many years to come (but maybe not in a garage) creating fictional worlds and characters and bringing them to life. This would completely satisfy me, a fact my husband is well aware of and comfortable with.
What do you see yourself doing in ten years?

Growing up hearing dark fairytales, she's always had a passion for reading and writing horror, paranormal romance, urban fantasy and young adult stories.

It's great taking over your blog while you're away, Annalisa... thanks for having me and letting me talk about Cloaked in Fur:)ReplyDelete
I also created stories from a very young age. Hopefully, I'll still be writing ten years from now. :-)ReplyDelete
I'm thinking the same thing, Misha:)Delete
I also have family members who write.ReplyDelete
It's great seeing Tania here for her tour.
I can see your father. I would want a space like that as well.ReplyDelete
Hopefully you'll have a fancy office-library instead!ReplyDelete
How interesting about your father. It's great seeing Cloaked in Fur everywhere, I love the cover more every time I see it.ReplyDelete
Your father's library sounds wonderful.ReplyDelete
Neat post and I like the connection with your father. Very cool - writing keeps the brain engaged, so that's good. Best of luck with Cloaked in Fur - sounds like a neat readReplyDelete
Great post! I would've loved to have a father like that and to hang out in a garage full of books. I hope my son remembers his little house full of books too.ReplyDelete
loved the post. learning about others' motivation makes a fun read.ReplyDelete
A garage full of books sounds awesome! Hope you get to create lots of characters in lots of worlds!ReplyDelete
Oh my . . . my hubs may not like you anymore once I tell him I want to convert our garage into a mini library for the neighborhood, lol :-)ReplyDelete
Writing full-time would be an excellent present within the next ten years. Your dad sounds awesome. Nice post and welcome Walsh.ReplyDelete
My father's love of words was also passed on to me. How wonderful to have such a legacy.ReplyDelete
Writing seemed to run in my famiy too. I'm told my grandfather loved to write. And my aunt was an editor.ReplyDelete
Both of my parents loved books. Our house was filled with them. So wonderful that you share that bond with your dad. Best of luck on your book!ReplyDelete
Hi guys! Thanks for making Tania feel so welcome. I actually have no idea where my love of books comes from - even now, my parents have all their books on one bookcase, and they are mostly books about gardening, maths and local history photo books.ReplyDelete
Wow I had no idea Tania and I share the same roots...we're both from Romania...wow kisses Tania and good luck with your book.ReplyDelete
Thanks... been meaning to ask you where in Romania you are from... might have to email you:)Delete
Thank you everyone for your wonderful comments, and so great to see others have writers in their family too:)ReplyDelete
Wow! Sounds awesome! Hope you continue creating characters!ReplyDelete
Good to meet you Tania! Best of luck to you :)ReplyDelete
Dang girl! You're everywhere today! Cool story about your Dad!ReplyDelete
Tina @ Life is Good
I've been seeing this book all over the place this week. Yay for Tania!ReplyDelete
Tania - I had no idea your father was a poet. That's so cool! Wishing you huge success with your book and all your writing endeavors! :-)ReplyDelete
Glad to see that I'm not the only one who scribbled stories in books! Sounds like your dad did a fantastic job of installing a love of words in you. Best of luck with your book tour!ReplyDelete
I LOVE the sound of that garage!ReplyDelete
Great title for your book! Good luck with it! (I hope to continue writing in ten years.)ReplyDelete
I love the title of Tania's book... very evocative...ReplyDelete
Wow, your dad is a famous poet/author? That is so cool. You are blessed to have inherited the "writerly gene" from your father!
