Remember me raving about ‘The Afterlife of Walter Augustus’? Well, looks like I can’t get over my love for it just yet and hence I approached the lovely author for an interview 😀 You can read my review of the book here, in brief, I loved it and I want as many people as possible to read it. It has also been short-listed for the 2018 Kindle Storyteller Award! What more do you want?!
Lynn talks about her favourite HP book, her favourite authors and a lot more.
Q.Tell us a bit about yourself. Have you always dreamed of writing books?
Definitely. I have always loved playing with words, in songs lyrics and poems and just generally.
Q.Who are your favourite authors?
I have a lot and I’m very much a binge reader. I am a great fan of Margaret Atwood, Murakami and Neil Gaiman.
Q.‘The Afterlife of Walter Augustus’ has a very unique take on life after death, how did you come up with this? Did you take inspiration from any of your favourite author?
No, I wasn’t inspired by a particular author with it, more my own intrigue on the matter of life after death.
Q. How did you manage to keep the book completely fictional even though life after death has a somewhat religious aspect to it?
I think what keeps the books so light-hearted in that manner is that there is still the question of what happens next after the Interim. The book doesn’t attempt to answer any theological questions or draw on any religious belief. It’s just a what if.
Q. Who is your favourite character from the book?
It’s tough. I have a soft spot for Letty, probably because I have a bit of a chocolate problem too, but it would be Pemberton I think.
Q. While reading the book, I noticed that you included a small Harry Potter reference. Being a great HP fan myself, I feel compelled to ask which HP book is your favourite? Who is your favourite character?
I am a book number 3 girl, The Prisoner of Azkaban. I’m all about Sirius.
Q. Finally, can you let us know what your next book is about?
Peas, Carrots and an Aston Martin is about a successful middle-aged man called Eric, who is only allowed to keep his inheritance if he succeeds in maintaining his father’s allotment.
It was great having you on the blog, Hannah!
