Author Interview – Marla Martenson

9:00 AM Posted by James Noel No comments

What inspired you to write your first book? I had so many interesting stories to tell from my matchmaking job. I wanted to share my knowledge and stories. My husband also encouraged me to write.

What do you consider the most challenging about writing a novel, or about writing in general? The most challenging for me is to find the time. I own a business and have a lot going on. I find that if I get some writing done first thing in the morning, it works better for me as my creativity starts to deplete as the day goes on.

Do you intend to make writing a career? I would love to make writing a career, but not my only career. I am a Gemini, and there are two people in here. I have so many interests, that I will always do more than one thing.

Why did you choose to write this particular book? I chose to write Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker because the stories that I had in my brain were just clamoring to get out and onto the page to be shared.

What was the hardest part about writing this book? It was my first memoir. My first two books were self- help, so it was totally different. Diary needed a back-story, character development, etc. It was a lot harder.
