Author Interview with Australian Author Simone Yemm

Author Interview with Australian Author Simone Yemm

Welcome to Author Services Australia, Simone Yemm, and welcome to our author interviews! If you could start by introducing yourself to everyone, let them know where you’re from and some of your interests and hobbies.

What inspired you to start writing?

My writing began as journaling during my recovery period in the hospital. From there, it grew into a public blog, and later I was encouraged and inspired to start turning my rambling thoughts into a cohesive story. Before I knew it, I was writing a book!

What is your preferred genre to write in?

My only book is a memoir, and I would love to write a second memoir – it is in the pipeline. But I also have some adventure stories and even a little erotic fiction tucked away in my head, ready to be released when the time is right.

What is your writing process?

Erratic would be the best way to describe my writing process! I write in fits and starts. I find writing to be a highly emotional experience, so I have to be in the right space and place to do it. I’ve also become highly undisciplined of late, and that is reflected in my writing.

What is one thing you wish you knew now that you didn’t know when you started writing?

It is emotionally draining to bare yourself open and share it with the world.

What was the hardest part of self-publishing?Author Simone Yemm Stalked By Demons, Guarded By Angels

Working out what to do and where to start.

Which book is your favorite and why?

I absolutely adore Patrick Suskind’sPerfume” because the writing is so delightfully descriptive and the storyline dark and beautiful at the same time.

Who are some of your favorite authors?

Audrey Niffenegger, Marya Hornbacher, Emma Donoghue, Raymond E Feist, and George R. R. Martin.

What are you working on right now?

My second memoir – what happened after the last one finished.

What’s next for you as an author?

I want to branch out into fiction. I completed NaNoWriMo in 2022 and hope to do so in 2023. Then finish off those projects and get them out into the world.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I would love to see myself sitting in a comfy chair in the sunshine with a cup of tea in hand, reminiscing about all the books I had finally written and published.

If you could choose one superpower, what would it be and why?

The power to eradicate procrastination. Super Focus.
