Author Interview with Miki Taylor

Author Interview with International Author Miki Taylor

Welcome to Author Services Australia, Miki Taylor, 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?

I have always been a creative person and have always done crafts and used creativity as an outlet to relieve stress, cope with whatever was going on in my life that I needed a break from.

What is your preferred genre to write in?

Children’s picture books but wouldn’t mind turning Betty’s character into her own chapter book series.

What is your writing process?

I have a lot of book ideas written in the notes on my phone and when I choose what I want to write about I start writing until I get stuck. Then I step away from it and the words/idea comes to me in my sleep and I get up the next day and finish the book. It has been kind of crazy how that has happened.

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

I don’t really think there is anything, I joined a children’s mastermind and a publishing mastermind so I got a really good foundation, but I do wish I would have started writing years ago, but things happen when they are supposed to.Miki Taylor Author

What was the hardest part of self-publishing?

Learning the process is the first thing, but the second hardest is just starting social media accounts from scratch again and marketing my book and my brand to get the word out about my upcoming books, trying to get on podcasts and interviews for magazines, etc.

Which book is your favorite and why?

It is really hard to pick a favorite book. As a child, I read everything by Judy Bloom, Beverly Cleary & Dr. Seuss.

Who are some of your favorite authors?

James Patterson, Nicholas Sparks, Judy Bloom, Beverly Cleary, Dr. Seuss, and Shel Silverstein.

What are you working on right now?

I am waiting on my first books illustrations to be completed and am working on my second book “Bentley Makes a Dump Cake

What’s next for you as an author?

To continue writing Bentley’s Adventures and growing my Bentley’s World Brand creating a fun space for children to visit, enjoy, and live and turning his adventures into a tv show.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Having published 10+ books that sell millions of copies, turning Bentley’s Adventures into a tv show & forming partnerships with amazing companies to expand the Bentley & Crew merchandise.

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

Time Travel so I could go back in time and relive time spent with my grandparents so I can remember every single minute of it.
