This Girl Loves Books had the pleasure of interviewing Tracy Krimmer :)
Describe your personality in three words………
Weird. Passionate. Nosey.
Describe your writing style in three words…….
Funny. Quirky. Real.
*Disclaimer – my first book, Pieces of it All, is Women’s Fiction, and of a more serious tone.
Which is your favourite chapter that you have wrote and why?
The first chapter of my latest release, Caching In. I worked for a solid week on perfecting that chapter before I moved forward. It set the tone for the entire book, and I proved to myself I can write something funny.
What has been your toughest criticism given to you as an author? What has been your best compliment?
My toughest was when I published my first book, which is no longer available. Beta readers were recommended, and at that time, I had no idea what that was! Now I use them, and love them! My best compliment is when someone private messaged me and told me how much they loved the book and read it at a very important time in their life.
Is there a message in novel/novels that you want your readers to grasp?
Each novel is different. I want people to take from my books what they will. I don’t set out to write a book with a theme in mind. It sort of builds itself throughout the process. I hope they read the book and enjoy it. That’s it!
What advice would you give to aspiring authors?
It’s cliché, but so true. KEEP WRITING. My friend and critique partner S.J. Pajonas says “Head down, keep writing.” That is so true. You must keep writing, and move past any self-doubt, or you won’t get anywhere.
If Hollywood made a movie about your life , whom would like to play the lead role?
Drew Barrymore, only because I have a mad crush on her.
If you were a superhero, what would you want your powers to be?
This can be dangerous, I think. I would love to be able to read minds, but I’m not so sure I want to know what everyone is thinking. The one thing I hate doing everyday is emptying the dishwasher, so, I think if I could snap my fingers and that would be done, I’d be happy!
If you could meet one of your own characters who would it be and why?
I think it would have to be Jay, the character in my upcoming book. I can’t say much yet, but he’s a doctor, and super sweet, and very sarcastic. And I model him after Zachary Levi, who’s fantastic.
Most embarrassing moment?
I have many, but I was pretty embarrassed when I moved into my very first apartment, and walked right into the wrong one. Why didn’t those people lock their door?
Where do you see yourself in ten years?
Ten years older. Really. That’s about it. I have absolutely no clue. Hopefully with ten more books under my belt, if not twenty.
What’s your idea of happiness?
A great day of writing followed by a night of giggles with my family. Best of both worlds.
What's your greatest fear?
I never like this question. I have many, and I don’t like putting them out there. Maybe that’s my fear – having my fears known!
What question have you always wanted to be asked?
“How does it feel to be a bestselling author?”
How would you answer it?
Well, if asked right now, I would say “I have no idea!” But, I hope one day to answer that and say “Surreal.”
Hard or Soft?
Depends what you’re talking about J
Early bird or Night owl?
Coffee or Tea?
Right handed or Left handed?
Right, though I have 2 left feet.
Cake or Cookies?
