Author Interview – Liz Schulte


How has your upbringing influenced your writing? My family has always been very close and very supportive. I think their constant encouragement have given me a foundation of confidence to build on.

Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? I used to read all the time. My mom would take me to the library every week and I would check out the maximum number of books and read them all. It wasn’t long before I started writing short stories, but I didn’t truly become interested in writing as a career until I wrote my first novel.

When and why did you begin writing? I began writing after a lot of encouragement from my mom. She kept telling me I should try writing so I finally sat down and did it. I think it was 2008. I wrote my mystery novel then I had no idea what to do with it. The traditional method of publishing wasn’t for me, but the more I looked into things the more appealing self-publishing looked to me.

How long have you been writing? Since 2008, but I didn’t publish my first book until 2011.

When did you first know you could be a writer? When people read my first book and raved about it. That was the first time I truly believed that writing could be more than just fun.

What inspires you to write and why? Life. I can hardly go through a week without a new idea or a new scene or piece of dialogue that begs to be put on paper. I find inspiration in everything.

What genre are you most comfortable writing? I write mystery and paranormal romance, but I have plans to expand into other genres as well. I think the only genre I wouldn’t want to try is nonfiction.

Who or what influenced your writing once you began? My writer’s group. I was lucky to join a wonderful and supportive group who were in a similar phase in their writing as I was. I have made wonderful friends with these people and they so often inspire me and prop me up with I feel down.
