Secrets by Liz Schulte – Interview

Welcome to Author Liz Schulte
Many authors claim to have known their calling from a young age. Liz Schulte, however, didn’t always want to be an author. In fact, she had no clue. Liz wanted to be a veterinarian, then she wanted to be a lawyer, then she wanted to be a criminal profiler. In a valiant effort to keep from becoming Walter Mitty, Liz put pen to paper and began writing her first novel. It was at that moment she realized this is what she was meant to do. As a scribe she could be all of those things and so much more.
When Liz isn’t writing or on social networks she is inflicting movie quotes and trivia on people, reading, traveling, and hanging out with friends and family. Liz is a Midwest girl through and through, though she would be perfectly happy never having to shovel her driveway again. She has a love for all things spooky, supernatural, and snarky. Her favorite authors range from Edgar Allen Poe to Joseph Heller to Jane Austen to Jim Butcher and everything in between.

If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future? 
I would go into the past (so long as that whole space-time continuum thing doesn’t get wacky). With the past you have an idea of what you are getting into and you could witness some truly amazing moments in history.
If you could invite any 5 people to dinner who would you choose? 
I would want to have Edgar Allen Poe, Jane Austen, Hunter S. Thompson, Oscar Wilde, and Cary Grant to dinner. Poe, because what’s a dinner party without at least one tortured genius. Austen because I enjoy her rapier wit. Thompson because all parties need one person who isn’t afraid to try anything. Wilde because he would say wildly inappropriate things and make me laugh. And Cary Grant…because I love him.
If you were stranded on a desert island what 3 things would you want with you? 
If I were being practical I would choose water, a working satellite phone, and a good knife…but no one likes practical people so I will choose rum, sunscreen, and a devastatingly attractive man with survival skills.
One food you would never eat? 
Tongue. Just the thought of it makes me cringe.
Please tell us in one sentence only, why we should read your book. 
Mystery, romance, and a man so bad you’ll beg for more.
Any other books in the works? Goals for future projects? 
I have several projects coming up. My next book, since the Guardian Trilogy is completed, will be the start of a new series (that is connected to the Guardian Trilogy—same world) called Easy Bake Coven. It should be released by the end of this month. It is a story about witches and elves—I assure you these elves have never worked for Santa.
What inspired you to want to become a writer? 
Honestly, it was my mother. I always enjoyed writing and storytelling, but I never thought that I could be a writer. My mom kept after me and pushing me to at least try it and finally I did. Now I don’t think I could stop.
Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published. 
Talking to my readers has definitely been the most rewarding. I have had conversations about the themes and plot points, about religion and afterlife, and really anything you can think of. To know that people get that into what you have written is a wonderful feeling.
