{Interview} Ellie Douglas

 
 
CHHR: Please give a brief introduction here.
Hi, I’m Ellie Douglas and I’m a mother to four ankle biting zombie children. I live in New Zealand, I’m half Greek and half New Zealander. I love life and love being able to give a reader something they haven’t read before. I love to challenge myself and am always striving to be better. I’m a summer girl and a hater of winter. I love movies of all genre’s and of course I love to read. My family is everything to me. I’m also a huge The Walking Dead Fan! :)
  
CHHR: When did you realize you wanted to be a writer?
I would have to say it was while I was inside utero lol OK you know I’m kidding. I wanted to be a writer when I was a little girl.
CHHR: What does your writing schedule look like? 
My writing schedule is pretty much all over the place. I don’t have any routine to it, I just write when I can :)
CHHR: Do you have any interesting writing rituals? If so, what are they?
CHHR: Do you like writing short stories or novels?
Both :)
CHHR: How is the horror scene where you live?
It is pretty good, though being in New Zealand it is of course not on the bigger scale as I would like.
CHHR: Do you use outlines or do you go with the flow?
No, when I get an idea I run with it, so I am more of the go with the flow kind of writer :)

 

CHHR: How did publishing your first book or short story change your writing process?
I learned very quickly that one must have a very good editor and one must do research. So now I know that I make sure I have done both, many times over :)
CHHR: What do you think makes a good horror story? 
Believability and strong characters.
CHHR: What are you currently working on?
I’m working on a ‘horror anthology’ to be released this Halloween
CHHR: What is in your TBR pile?
Mostly horror books and far too many to list and name them all.
CHHR: What is the last book that scared you?
I hate to say it, but none yet.
CHHR: What is your favorite horror book?
Misery by Stephen King
CHHR: What is your favorite horror film?
Wrong Turn (All of them)
CHHR: What type of music do you listen to? What’s your favorite album?
I grew up in the 80’s so I love a lot of 80’s music and currently I would have to say that Dua Lipa is high on the list as is Willy William.
CHHR: What is your spirit animal?
Wolf
CHHR: What is your favorite beer?
I don’t drink beer but I love cocktails.
CHHR: If you could have a beer with one author, who would it be?

If I drank it, it would be with Stephen King
