Interviews

Hi Lynette Louise, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Oltobooks : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Lynette Louise : I have been teaching and learning via entertainment since childhood. Writing plays, songs, and sermons that I would perform for local neighborhoods and churches. I seem to have been born with an innate desire to inspire people - so I've spent a lifetime learning inspirational things to teach. I now travel the globe (and am often referred to as "The Brain Broad") as an artist and an academic, a brainiac and a goofball, a healer and a heat-seeking missile. I am both a rock and a free spirit. But most of all I am a mother. I have eight children, they are all adults now. I adopted six, four of whom were on the autism spectrum and had various other challenges. All of my children have worked at creating miracles for themselves. In fact, my book "MIRACLES ARE MADE: A Real-Life Guide to Autism" describes in detail how we worked to create miracles together.
Oltobooks : What are your ambitions for your writing career?
Lynette Louise : To impart enough of the knowledge that I hold in my first published books so I can then write simply for my own pleasure. Both fiction and memoir-style books.
Oltobooks : When did you decide to become a writer?
Lynette Louise : I might have been four? Maybe five. When I was first learning to read I decided to be a writer. I’ve always gotten more pleasure from writing than reading, though it is a close race.
Hi Gail RaeGarwood, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Oltobooks : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Gail RaeGarwood : First of all, my name is really Gail Rae-Garwood. I was born in New York and started writing in fifth grade. Once I moved to Arizona with my daughter 18 years ago, I started writing in earnest. Teaching writing at the local colleges taught me quite a bit about writing.
Oltobooks : What are your ambitions for your writing career?
Gail RaeGarwood : While I publish a SlowItDownCKD (Chronic Kidney Disease) book annually, I'd like to write a sequel to Portal in Time (time travel romance) and try my hand at a murder mystery.
Oltobooks : When did you decide to become a writer?
Gail RaeGarwood : I became a writer when I was a divorced NYC high school teacher with two children at home. My supervisor knew I wrote for myself and asked me if I'd like to write for Research and Education Associates. But, really, I think I decided to become a writer way back in fifth grade when my poem was published in the school yearbook. Odd, but that's the last time I wrote poetry.
Hi Matthew Abuelo, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Oltobooks : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Matthew Abuelo : I’m a writer and performer, sometimes. I grew up in New York for better or worse. I did travel a lot as a kid because my father is in the military. Now I live my life working in politics. But poetry and short stories are my two mediums. I have four books out, Last American Roar and Organic Hotels, His third book "The News Factory" and “Forever Turn the Midnight Carousel” was released by Plain View Press,
Oltobooks : What are your ambitions for your writing career?
Matthew Abuelo : I think I reached them. I wanted to be known in some circles and I accomplished that. Now I just want to be a better writer.
Oltobooks : When did you decide to become a writer?
Matthew Abuelo : When I was very young.

Hi Nubi, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Oltobooks : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Nubi : I am first a music artist, but writing has always been something of a second passion for me, it comes easy, so writing poetry etc is another outlet for me to express myself, tell stories and entertain. I wrote a poem in high school once that won a national contest. I didn't think in my mind then that I wanted to write books, i just wanted to be creative and have the world recognize my creativity. Here I am years later living my dream in real time.
Oltobooks : What are your ambitions for your writing career?
Nubi : I would love to branch my writings out in a few ways; as a speaker, perhaps a couple books made into movies one day, and to always be able to show others how to do what I do (leverage their skills and talents into an additional income). Writing does so much for the writer and the reader, it's impossible to stick oneself in a box from it!
Oltobooks : When did you decide to become a writer?
Nubi : I decided to become a writer in 2011.
Hi Krishna K Verma, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Oltobooks : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Krishna K Verma : Hello, I’m Krishna K Verma. Reader. Dreamer. Published author. I’ve been fond of English Literature since I was eight. I love words. I used to jot new words learnt from stories I read. Then, I used to look for the opportunities to play with them in school assignments & debates which rewarded me with appreciation from teachers many a time. Apart from writing, I love travelling, reading books & listening music. I started writing when I was in the second year of my graduation. The city of joy confronted me with so many emotions that I started jotting them down on my diary and began writing short stories. Then, I wrote my first novel, “The Twirled November” in 2014. The paperback was published in 2017, which got overwhelming feedback from the readers throughout the country. After completing my post graduation, I worked as EXIM Assistant, as EXIM Executive, and currently working as a Business Development Manager. I moved from Kolkata in 2016. Currently, I live at my ancestral place in an outskirt town in Bihar. I write romantic stories with slices of comedy. Recently, I am writing a mystery-thriller story alongside one romantic story. Nothing but the love of my wonderful readers always encourages me to write more and more.
Oltobooks : What are your ambitions for your writing career?
Krishna K Verma : My ambition is to get my book(s) adapted into movie(s) featuring lead actors of the country. However, my long term goal is to write as much books to have my own library of books while spreading as much smiles in my wonderful readers' life.
Oltobooks : When did you decide to become a writer?
Krishna K Verma : I’ve been involved in writing since I was eight. However, I officially started writing in 2011 and completed my debut book in 2014.

Latest Poem

Don't I feel like a loser when I learn you're through with me.
It was news to everyone, especially to me.
Don't I feel pathetic, like there's something wrong with me.
She is far more beautiful than I could ever be.
I stand here null and solemn, though it must be written on my face,
that I've found before the world what you couldn't say to my face.
You blow right on by me with your new love, hand in hand.
So smug, haughty, and thoughtless.  You are not much of a man.
Filled with anger, through and through, I feel like I could drown.
I lift my glass and drink fast to chase the feeling down.
I close my eyes.  I still see your face.  Somehow I should have known.
You kill me inside with a passing glance, and now my heart grows cold.
So much time spent in a one sided love was wasted all on you.
Don't I feel like a loser for ever caring about you.

By Anne Rasico (Joyce)
