Interviews

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 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.
Hi Toby Oliver, thank you for agreeing to this interview.
Oltobooks : Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
Toby Oliver : I was born in London, England, and spent most of my life working for the government. I grew up in a lovely Georgian House in an area called Kennington. After leaving full-time employment in 2007, I guess I fulfilled two lifelong ambitions, firstly moving to the beautiful countryside of West Sussex with my family and much loved Yorkshire Terrier and King Charles Spaniel, where I love nothing more than walking my dogs on the South Downs, and exploring its breath taking views. As a child I was encouraged to read, I suppose the catalyst of both my love of reading and writing was a novel called the Children of the New Forest, set in the time of the English Civil War by Frederick Marryat. It was the first time a book not only captured my imagination but transported into the lives of the characters. It was for me a pivotal moment.

Oltobooks : When did you decide to become a writer?
Toby Oliver : As I said earlier, my inspiration was the kid's novel Children of the New Forest. Shortly afterward, I began writing short stories, they may have been only a couple of pages long, but I was always encouraged by my mom, who was an avid reader, and often, as a child, made up her own magical night-time stories.

Latest Poem

The most sensitive, yet, most supportive,
The most foolish, yet, inseparable;
Makes you know your feelings and motive,
Never lets you lose the confidence of being viable.

That is our heart. Being the central part of our blood
circulation system with arteries and veins coming in and out from the system, it is having an invaluable and infallible integral role in the literary and spiritual phases of one’s life.
