Hello, and Welcome Readers and Friends,
Today we have Author, A. Gavazzoni as our guest author interview and she has just released her second novel of her romance psychological thriller series. Her first book titled; “Behind The Door: Hidden Motives – book one” has just received a “Golden Box Books Judges Choice” book award! She has released book two titled; ” Lara’s Journal: A Sizzling Psychological Thriller” that I feel will HIT #1 on Amazon Kindle soon. So let’s read and learn more about this beautiful Brazilian Lawyer by day and writer of steamy suspense by night, Author, A. (Adriana) Gavazzoni . . . .
(Q) Tell us a little about your new release of Lara’s Journal – book two and how it differs from your first novel ‘Behind the Door’?
“Lara´s Journal is the sequel to Behind The Door, and in this new novel, the reader is going to discover the hidden motives behind Lara´s behavior as an adult. Readers will get to know her, learning about her childhood through her college years.
Simone suffers deep changes in this second novel, thanks to the traumas she endured in the first book. In Lara’s Journey, Simone decides to enjoy life in a different way. The new book contains mystery, murder, and all criminal scenes were checked and endorsed by a former FBI agent, so they are as realistic as possible.
The book is also steamy as hell, so prepare for sex beyond any limits—even more scandalous than what readers encountered in Behind The Door”…
(Q) How many books will be in your novel series?
I believe I’m going to write at least three…but I don´t put reins on or apply rules to my imagination; I let it run free!
(Q) What writing challenges did you have with Book Two? Was it more difficult to write than ‘Behind The Door’?
Book two has many criminal situations that required a frequent consultation with FBI agents, and also, I had to study a lot of psychiatry to create Lara and the other characters, but I don´t think writing Lara’s Journey was more difficult than writing Behind The Door, I believe the first novel was more difficult because it was the first one.
One difficulty I really had was to cut the second novel before it reached a thousand pages…and hold on to the rest of the story, keeping it in my mind for book number three.
(Q) Tell us about yourself?
Well…I am from Brazil…and I am a very active person, or better, I am hyperactive. Professionally I’m a lawyer and a writer…I love to dance, to work out, to read and to cook ( I can cook some amazing dishes and now I’m learning Indian Cook…spicy!!!!). I am also addicted to movies.I love to learn foreigner languages and culture ( I speak English, French, Spanish and Portuguese) and I travel abroad whenever I can. I love art and I’m a museum rat and passionate about history. I love animals. All kind of animals. And I have two dogs, two beautiful girls, Gaia and Juno.
(Q) What inspires you to write?
Human nature inspired me. I love to observe people and try to guess why they behave the way they do…it’s all about hidden motives and we all have ours.
(Q) Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Whenever I have an idea for a scene I send messages to myself (whats app and e-mails) LOL.
(Q) What authors, or books have influenced you?
So many marvelous writers inspired me…to start with the classical ones like Emily Bronte, Stendhal, Dumas, Saad Marquis, Margaret Mitchell and modern ones like Marc Levy, Tom Clancy, Dan Brown, John Grisham and Colleen McCullough …but I could list a hundred here…the poems of Alisson Matos – a Brazilian writer – from Baudelaire to Allan Poe.
(Q) Do you have any advice for new authors? And what was the best advice you have gotten?
For writers, if you love to write, believe you are going to be a published writer/author and never give up on your dream! Now, the best overall advice I ever heard came from my father; “learn everything you can, Nobody can take knowledge from you.”
(Q) Now to round out your interview, a few personal detail. What is your favorite color and favorite foods?
My favorite color is red, and I don´t know if I have a favorite food, as I enjoy trying everything, but I really love any kind of spicy food—Thai, Indian, Brazilian Bahía´s food. I take great pleasure in the dining experience and think of it as a sensual activity, so, whenever I can…I try something really different.
(Q) And last, what is one “secret” about you that readers don’t know or can’t find to about you?
I´m an open person, so if someone asks me a direct question, I will answer. I don’t think I have any deep, dark secrets or skeletons in my closet, but there is one thing people might not guess about me—I´m very childlike, and I love to watch cartoons, Disney movies, and go to amusement parks. Nothing is more fun to me than a crazy-dangerous roller coaster that causes me to shout and scream until I’m hoarse! LOL!
