To encourage our Official Zoomer Book Club members to get deep within the book's pages (as well as get involved with the interview process!), we want as many questions submitted here for Joy Fielding from our Official Zoomer Book Club members.
Need some motivation to do this? Well, if you submit a question below, you just might be the lucky winner of a FREE Kobo e-Reader (not to mention have the chance to exclusively chat on-air with Joy Fielding!)
Here's how to enter:
I hope I'm not working the day of your live interview as I'd love to participate. I have a question for you. Do you see Air Canada employees featuring in your next book? Haha that may be a good payback for their treatment of you.
I enjoyed reading your letter and now have some of your books on order from my local library. Thank you.
I had the pleasure of meeting you at the Word on the Street in Toronto this year. I have read so many of your books, but my absolute favourite is "Still Life". When I read your books, I can't seem to put them down and most times stay up all night to finish them. Then, of course, I'm sorry that there isn't more to read. You are my author of choice.
Where do you get the ideas for your books?
This may sound funny, but I have had dreams and when I wake up, I think that
would make one heck of a story. I am always jotting down ideas from dreams or
personal experiences. Writing is more of a hobbie for me at this time.
I've always wondered how an author writes a book with several different threads (or stories). Do you write each thread separately and then combine them in the whole story or do you advance each one at the same time?
Hi there....Just wondering how you have kept a 30year plus marriage "going?"......
The setting for your books is in American cities. Is this because American cities are more familiar to readers
world wide or are there other reasons? I am just thinking of this because of another Canadian author Giles Blunt who sets his Cardinal novels in Northern Ontario which makes it seem so exotic (Canada that is)
Oh, so many questions I'd like to ask, including many listed here. I guess my first, though, would be: Who is your favourite character creation?
