Author Interview – Merry Farmer @merryfarmer20

What other jobs have you had in your life?  I’ve had a lot of typical admin jobs to make money, but I’ve also been a hairdresser, a teacher, and an actress at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire (a long, long time ago).

If you could study any subject at university what would you pick?  Well, I have two bachelor’s degrees in History, one with a co-major in Education, and a master’s degree in Theater right now.  If I had my way, I’d go back and get a master’s degree in History and teach on the side of my writing.  Actually, I think that’s very likely for my future.  I already teach history classes online for my RWA chapter, so….

If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?  I’m not convinced I would want to live in one place, actually.  I prefer cooler weather to warm weather, so no tropical climates.  With the exception of India.  One of my best friends is Indian and she’s promised to take me home with her someday.  I feel very drawn to the Hampshire region of the UK and to the maritime provinces of Canada.  Maybe I lived there in past lives?

How do you write – lap top, pen, paper, in bed, at a desk?  I used to write with a pen in spiral-bound notebooks.  As soon as I realized that it takes five times longer to type out handwritten work, I invested a lot of time in learning to type.  Now I type so much faster than I write by hand that it just makes sense to write on a computer.  I split my time between my desktop and my laptop.

Where do you get support from? Do you have friends in the industry?  I have made so many truly wonderful friends in the romance world through the Romance Writers of America.  Some of my go-to supporters and friends are Eliza Knight, Callie Hutton, Ella Quinn, Tracy Brogan, Ashley York, and several others who aren’t published yet.  Too many to name, actually.  Having other writer friends is invaluable, both in terms of friendship and networking.
