Mason Cooley said, “Reading gives us some place to go when we have to stay where we are.”
A Center Stage Moment shines a spotlight on writers who give us great places to visit with the characters we love and want to call friends.
Today, I have the pleasure of introducing to you Pavan Kaur!
Without further ado, here’s her interview.
I love reading the bios of authors. Many of them did not start out as writers. Sometimes people stumble upon the craft. Did you always want to be a writer? No. I never in a million years thought I would have a book out, never mind a series.
Why did you choose to write your genre? This story came to me through a dream, and it didn’t leave me, so Romance for me is something I came to love to write.
What are you currently working on? I am working on an Erotica/Romance Novel, which I am very excited about. If you follow me on Facebook, you will find out all the information.
What motivated the plot of your latest book? The Moving Series was motivated by the dreams, I kept having about the characters.
What was the hardest story for you to write? The Moving Series was a hard story to write for me, because of the subject it revolves around. There are parts in the story that I found I had to stop writing, to think about before I continued to write.
What process do you use to plan your novels? I have a notepad, where I will write down all my notes for my story. Once I have a few things written down, I will start planning what will happen within the story, where I want it to go. Then I slowly fill in the blanks. Once I have finished the first draft, I put it away for a week. When I come back to it, I have to admit, there is so much that I’ll take out. Those things I feel don’t fit the story well.
Who has been your favorite character to write and why? In the Moving Series, I loved writing Brian’s character. He was the one keeping everything together for the couple, Kim and Nick. A shoulder to lean on for Kim, and a best friend with great advice for Nick.
Do any of your characters reflect facets of your personality? No, not really. I think that I am a lot more trusting than Kim, but one thing that Kim and I have in common is the love for our family.
Have you ever experienced writer’s block? If so, how did you overcome it? All the time. I’ll be on a roll, writing, then nothing. It’s like my characters have been taken out of my head, and disappeared somewhere. To help me overcome writer’s block, I bake. It’s a way for me to relax, and have time to myself. It has worked for me so far. A day of baking and I will be writing again the following day.
If you were to choose another genre to write in, what would it be? Paranormal. I think it would be a good genre to write, and push me in my writing. Who knows, I might even try my hand at writing a story.
Which authors inspire you? I have to say J.K Rowling, because even though she got so many letters of rejection, she still followed her dream, and to me this is something that always pushes me to follow my dreams.
What novel would you read multiple times? I love Lord of the Rings, and can read them over and over again. The writing and imagery in the storytelling are just amazing. You really get lost in the story.
If you could meet anyone in the world, alive or deceased, who would it be and why? At this moment in time, I would love to meet Jon Snow from “Game of Thrones”, just so I can ask him if he is alive or dead.
What is your favorite quote?
What is your favorite animal, real or imaginary? Dolphin, I think they are so cute.
What is your favorite color? Ice Blue.
