Interviu: Rachel Wade + Reminder concurs

Thank you so much for this interview and I’m really sorry I couldn’t post it faster 🙂


Tell us about your last book, what is it about?

Love and Relativity is my latest contemporary romance. It’s a friends-to-lovers story about two young people in their early twenties who work and live on a small island in Florida. They share one tragic night together and it’s that bond that leads them on a journey of discovering what love, forgiveness, and acceptance really mean. It’s a story about grief and how we all handle it differently, and how letting go of the past is the only way to move on. 

How you’d describe it’s characters?

I’d describe Emma as a contradictory character. She’s strong and knows what she wants, so she’s a hard worker and has a lot of ambition, but her inability to forgive herself hinders her, so she’s also very scared and stubborn. Jackson is fun loving, real, and doesn’t recognize his own potential.

What books have most influenced your life most?

No Country for Old Men, White Oleander, and Bel Ami have influenced my writing and my life. They inspire me in many different ways.

What are your current projects?

I’m working on a new apocalyptic sci-fi series, The Keepers Trilogy, as well as a new drama, The Replacement, and a New Adult romance, Always and Foreverland. I’m basically writing nonstop.

Name one person that you feel supported you outside of family members.

My best friend and guardian angel, Patricia. She’s like a mother and a best friend. Technically, I consider her family, even though she isn’t by blood. She’s my biggest supporter and has inspired and influenced me in so many ways. She taught me to believe in myself.

What books/authors have influenced your writing?

Authors such as Cormac McCarthy, Guy de Maupassant, and many film makers, especially Tim Burton. Films such as Into the Wild, Detachment, and La Vie en Rose have been huge sources of inspiration.

Do you ever experience writer’s block?
I’m not sure I really believe in writer’s block. I think we can feel uninspired, and that it sometimes means we have to step away from whatever we’re working on so we can revisit it with a fresh perspective. But I think we can always force ourself to keep writing, even when we aren’t sure which direction to take the story. If I feel uninspired, I stop working on that manuscript and work on something else for a while instead. I can always force myself to keep writing, but the result feels unnatural that way. I’d much rather work on something else until I feel like I can give the story something it deserves.

Thank you so much for inviting me to your lovely blog. I’m honored and I hope to visit your beautiful country someday!

Much love,

Spune-ne despre ultima ta carte, despre ce este?

Love and Relativity este ultima mea carte de dragoste contemporana. Este o poveste „prieteni-spre-iubiti” despre doi tineri, abia de 20 de ani care traiesc si munces intr-un oras mic din Florida. Ei impart o noapte tragica si aceasta legatura care ii conduce printr-o calatorie a descoperirii a ceea ce inseamna de fapt dragostea, iertarea si acceptarea. Este o poveste despre durere cu care noi toti ne descurcam in moduri diferite si despre faptul ca doar lasand trecutul in urma putem sa trecem mai departe

Cum ai descrie personajele cartii?

As descri-o pe Emma ca avand un caracter contradictoriu. E puternica si stie ce vrea deci e genul care munceste din greu si are multa ambitie, dar incapacitatea ei de a se ierta pe ea insasi o impiedica, deci  ea este atat speriata cat si incapatanata. Jackson este distractiv, iubitor, real si nu-si recunoaste propriul potential.

Ce carti ti-au influentat viata cel mai mult?

„No Country for Old Men” ; „White Oleander” si „Bel Ami” mi-au influentat scrisul si viata. Ma inspira in moduri diferite.

La ce lucrezi in acest moment?

Lucrez la o serie noua, SF – apocaliptica, trilogia „The Keepers”;la o noua drama „The Replacement” si la o poveste romantica New Adult „Alway and Foreverland”. Practic scriu nonstop.

Numeste o persoana care te-a sustinut inafara familiei

Prietena mea cea mai buna si ingerul meu pazitor, Patricia. Ea e ca o mama si o cea mai buna prietena. O consider familie, chiar daca nu si de sange. Ea e cel mai mare sustinator si m-a inspirat si influentat in multe feluri. M-a invatat sa am incredere in mine.

Ce carti/autori ti-au influentat felul de a scrie?

Autori ca si Cormac McCarthy, Guy de Maupassant si multi realizatori de film, in special Tim Burton. Filme ca „Into the Wild” „Detachement” si „La Vie en Rose” au fost surse imense de inspiratie.

Experimentezi „blocajul scriitorului”?

Nu sunt sigura daca eu cred intr-adevar in blocajul scriitorului. Cred ca ne putem simti neinspirati, iar asta inseamna uneori ca trebuie sa ne departam de orice lucram in acel moment ca ne intoarcem cu o perspectiva noua. Dar cred ca ne putem forta sa scriem in continuare, chiar daca nu stim in ce directie o va lua povestea. Daca ma simt neinspirata, ma opresc din scrisul acelei povesti si lucrez la altceva un timp. Pot sa ma fortez sa scriu oricand, dar rezultatul se simte „fortat” in acest mod. As prefara sa lucrez la altceva pana cand voi simti ca pot da povestii respective ceva ce merita.

Multumesc pentru ca mai invitat pe blogul tau dragut. Sunt onorata si sper sa-ti pot vizita frumoasa tara candva!

Multa dragoste,
