Welcome New Author Tracy Gardner Beno!

E-Lit Books is growing! We welcome debut author Tracy Gardner Beno to the family by asking her a few of our most burning questions:

Q: What can readers expect from your as yet untitled first book?
TGB: My first book is an everywoman story with a twist. It follows two childhood friends who were separated by mysterious circumstances and reunited as adults.
Q: What's been the toughest challenge of the writing process?
TGB: The challenge is trying to make the story fall into place. with this book, I always knew where it would start and how it would end, and I had a good idea of the stepping stones along the way. But aside from the plot, I wanted both women to grow and achieve a certain peace.
Q: How much of your own personality can be found in the characters?
TGB: A LOT. Some characters and storylines more than others. Many of my characters are also an amalgam of several people I've known.
Q: How do you find inspiration to write?
TGB: My best ideas come to me when I'm either driving or showering. Not sure why, but it is a little inconvenient that both those prevent me from jotting down anything until later! I haven't really gone looking for inspiration. Once I've met my characters and brought them to life, the writing becomes addictive.
Q: What do you do when you're not writing?
TGB: I have a great husband and two fun, busy kids to keep up with, as well as a day job as a Registered Nurse. When the weather allows, nothing is more fun than a weekend camping trip with my family and our two dogs. Aside from that, I enjoy listening to muysic, finding time for girlfriend therapy and of course reading.

Stay tuned for more updates on Tracy's new book!
