 INTERVIEW 

Marianne Curley

El Templo #3 (abril 2008) por Javier Ruescas


What is your creation process?

I usually start by sitting down and thinking about my main characters. Once I have a visual idea of what they look like I start to place them in a situation. With the Guardians of Time Trilogy, I visualised Ethan first. I knew right from the start that I wanted to write about three people, two of them being siblings. It didn’t take long to visualise the siblings Isabel and Matt. As I started to flesh out their personalities, I decided I would write a novel based on each one of them.

When you write a book, how is a normal day in your life?

A normal day would consist of getting up around 7.00am so that I can be settled in front of the computer by 9.00am. I would then spend about six hours writing, though during the first-draft stage I never ‘switch off’. Ideas, plot changes, character’s conversations can come to me at any time, even through the night, so I always keep a notebook close by. After the first draft is complete and I move into the re-working, polishing and checking-facts stage, the pressure lifts considerably and the work schedule is not so intense. This is the part of the writing process I enjoy the most.

Where do you write normally?

I have set up a room in my house with a desk and computer and bookshelves loaded with resource books. I call it my home office. It is a room at the front of the house with a big window that overlooks a bush-type forest across the road. There are koala bears in the trees there and sometimes I catch myself staring into the treetops looking for one. I always use a computer to write my novels, but usually end up writing copious amounts of notes by hand.

  

Would you like to see your books in cinema? Why?

I would definitely like to see my books made into films. I have been told many times that my novels are very visual, and that the chapters are like scenes in a movie.

Have you ever thought about writing any non-fiction novel? And for adults?

Not at this stage, but perhaps one day I will write my autobiography.

Are you going to write more books?

Absolutely! In fact I have written two new books. They are currently with my agent who is trying to find publishers for them.
