Where Writers And Authors Meet Interviews:
D.T. Linda Gross was our Featured Spotlight author on the week of December 2nd and visitors were encouraged to ask Linda some of their own questions! Here is a link to that Spotlight!
What made you decide to write a book for men?
I’m sick and tired of the last 40 years of male bashing. I think men need their voice back. also, I wrote to men as there are 500+ relationship books on the market for women. too much competition.
Any new books in the works?
I will make a mini/pocket book for the Caveman Formula as many of my readers have asked for a condensed version. the next book in the works is for Teens. while I was writing the Men’s book, many teens wrote me to say they didn’t want to unlearn bad habits. they wanted to know how to do it the right way from the get-go.
What do you like to in your spare time?
Reading, skiing, wine tasting, dining, movies, decorating are a few.
Jo Linsdell asks:
What made you want to be a writer?
After my divorce, I dated a guy who got me hooked pretty deep. I tried to figure out why that was. I figured if I could dissect it and teach it to other men, I would have a winner. he only did 3% more than most men, but in that 3%, he packed a punch. I came home after my second date with him. I bolted out of bed at 4am! I had to RUN to my computer to write things down. that started my writing career. I couldn’t not write. I haven’t stopped writing since.
When interviewing all those men for your book, what was the most surprising thing you discovered?
the most surprising thing to me, since most people so very self-centered, they assume that the opposite sex works/thinks just like they do. of course, this is defeatist behavior. once you understand how the sexes are different, its a piece of cake to move forward from there. the most surprising thing from my (male) readers was “Why doesn’t Nice Guy work?”
From Admin Virginia- I LOVE LOVE LOVE your idea for a book just for teens! Your work is awesome Linda! Good luck!
