In our new author series, we’ll be offering a clairvoyant peek behind the veil of who and what makes up TRANSCENDENT. Here’s a glimpse at Linda G. Hill and her story “Snooze.”
ABOUT THE STORY
What inspired your story?
I was inspired by the times, infrequent as they are, that I’ve been woken up by the alarm and returned to my dream after hitting the snooze button.
Did you have to do any research? If so, what kind? What did you learn?
I did absolutely no research for this story. It’s entirely a product of my weird imagination.
Tell be about the setting you chose and how it influences your work.
The story takes place in modern day, in a city much like any other.
What would you like readers to take away from your story?
Pure entertainment. And an intense desire to read more of my work. 😉
Which phrase are you most proud of in this story?
“It took weeks to come to terms with hitting the snooze button whilst laying in a puddle of my own making, but I needed to know who the killer was.”
If your story was front-page news, what would the headline be?
MAN GOES TO GREAT LENGTHS TO SAVE THE WOMAN, LITERALLY, OF HIS DREAMS.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
What was the best money you ever spent as a writer?
That’s hard to say. Paying an editor, travelling to research settings, advertising … it’s all important.
If you had to put your name on someone else’s book/story, which would it be and why?
Oooh, boy. I’d have to say Memoirs of a Geisha. That must have been a fascinating story to research. And I adore Japan. I’ve visited Gion in Kyoto, where the story takes place.
When did you decide to take writing seriously?
In 2004 (I think), when I first participated in NaNoWriMo and realized I could actually write a book, I knew I would never be able to stop.
If you could choose a single superpower, what would it be and why?
I’d love to travel without the worry of getting to where I’m going. That’s always the most stressful part for me, whether it’s by train, plane, or automobile. So I guess I’d need the power to transport myself.
