Bachman: I read that your penname was inspired by your grandmother, that’s very honorable, what can you tell us about her?
Alice: My pen name Is after my grandmother Alice Farrington-Lesher. She wanted to become a writer herself, but unfortunately was killed in a car accident. I never met her, but I like to think I got the writing bug from her so this was my way of honoring her, and taking her on the publishing journey with me. She was very creative, strong, and a very good woman.
Bachman: Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
Alice: I learned by writing that I have an imagination; I am a good story teller, although I have much to learn about editing, and getting the finished project out there. I’ve learned I am a strong woman and can accomplish so much if I just have faith, and keep trying. If I can get the readers I will keep going. I thank everyone for their support in reading the book without them none of this dream is possible.
