As an avid reader, it is always a privilege to get to know the authors behind the scenes. I've been fascinated to learn what motivates authors to write the stories they do. Does a story come from personal experience or is it purely a figment of an author's imagination?


Are the authors writing full-time or, like me, do they hold others jobs and write on the side, hoping to make a living at it in the future? Do they write as a hobby but decide to publish a book to meet a goal they had set out to accomplish at one point in their lives?


Of course, it's always nice to learn about the people who form their worlds: their families and friends, their mentors and so on. 


This part of the site was created to satiate this curiosity of mine and to bring to you a few respected authors with whom I've had the pleasure of crossing paths.


Please note: if I've reviewed your book and there is no author interview, please know that I will send one when I'm ready to publish it or that I've tried to contact you but have had no success. If one of your titles have been reviewed at Budden Book Reviews and you would like to be interviewed, please send me an e-mail at norma (at) buddenbookreviews (dot com).


Please take a look at the menu above which will provide a list of all of the authors interviewed, so far, at Budden Book Reviews.


My personal congratulations go out to any author featured on this site; it means you stand out - keeping in mind that I will never live long enough to read every book, nor every author's work.


Remember: there will always be another book and author I will have the privilege of discovering. Come again! You never know. The next book might be yours!
