I love reading children’s books..Omg. Wait. Did I just say that out loud? Lol. Now that I have kids, it gives me an excuse to read them.
It’s not everyday that I get to meet an author of a children’s book, so I was stoked to be able to do a Q&A session with Carole P. Roman.
I started writing in 2012 when my kids dared me to write a book. I started with Captain No Beard and forty books later, I am doing about 6 books per year.
2. Was this your dream job as a kid? If not, what did you want to be?
I always wanted to be a writer, but my first dream was being an actress. My parents urged me to become a teacher, because of the stability and I ended up owning several businesses unrelated to anything in my life. We employ hundreds of people. I have made an impact in my field, starting with nothing, so I do have my dream job. Writing is icing on a very large cake.
3. What is your favorite genre?
Love romance, regency is my favorite. I love to read history non-fiction. I’ll read anything, though. I have to read like I have to breathe.
4. Least favorite genre?
5. Is writing your full-time job? Or do you have a career outside of writing?
I am president of several corporations ranging from transportation to real estate. All the businesses are family owned and I have fun every day of my life.
6. If you could be any character, who would it be and why?
My favorite books are ShoGun. I loved the character Blackthorn- his sense of adventure and ability to learn.
7. What genre do you write about?
Children’s’ fiction and non-fiction
8. What is/are your current release(s)?
If You Were Me and Lived on…Mars. It’s part of my culture series and takes children on a trip out of this world. This book explores what life would be like on the Red Planet.
I also just finished One to Ten Squirrel’s Bad Day which is a book about coping when problems seem overwhelming. Lastly, If You Were Me and lived in…the Ancient Mali Empire was released. It touches on life for a young girl living under Mansa Musa’s rule. It explains the customs and culture of the vast Mali empire.
