Is there any part in writing you don’t like?

 

Writer’s block and editing.

 

When you have time for yourself, what do you like to read?

 

Anything fantasy with dragons, werewolves, Greek mythology or just plain fantasy.

 

What is your all-time favorite movie?

 

For Charlie it’s the Tolkien Lord of the Rings trilogy. For me it would have to be The Man from Snowy River.

 

Are there any specific authors that you admire?

 

Christopher Paolini, Stephen King, Rick Riordan, Louis Lamoure are among some of the ones we admire.

 

If there was one author you could meet with and learn from, who would that be?

 

For Charlie it would be Christopher Paolini and for me it would probably be Rick Riordan.

 

What advice would you give to aspiring writers?

 

Keep moving forward, keep trying and never give up even if it means publishing yourself.

 

Are there any tips you could give that you learned along your path of picking up the pen to having a published novel?

 

Always be in learning mode and never think you know everything.

 

Do you plan on being a full time writer, or do you have other career plans?

How long have you been writing?

 

We have been writing for over 4 years now and someday we are planning on being full time writers but in the meantime Charlie is going to school to become a mechanic and I am a customer service rep.

 

Do you prefer Ebook, paperback, or hardcover?

 

We actually both prefer paperback books. It’s something you can hold in your hand and say, “I wrote this.”

 

 

Please share your author bio and links to your books so readers can connect with you and your books!

Bio Charles Siefken (1992-present) is a recent graduate of high school. This is his first book of many to be published. He currently resides in rural central Iowa where he enjoys reading sci/fi books and playing video games among other things. He currently works at a local auto mechanics shop and will be attending college this fall to get a degree as well. Christopher Paolini was his inspiration to become a writer.

 

Wendy Siefken (1966-Present)Currently working full time from home on writing stories and now a virtual assistant to those in need of an extra pair of hands online. Wendy lives on a farm with her family and enjoys reading, gardening and other activities with her family and friends. This is our first publication with many more to follow. This all started as a school project for her youngest son and business partner, Charles Siefken, which has grown into a desire to be published.
The book is a journey into the fantasy realm of what if’s. Zombies took over the world? What if werewolves were real? What if dragons were really not from earth but from another planet? I hope you enjoy this YA book. This book is ideal for a young reader who you may not want reading a book with a lot of blood and gore. This book doesn’t have that. It has a story without all the graphics of a battle.
