Author Spotlight: Anna LaVerne

This week’s author is Anna LaVerne. I’m not as familiar with her as I am with the authors I have met in Savannah. She seems like a very sweet woman. I’m honored that I have gotten the chance to become acquainted with her and I see a beautiful friendship in our future. I also see many wonderful things in her future.

I am also currently working on the third book to my Mystic Harem Trilogy. I have plans to release that book in December 2021

2.     What was the moment you knew you wanted to be an author? 

As a kid I would make up crazy stories and share them with everyone. My mom always told me that I should be a writer. It stuck. Unfortunately, I am dyslexic, so it wasn’t until I fell in love with reading that being an author really stuck with me. I purchased Pride and Prejudice from a scholastic book fair, because I was determined to learn to read better. I read the book over and over again. I was in the fifth grade and owe my love of literature and ability to read well to Jane Austin.

  1. What are some things you do to overcome doubts about your writing?

My editing skills and dyslexia. The first book I ever released, Elmora, was hit bad with reviews. I didn’t have the money or resources to hire an editor properly and had entirely too much faith in my own lacking abilities. Thankfully, I made some amazing connections and was able to get my first work edited and re- released.  Unfortunately, the damage was done. I decided to keep my pen name and my first work available as a reminder of how much harder I have to work. I will always have insecurities about my writing, but I won’t stop because this is what I love to do.

4.     Have any actual life experiences reflected in your writing? 

In my first novel, Elmora, I drew some from my own life experiences, however I ultimately try to separate my stories from my real life.
