About the Author

Cathy Vickers 01New author and Indie author of Fantasy by night. Sell vintage and antique items via e-commerce by day. Four grown up children and 2 wee grand children. Three dogs (now two as I lost my oldest companion to cancer) and and a very curios cat who follows us on dog walks.

*Guardian Dragons, Book 1 on Amazon in kindle version and paperback.
*Flight of a Changeling, Book 2 on Amazon as Paperback.

Love to write but if I’m honest I don’t much enjoy the computer work I have to do as an Indie author, it is very time consuming. So many other things I’d much rather be doing. But, there you go, it has to be done so I’d better get working on it.

Interview with the Author:
Question: What have you published recently?
Adela was the most recent being published the last week of November and The Guardian was published in Summer.

Question: How, and when, did you decide to become a writer?
I have had nudging from teachers ever since the 8th grade and one day someone pulled my card and said I would never publish anything. Pushing me to do something doesn’t touch me much, but telling me I cannot results in quick actions.

Question: Where can we find your published writing?
Amazon

Question: What is a typical day like for you as a writer?
I guess this is the part that you want me to give a Hank Moody response, but to be honest I write in short stints; normally, I will get an idea and sit down for two weeks after work and pound out a story. My daily life involves, Aikido, I am a member of Interregional Federation of Aikido Aikikai of Crimea & Sevastopol, where I study from great men and women, but Sensei  Louis Van Thieghem from Belgium and  Sensei Sergei Sheremetyev from Ukraine  are my favourite two. Sensei Thieghem has been instrumental in me learning to control my Ki and finding myself.

Question: What are your favorite characters that you have created?
Tell us about them? For me it would have to be Adela, she is so strong and sexy with moral ideals that makes her want to protect all of them around her. To be honest, people ask me who influenced this character and I had thought and thought about it and there is only one of my friends that it could be, Elena Romanova  is the only one it could be, she came to America speaking no English and had created her own Empire. We have joked about her coming from Ukraine and us switching places. Of all of my friends I am most proud and in awe of what she has done. I think too often women characters are depicted as damaged items that need to be saved by a man, but for me I see the female Senseis that are around me and other powerful women in my life and do my best to represent them.

Question: do you find you “mentally edit” other writers’ works as you read them? Does doing this help you or bother you?
No, I tend to sit back and rather enjoy the story or not. Just because I do not enjoy a story, does not mean it is a bad story, it just means it is not my cup of tea.

Question: What music do you listen to, while writing?
Halestorm, The Slot, Disturbed, and Bleeding in Stereo.

Question: What do you eat while writing?
That is always changing; it just depends on my mood.

Four for Fun:
What is your favourite non-alcoholic drink?  Well that would be a good black tea.
What is your favourite cartoon character?  Optimise Prime
What is your favourite movie of all time?  Under World
What do you like to do for fun or just to relax?  I do a lot of different sports.

Anyone can write to me in English, Russian, or Ukrainian and I will understand, but Japanese I can only speak in it, I am still illiterate in Japanese.

Interview

Question: What have you published recently?
Fiction:  “Corr Syl the Warrior” (ISBN:  978-1484989890)
Nonfiction:  “Arizona Wildlife Notebook” (ISBN:  978-1480096509)
I also contribute articles on wildlife conservation for my website, local news media, government agencies, and others.  For instance, I just wrote a walking tour of a local stream habitat for schoolchildren.

Question: How, and when, did you decide to become a writer?
My middle and high school teachers encouraged me to write.  After high school, my education and subsequent careers in science and business required a great deal of writing.  I published several nonfiction science books and hundreds of articles in peer-reviewed science journals and scientific conference proceedings.  Learning to write fiction has been a stimulating challenge.

Question:  Why switch to fiction?
Much of my work in science focuses on desert vegetation.  Houses and roads are steadily obliterating the sites I study.  As the vegetation habitat is lost, the wildlife declines.  In my state, public agencies report that over half of native wildlife species are tending toward extinction.  Land use planners could avoid many of the human impacts on vegetation.  With a novel, I can reach a wider audience than the scientists who read my technical work.

Question: Where can we find your published writing?
Amazon now, and other bookstores in a few weeks.  Google Scholar has a more complete list of my published work, and my website “About” page has an exhausting list.

Question: What is a typical day like for you as a writer?
Feed the cats, make coffee, write, exercise, feed birds and ducks, do a little landscape maintenance, write some more, read.

Question: What are your favorite characters that you have created?  Tell us about them.
Corr Syl is a talented young warrior in a society dominated by much older individuals.  Wanting to avoid responsibility, but always willing to help, Corr agrees to investigate a murder and a minor invasion by a dangerous species.  Corr’s preference would be to go on a long trip with another warrior named Rhya Bright.  Instead, he becomes a key figure in a conflict and must see it through.  Corr likes to have fun with friends, likes to tell stories, and wants to be a comedian.  He has trouble with timing, however, and his jokes tend to elicit groans instead of laughs.

Rhya Bright, a warrior in training, and even younger than Corr Syl, is attracted to Corr.  She hides her interest because of pride and determination to form intimate relationships only with equals, not superiors.  Among her martial skills, Rhya excels in archery and battle strategy.  Rhya has a hidden compulsion to protect weaker individuals.  She becomes involved in the same conflict as Corr, and the two become very close as they work to solve a great problem.  Rhya is a good dancer and a great conversationalist.  I would be delighted to spend all my time within range of her cheery disposition.

I like several of the other characters.  I modeled Ralph Mäkinen after a close friend who had a good heart, a great sense of humor, and who was the All City Amateur Golden Gloves boxing champion.  Allysen Olykden is the older but beautiful, wise, and sympathetic friend we would all like to have.  I also like Aaron Li for beneath a dark calculating exterior, Li is a dedicated humanitarian.  And I could go on.

Question: do you find you “mentally edit” other writers’ works as you read them?  Does doing this help you or bother you?
I am interested in the methods used by other writers.  I am often impressed with the new ideas and techniques they use to compose scenes and handle interactions.  For me, looking behind the writing curtain adds an extra dimension that usually enriches the story.

Question: What music do you listen to, while writing?
I like many types of music, but I prefer silence when I write.

Question: What do you eat while writing?
I sip coffee, but take a break when I eat.

Five for Fun:
What is your favourite non-alcoholic drink?
Water.  Someone said that drinking lots of water would help me keep my weight down.  Seems to work.

What is your favourite cartoon character?
Judge Doom the antagonist in “Who Framed Roger Rabbit.”  Doom is motivated and witty.  But, what does he do for fun.  Perhaps he golfs, bowls, or reads?

What is your favourite movie of all time?
I liked the Blues Brothers, but have to pick “The Long Kiss Goodnight.”  After both lead characters are tortured, beaten and wounded in various ways, Gina Davis, staggering, dripping blood, eyes black, crawls into a car shakily steered by Samuel Jackson who is just as messed up.  As Jackson weaves away, he asks Davis if she is all right, and she manages, “Are you stupid?”  My kind of humour.

What do you like to do for fun or just to relax?
I like to chase animals around with my camera, but I also like to go dancing, drinking, and camping. I have read thousands of books.  I like movies and plays, and I am a fan of Red Dwarf, West Wing, and Dexter.
