Cafe Three-Zero Take 7 Author Interview – with L.C. Bullivant

Each week we are featuring a couple of our now published authors, and inviting them to answer 7 questions about their writing and inspirations. They have all contributed to our first eBook, Tales From The Cafe: Vol 1, details of which are posted on our home page. Our latest interview features L.C. Bullivant.  Be sure to check out  her author page for more information…

Q1  Give us some background on yourself?

It is an unremarkable story containing deaths, births, loves, lusts, tears and laughter.

Q2  What was the basis for your story in Tales from the Cafe: Vol 1?

A radio quote that became the mans mission in the story. The rest was built up around the notion of ‘corruption’.

Q3  Why did you want to become an author?

It isn’t so much about ‘becoming an author’, as trying to get better at something that is a fundamental part of me and my way of understanding the world.

Q4  Any advice for fledgling authors?

Look.

Q5  What authors do you like and admire?

I think that Murakami is one of the most enjoyable living authors, but Camus, De Beauvoir and Berger make me want to work hard. Their grasp of language and thoughts about life and consciousness are truly inspiring. If I aim that high perhaps I will reach somewhere around mediocrity

Q6  What do you do when you’re not writing fiction?

Think about it. Read it. Walk dogs.

Q7  What will you do if you become famous?

Much the same as I do now but with more time to write.
