Name: Eva-Joy “Eva” Ruth Schönhaar.
Nicknames: Well, pretty much everyone online calls me ‘Eva’. And my dad had a nickname for me, but I don’t feel like sharing it here for various reasons.
Birthday: September 3rd! Less than a month until I turn twenty!!! I share my birthday with a lot of people (duh), but my three favorites are Alan Ladd, Mort Walker (creator of ‘Beetle Bailey’, one of my favorite comic strips), and Garrett Hedlund. Also, WWII began on my birthday (several decades ago, obviously). I don’t know if that’s cool or not.
Hair color and length: My hair is brunette and a little shorter than chin-length.
Eye Color: Blue.
Braces/Piercings/tattoos: I did have braces once upon a time, but now I just have two tiny wire retainers behind my top and bottom teeth. I’d like to get my ears pierced. And I don’t have any tattoos.
Righty or lefty: Righty.
Ethnicity: Caucasian. British, German, and American roots.
Novel Written: Well, I wrote several novellas (probably more like long short stories, tbh) but I believe the first novel-length work I finished was a dystopian novel (first in a trilogy, of course).
Novel Completed: That dystopian thing and as to when it was completed, I’m not entirely sure. I believe it was some time in 2012 or 2013.
Award for Writing: I won a short story contest at the local library several years ago. It wasn’t an award exactly, but it’s something anyway.
Publication: I have nothing to say about this at the present time. (Though the aforementioned short story was published on the library website.)
Conference: No. 😦
Query/Pitch: *shrugs* I won’t think about that now…I’ll think about that tomorrow. After all, tomorrow is another day! *music swells*
Novel (that you wrote): The one I’m currently working on – The Resistance of Lili Verre – has my heart, obviously. I’m also partial to my next NaNoWriMo project, a Christian dystopian based on the life of the Apostle Paul. But I think my favorite novel I’ve written so far is The Bounty Hunter. It’s a western. Very first draft, but the characters are the literal best.
Genre: Westerns! I’m also very partial to sci-fi and most historicals.
Author: Soooooo many. Jane Austen, Harper Lee, Nadine Brandes, Suzanne Collins, Marissa Meyer, Baroness Orczy, Louis L’Amour, Rachel Kovaciny, Markus Zusak…and on and on and on.
Writing Music: Movie soundtracks! My Spotify playlist for The Resistance of Lili Verre includes music from ‘The Book Thief’, ‘Hugo’, ‘Ratatouille’, and ‘Cinderella’ (2015). Or sometimes I’ll just go and pull up someone else’s random playlist and write to that. Love.
Time to write: That’s something I’ve been working out in my head, as I want to take my writing a lot more seriously and devote more time to it. Right now, I mainly write between eleven and twelve in the morning, scattered throughout the afternoon, and sometimes in the evening. I need to get a firm schedule though.
Writing snack/drink: Coffee. That’s pretty much it. I don’t like eating as I write, because it tends to get my keyboard sticky or crumby.
Movie: ‘The Magnificent Seven’ (original). And tons of others.
Writing Memory: I remember having a lot of fun with a western story about a bank examiner that I wrote a few years ago. Lots of coffee and early mornings and Jerry Goldsmith music.
Childhood Book: Again, there’s many. Little Men would be up there, along with A Little Princess.
Reading: Gone With the Wind and The Wendy.
Writing: This blog post, my Rogue One WWII AU, and The Resistance of Lili Verre.
Listening to: My little brothers talking.
Watching: My Gmail inbox.
Learning: Nothing much at the moment.
Want to be published: Before I’m twenty-five.
Indie or traditional: Traditional is my goal right now.
Wildest goal: To have as loyal and devoted a fan-base as Nadine Brandes does.
Like Kinsey, I’m going to leave this tag open for whoever wants to do it. 🙂
