Author Interview: Sarah Richard

Today we have an author interview with children's books author Sarah Richard.

Jennifer: Where can we find out more about you and buy your books?
I love to infuse humor into stories.  To get a taste, I put everything together at  There are free articles, comics, and reviews available at the website as well as information to buy the ebooks.  The direct link, however, for the children's ebooks is  The educational workbooks are at

Jennifer: Tell us about your book.
  The ebooks through Disk Us Publishing are mainly fiction.  A lot of the stories focus on the alphabet or counting.  My goal as a teacher is to make the class laugh at least once a day.  I hope the Disk Us stories do the same by bringing laughter to readers.  The ebooks through Everything Homeschooling are designed to make learning engaging.  We are currently working on a reading comprehension workbook.  We plan to include stories such as "How to Win a College Scholarship" and "Recovering from Hurricane Katrina."

Jennifer: What is your greatest writing challenge?
Technical writing is challenging.  There are so many rules, and technical writers must have an eye for detail.

Jennifer: What other projects do you have coming up?
The next story is titled The Vision.  It is a young adult novel for ages 12 and up.  The story is about a secret admirer.

An innocent crush spirals out of control as witty love letters and gifts take on a life of its own.  While nothing is forgotten, an unusual romance forms. 

Jennifer: What was the hardest part: writing the book, getting it published, or marketing it? Why?
Marketing.  It has been a blessing to have author interviews and reviews to help get the word out.  I also link up the website with articles and blogs.  To date, I have sold over 100 ebooks.   

Jennifer: Tell us a little about your non-writing life. Family? Pets? Hobbies?
I have 10-year-old twins and their 11-year-od sister, but the dog is 10 times more trouble than the three of them combined...

Jennifer: If you could choose your last meal, what would it be?
Tamales.  Tomorrow it will be Dorito tacos.  The next day - Shoney's fudge cake.  Spinach dip and pretzels are good...ah, just give it all to me.  (And no, I'm not expecting, but a fried pickle and ice cream sounds good too... put that on the side with a little sparking grape juice.)
Thank you to Sarah Richard for stopping by! Be sure to check out her books.
