I'm reading The Tapestry Series and I snagged an interview with the author Natalie Alder

August 16, 2017

Hi everyone,

 

I’m happy to introduce you to romance author Natalie Alder. We met in July at the New England Author’s Expo in Danversport, Massachusetts. Natalie’s friendliness won me over, and I envied the martinis she held. Also, I was intrigued by her appealing book covers. I eyed the shirtless cowboy with interest. I’m currently reading book one in The Tapestry Series: Crewel Work.  I’ll be posting my review soon.

 

Here’s more from Natalie:

 

Hi, my name is Natalie Alder. I am a sassy 50-something year old. I live in a quiet farming town in New England with my husband of seventeen years and our three rescued cats. After college, I facilitated improvement in the physical abilities of children and the elderly then took the opportunity to enjoy my creative side. I love to sew, knit, write...sing and drink martinis (not necessarily at the same time). . .

Now, I write stories about romance, some naughtier than others. They center on learning about the characters backgrounds, personalities and life circumstances that mold them into who they are and how they love.

 

I’ve written The Tapestry Series which tells the story of the Becker family, owners of a race horse farm in the fictional town of Carnegie, South Carolina. Each book is about a different member of the family whose stories weave together throughout the series to tell the family’s whole story much like a tapestry.

 

Natalie's answers to my interview questions:

 

Q: Could you tell me a little about your books?

 

I’ve written The Tapestry Series which tells the story of the Becker family, owners of a race horse farm in the fictional town of Carnegie, South Carolina. Each book is about a different member of the family whose stories weave together throughout the series to tell the family’s whole story much like a tapestry.

 

Q: What draws you to this genre?

 

I enjoy a romantic story, especially one about a forbidden love. I also think cowboys are rather sexy.

 

Q: How do you come up with ideas for your stories?

 

I literally just sit down and start to write. I don't usually know all that will happen in the book before I write it.

 

Q: Who is your favorite, and least favorite, character in the book?

 

I really like the character, Tanner Ford. He is the farm's foreman. He's funny and a very genuine person.

 

Q: What was the best thing anyone has ever said about your books, and which one was it about?


"When it comes to Natalie´s writing style there is something you rarely see in other books. Often it´s the case that there is a big Bang going on, lots of things happening, lots of story-lines that in reality could never exist. Natalie is one of these authors that doesn´t need all of this. Because the way she touches her readers emotionally(not just with the story-line, but also with her unique characters) is something which I would call a gift." * Review by Lauren of Jeri's Attic re: Trouble Looming, Book 2 in The Tapestry Series

 

Q: Do you have any rituals or habits that help you write?

 

I like to write in a quiet environment. I don't play music and can't write with people around to break my concentration.

 

Q: Other than your own book, what is your favorite novel?

 

A Room with a View by E.M. Forster

 

Q: And finally, if you could offer an aspiring author advice, what would you tell them?

 

Just write.

 

Thank you, Natalie for those heartfelt answers. I can understand building family around your characters as I also like to write in that way. I feel it makes for stronger characters.
