Get to know L. Rainey:
What made you start writing and decide to self-publish?
As a child I was extremely shy and I was never really good at expressing myself verbally so at the age of 7 I began keeping a journal. I would write about every and anything that came to my mind, whether it be how I’m feeling at the moment, what I was thinking or if I saw something that was interesting. I wrote my first novel in 2000 but I wasn’t knowledgeable about the process of publishing back then. As I as well as my writing matured I decided to finally go about trying to self-publish my work and I discovered createspace.com.
What messages I am sending through my writing?
I look to inspire and uplift readers who can relate to or know of someone who is going through certain situations that my characters are experiencing. I want to let them know that they are not alone, that there are other people out there who have experienced those issues as well.
What /who inspires me?
I’m inspired by everyday life. I take real life situations and turn them into mind & body stimulating stories to give people a chance to escape from their everyday lives and into someone else’s almost perfect world. I was inspired by Eric Jerome Dickey, his novel ‘sister, sister’ was the first adult book I had ever read and since then I fell in love with his work. His writing inspired me to not be afraid to write the way that I do as well as wanting to become a published author.
What plans do I have for the future as a writer?
At this moment I am just trying to build my fan base and show them that there are still writers out there who write out of their love for writing and not just money. I plan to have my own publishing company one day soon and I will be looking for writers who share the same passion for words as I do.
Would I consider playwright?
I’ve definitely considered playwright. I would love to one day turn my book(s) into plays and later on into movies.
