Lisa Orchard Interview!

I got the chance to interview Lisa Orchard, author of Super spies and the Cat Lady Killer!! Check it out, below! 


1)      How old are you? 
 Oh….the tough question right off the bat! J I’m 48. J

2)      What is the “Super Spies and the Cat Lady Killer about”?
  It’s about three friends who stumble upon the dead body of a reclusive neighborhood woman, and then are caught at the crime scene by the police. The lead detective believes they killed “the Cat Lady,” so the girls form their own detective squad to clear their names.

3)      Who is your role model? 
 Oh, that’s a tough one.  I would have to say Dr. Dyer. I like the message that he delivers to people.

4)  What inspires you to write?
 I was inspired at a very young age to write. When I was in 5th grade I loved the “Bobbsey Twins” and the “Nancy Drew” series. I knew I wanted to be a writer of mysteries after I read those books. Now, what inspires me are my two boys. J

5)  Who do you like to write for the most? (Who is your audience most of the time?)
 I would have to say young girls between the ages of 12 and 18. Although, I’ve had many adults buy my book and they have really enjoyed it. I like to write for this age group, because I enjoyed reading in my teen years so much, and I’d like to bring that same sense of anticipation, adventure, and happiness to others in that age group.

6)      What is your favorite television show?
 You’re going to laugh, but I’m going to have to say “The Killing” on AMC. It’s a murder mystery and it is a great show. J I really like real life drama.

7)      Do you prefer Harry Potter, Twilight, or the Hunger Games? (books not movies)
  I haven’t read the Harry Potter books or Twilight. I’m not really interested in vampires, and the Harry Potter series… I’ve watched the movies with my kids so there was no need to read the books. However, I have read the first Hunger Games book and I loved it! It was a great story.

8)      What is your favorite breakfast food?
 I would have to say an Egg Sandwich. My husband makes them most Saturday mornings and they are scrumptious! J It’s an English muffin with egg, ham, and cheese.

9)      What is your all time favorite book?
 Without a doubt, it would be “To Kill a Mockingbird”. I loved that story and still do!

10)  Thank you! Is there anything else you’d like to say?
 I’d like to thank everyone who has purchased my book. I’ve received tremendous feedback on it and some awesome reviews. Everyone’s kind words are greatly appreciated. J I’ve also just sent the sequel to my publisher and my beta readers liked the second one better! J  So, stay tuned there’s more to come from the Super Spies! J

  10. to Kill a Mockingbird is also one of my all-time favorite novels. I've read it completely at least twice ... and it's extremely rare for me to re-read a novel.
    Enjoyed the interview.
