Abra Ebner Interview!

A new interview that we have today is from Abra Ebner, author of KNIGHT ANGELS and the FEATHER series!

1. When did you realize you wanted to be a writer?

When I was young I always loved to write in journals. I have millions now, but it never dawned on me to write until after college. One day I started a story, and before I knew it I had seven books all together. It was sudden, and weird, but I love it!

2. What are you favorite things to do besides writing?

I like to golf the most, at least right now. My concentration changes with the seasons. Snowboarding, wakeboarding, horseback riding, drawing, and cooking are my other obsessions. I have to keep busy, though writing keeps me pretty busy ATM.

3. Publishing is very stressful and hard, how was your experience?

Stressful and hard! It's a long, long road, but if you can stick to it, and not let the bad times get you down (or the bad reviews) then eventually you'll succeed. It's scary to put yourself out there in a way that is so personal. The best thing you can do is take each review in stride and try to make something of it. There's always room for improvement, no matter how good you are.

4. If you could time travel, which time period would you go to?

I would go to the twenties in France. I love to treat each day with respect, get fresh groceries, and never plan ahead (unless I absolutely have to). I think about it all the time, and I wish time travel were something we could really do... just as long as it doesn't give me cancer (ha ha).

5. Are you planning of writing more after the FEATHER series? What should we expect?

I have written Knight Angels since FEATHER, and it's much different. It's edgy and contemporary, but I'm really excited about the possibilities. So far the second book in that series is my favorite, but it's not out yet. This Fall. I think everyone who liked FEATHER, will especially like the second book of Knight Angels.

Thanks for the great interview Abra!



  1. DUDE, she shares a name with a Pokemon! I might have to read her books just for that. ;)
