Author Interview with Tearra Rhodes


I am so excited to interview Tearra Rhodes author of He Said His Name Was Micah.


How long have you been writing?

Tearra:  I have been writing ever since I was in elementary school. I loved to pore over magazines and make up stories and short plays about people I found interesting in them. I still have some of the stories and magazine cut outs.


Who are your favorite authors?

 Tearra: I read a little bit of everything. I really enjoy Walter Dean Myers, Maya Angelou,
Karen Kingsbury, Rachel Hauck, and Jane Austen. They all tell such beautiful stories in their own way. They each have a distinctive voice.


What’s your writing schedule like?

Tearra: Well, I work in the insurance industry as a licensed insurance agent. I work Monday through Thursday 11:15-10pm, so my writing schedule is pretty haphazard. I write mainly in the very early mornings or on the weekends. Sometimes I carve out a whole Friday, Saturday, or after church on Sunday and go to Panera to write. I love the quiet energy there. I need to find a better routine, but I can only write when the proverbial juices are flowing. And they don’t flow on a schedule.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to share.
