Superheros are the talk of the day in today’s interview with Eran Gadot. Eran, thanks for joining me. Let’s get straight down to business, where did the spark of ‘Supernatural Hero’ start?
My imaginary friend.
Now that’s not an answer that I’ve heard before. How did you imaginary friend help?
It helped as I did lot of research about imaginary friends and ghosts.
Those are some interesting research topics! Did you find that your characters came from this research, or were they borne from something else?
They came from my childhood & my kids.
And upon merging the kids, childhood and ghosts, what did you feel was the important thing that you wanted your book to say?
Don’t try to be someone else be yourself! Believe in yourself is the only way to success.
Redirecting our focus to your success, have you started on any new writing projects?
Right now I’m working on the new supernatural hero and the werewolf (5) in the series.
And what has kept you coming back to write the fifth adventure in this series?
I can’t remember a time when I didn’t write. I write about everything. As far as I’m concerned what isn’t written down simply isn’t important. Writing is in my blood. The words inside me are constantly trying to burst out, however much I may try to focus on other things. My greatest dream was always to write a book for children, whose honesty and innocence constantly overwhelm me. It’s thanks to children that my own inner child is sustained and never ceases to make his presence felt. When my son started sixth grade and embarked on the journey known as adolescence my urge to write a book for children became impossible to ignore. His experiences granted me inspiration as well as fantastic ideas for my book. As I began to write, the reactions of my son and his friends totally amazed me and I understood that I was on the right path. I completed my book, which became the first in a series of six. The responses from my readers renew my energy daily and strengthen my deep motivation to continue to write. For me, writing is not a hobby but a vocation. I simply have to write. And I still feel like a boy, with a tremendous desire to realize my dreams, break new ground and transform the impossible into the possible.”
And when the transformation from the impossible to possible begins on paper, can you see how each tale will end?
I know the story but it always surprises me. I can’t stop writing until the end of the book!
