Author Interview – Ava Zavora @avazavora

What dreams have been realized as a result of your writing?

The fact that my stories and my novels are no longer entombed in a hard drive, but are alive and being read by people all over the world, is a childhood dream come true.

What books did you love growing up?

The books which formed me are Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery, Beauty by Robin McKinley, The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lioness Rampant series by Tamora Pierce, among others. As a young teen, I devoured an unholy amount of Barbara Cartland novels because they were chaste enough to satisfy my mother.

Who is your favorite author?

Beauty by Robin McKinley has inspired me in so many ways. It’s responsible for my lifelong love of fairy tales, especially Beauty and the Beast. McKinley’s exquisite prose captivated me when I was a child and it inspires me as a writer today.

What genre of books do you adore?

I tend to devour books that are outside of the genres in which I write, which means narrative nonfiction, literary, young adult/middle grade, women’s fiction, science books, and travel guides.

What do you hope your obituary will say about you?

She lived a life as exciting as a plot from one of her books.
