Member Spotlight on Lavada Martin!

by | May 21, 2021

Everyone, welcome Lavada Martin to Hearts Through History. Lea, our intrepid interviewer, asked some questions and Lavada answered!

Do you write full time or part time?

I write as much as my schedule allows. Never enough, but I am improving on being more consistent.

What’s the hardest part of writing?

Hardest part of writing is the balance between showing and telling.

What’s your favorite historical movie?

The Crossing with Jeff Daniels as George Washington.

Who’s your favorite historical figure?

Abraham Lincoln.

When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?

In my early twenties I became addicted to Harlequins. That’s when the desire to create my own stories began.

Give us a brief rundown of your process. Are you a plotter, pantser or somewhere in the middle?

More plotter than panster. I do detailed character studies and have several plot point ideas before beginning, but once I begin, anything can change.

Can you tell us a little bit about your journey to publication?

A few years ago I published a handful of contemporary short stories. These days I am concentrating on my midwest set historicals with a novella in early 1900’s on sub and a 1889 novel in the works.
