Just as summer torpor threatened to overtake me, someone on social media asked me if I might be interested in a success story interview. That someone is Michael Dinich, founder of Your Money Geek. His website offers a unique and highly creative approach to finance, spiked with geek culture and other current topics of interest. I recommend you check out all his articles!
I was honored to be asked. At first I had one of those “Imposter Syndrome” moments, like “How can I be considered a success story?” But then I thought, hey, wait a minute! I came a long way from that first unpublished novel written in my youth to the release of my first published novel in May 2018, Heliopause: The Questrison Saga: Book One! And as of now, I have had three different book signings. Signed copies of my book are at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, too! If someone had told me a year ago–or heck, even this spring!–that I would have these opportunities, I would have made a raspberry sound of disbelief. Yet here I am. In awe of what’s happened so far, and delighted by the response of the book and the people I’ve met. So, YES! That’s a success story!
Mr. Dinich kindly sent me many great questions via email. This process gave me the flexibility and time to give him and everyone a reasoned response.
I hope you enjoy reading this first interview of me by Michael Dinich. And so, without further ado, here it is, Meet J. Dianne Dotson, Author of the Novel Heliopause! Thank you so much, Mr. Dinich, for this lovely moment and peek into my life and work.
