Once upon a time a girl named Val was late for her very important blind date.
After not meeting up with her blind date at a local bistro, Val finds herself dressed up as Alice and attending the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party in the woods with three sexy guys. Seeking an adventure, Val dives into the world of fantasy and does what anyone in her situation would do: a foursome!
I’m sure you’re as excited as I am to be chatting to Ivy Bateman on our blog today… Ivy has a wicked sense of humour and it’s always a riot having her with us…. today we’re having some sort of evil chocolate, coffee drink, but it has some serious booze in it which makes me really happy!!
So Ivy let’s start chatting before I lose the will to do anything more than enjoy bon-bons and this witches brew you’ve concocted! Did you always dream of being a writer?
Actually, I originally intended to pursue a life on the stage.
Really? Was that just something you dreamed of as a kid?
Well, yes, but I did more than dream about it. When I was just nine, I began my journey for a life on the stage. I tried a number of things, took classes and learned my lessons really well. However, in the end it wasn’t for me.
So was that hard for you?
I made a decision to live life off the stage and for a while there it seemed like that was the end of my creative journey.
What changed that for you? I gather all was not lost since we’re here talking to you now…
You’re right, *grin*, while I was at college I met the love of my life and his support and strength was a big motivator towards me seeing that I had talent waiting around many corners.
You gotta love a loving man! They’re often the strength that we didn’t expect.
I know, right? He’s a keeper!
So do you ever indulge your acting bug these days?
Oh sure, when the stage beckons, I answers its call.
Does being a writer detract from that?
Actually, I find that my passion for writing has enhanced many of my theatre dreams.
In what way?
Well, nowadays, as well as the occasional book, I now occasionally write a play *grin*
That’s really awesome actually. Must make dialogue a bit of a no-brainer for you then huh?
Well, it doesn’t hurt!
And how does that love of your life feel about it all?
He loves it. He’s always game to read everything I write and although he may not always be my muse, he is always my biggest fan.
That’s such an important role to have and I think it’s important that we all have that one person who will cheer us on! How many books have we published now?
I’ll Call You Alice is my fifth release with Breathless Press and the best part is that it’s also going to be part of the Wonderland Tales hardcover. PRINT!!
It IS rather exciting all round! 5 books is a fantastic achievement! I love your work and I confess that I’m looking forward to bigger and better things from you! Tell us where we can find you online?
