What do you like to do when you're not writing?
Do you Google yourself? Yes, I’ve done this. It’s comforting to find there have been other women who have been named Isabelle Hardesty and they lived over a hundred years ago. I love that more than seeing information about me.
What is your favorite childhood book? I loved Wuthering Heights in middle school. I loved Charlotte’s Web in elementary school.
What is the most difficult part of your artistic process?
How long on average does it take you to write a book?
Do you believe in writer's block? Yes and no. I know it's real, but I also know that it can be overcome with hard work.
Do you have any rituals before writing? I have these two unicorn figurines that I place near my laptop. I may light a candle and there is usually a hot cup of tea involved in the process. While writing, I listen to music that fits my scene.
What is your biggest fear?
