Author Interview – Maia Sepp

What is your greatest strength as a writer? I think that writing dialogue is my biggest strength. It is the absolutely only part of writing that comes easily to me.

Can we expect any more books from you in the future? Yes, I’m currently working on my third book (my second needs another draft, but is almost completed). It’s a comedy about a self help group for people with migraine. I’m calling it The Migraine Mafia.

Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)? Yes, for The Sock Wars I made five or six trips to New York City, where the novel is set. I wanted to make sure I captured the city, which I love. I also wanted to catch a few Broadway shows and eat some awesome New York food. Yum!

What was the hardest part about writing this book? This book was a really long slog – it took me six years to finish. It was like a marathon. The hardest thing was to keep going, to not get discouraged. I was *very* happy when I finally finished.

What do you do to unwind and relax? I sail in the summer and ski in the winter. When people are depressed about winter storms, I’m heading for the slopes.

How did you come up with the title? I wanted to focus on the fact that the reality of living with your significant other is not as glamerous as you’d think when watching all those bridal shows. Sometimes there’s something tiny that you focus on (your partner leaves crumbs on the counter, or steals your socks, or whatever) instead of looking at the big picture. That’s what I was trying to capture in the title, The Sock Wars

Can you share a little of your current work with us? I’m working on a comedy about a self help group for people with migraine. I’m calling it The Migraine Mafia.

Who designed the cover? I picked the photograph – Lucky Bat Books made the magic happen with the rest of the design.

Can you tell us about your main character? My main character’s name is Lucy Tuttle. She’s a 29 year old Manhattanite who has a touch of OCD and likes to plan every little thing. Unfortunately, her world is turned upside down when her only family member – a disorganized hippie aunt – passes away suddenly on a trip to the UK, leaving her a brokendown house.
