Interview with Author Stormy Weber

Author Stormy Weber was born 1970 in Germany. Writing a children’s book has always been a dream of hers.

Growing up, she loved to make up songs or stories. According to her parents, Stormy’s imagination had no limits.

In 1980 her family moved to Africa where her dad was working for an iron ore mine. Her brother and Stormy attended a German foreign school. Africa with all its mystical stories and beautiful landscapes fed her young mind and imagination even more.

Her aunt taught her at a young age that there is so much more to life than what we are able to see. And her parents always supported her on her journey through life, even though Stormy’s decisions weren’t always the right ones. But to be able to fly you must stumble and fall a few times.

Believing in her dreams is what always kept her going. So, in 2012 she fulfilled her childhood dream, living on a farm in the USA, as Stormy’s childhood hero Laura Ingalls did.

It would take yet another 10 years to accomplish her second dream, writing a children’s book.

Michael My “Imaginary” Friend was put down in words.

Tell me more about your latest book

Michael My “Imaginary” Friend is a spiritual/Christian story about a little girl named Pumpkin and her friendship with a boy named Michael. I believe every parent can tell a story about the imaginary friend of their child or children while growing up. Danny, Danielle Parker and their little girl Pumpkin live in a little Farmhouse, just outside New Haven Indiana. Pumpkin loves to play and explore the outside acreage. Which is, where she meets on a beautiful fall day her new friend Michael for the first time. A wonderful friendship between the two children begins to grow, a friendship, which is different from the perspective of her parents as neither Danny nor Danielle are able to see Pumpkin’s new friend. Imaginary, is what they call him, magically is how Pumpkin sees him and wonderful and heaven send is what he really is…. For all the parents out there, may this book be a reminder, of the existence, of your inner child and the power of love, which is hidden deep inside your soul, and may it take you back to a place you have long forgotten.

What was the most challenging aspect of writing this book?

The most challenging part was to pack the story into words which are easy for children to understand. I listened a lot to my inner child and heart, and found that these two, as well as my grandchildren, were the best tools I had to turn it into a wonderful, beautiful story, which teaches both young and old.

What is your normal procedure to get your books published?

This is my first book, and to me it was and still is quite an adventure. I chose to self-publish my book, which is more work on the author’s side, but it holds a lot more freedom as well.

I learned with the process, and still adventure through this completely new world. It is a challenge, but challenges make life so much more fun. I believe if something is meant to be, Papa and our spiritual guides will help us through all of it.

Do you view writing as a kind of spiritual practice?

Yes, most definitely. I love to write and get lost in beautiful written books. I love to hold books in my hands. E- Books are a great invention, but to me personally, they always have to be paperback books. Books, which have a special meaning to me or touch my heart, do have to be in a hardback format, as hardback covered books are the best version of a book.

How many books have you written so far?

So far, I have completed one. Michael My “Imaginary” Friend.

I have started a biography about my life, but this one is still in the beginning stages. When the time is right it will be worked on some more.  And I believe in the saying, everything happens when the time is right.

What’s the best way to market your books?

This is all still very new to me, I promote my book on Facebook, where I share it through several groups, Christian Facebook pages etc. I hand out fliers at my job site, a high school. Friends who have shared it with their friends. I will have a book signing at a local bookstore planned, and ads in newspapers as well as an interview at a local radio station coming up.

How hard or easy is it to establish and maintain a career in writing?

I am not pushing myself to write a certain number of books in a certain time period. I have a full-time job which pays my bills. I would love to write more books, but as I mentioned earlier, everything happens when the time is right.

My next book is in the making and will be published once the story feels complete and perfect.

What is your advice for aspiring writers?

If you have this dream to write a book, never let go of that dream, visualize it and work on it little by little. Everything falls into place if it is meant to be.
