By Candace Cheatham, Editor, Kids Corner at Kindle Nation Daily

We announced last week that Walter Eckland’s CORIE UNIVERSE FEEDER is the Kids Corner Book of The Week – An eBook for the whole family to enjoy with 5.0 stars on Amazon. Today we are very excited to post an exclusive interview with author Walter Eckland!

 

KIDS CORNER’S EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW:

Kids Corner: Who will this book appeal to?

Walter Eckland: Adults who like reading to their children.  Kids who like funny, slightly sarcastic chapter books.

Kids Corner: Can you describe how you came up with the character Corie?

Walter Eckland: Actually based on my daughter!  She was never a big fan of either pickles or fish.  I was wondering how she would get out of eating them if offered and, well, burying them in the yard to grow into a tree was what I thought.  Character born.  Plot plotted.

Kids Corner: What is your favorite scene in CORIE UNIVERSE FEEDER?

Walter Eckland: The 3:17am attempted money stealing scene.  It’s a lot of dialog from a child’s point of view.  Quite a different viewpoint than an adult.

Walter Eckland: I think people say that because there is sarcasm that might be lost on the kids, but can be seen by the adults reading it.  The common message is not under-estimating someone.

Kids Corner: Can we expect more work from you?

Walter Eckland: Oh yeah, baby!.  There are two current books in the Corie series.  There are two more planned as well as an offshoot from one of the characters (Smelly Timmie).  Currently I am working on something quite different.  Dragons. Girl. Hero. It’s coming along well but needs more sarcasm.

Kids Corner: What books have you recently read?

Walter Eckland: Re-reading the first seven books in Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time series.  Would like to keep going and get to the books I have yet to read (eight – twelve).  Read the Hunger Games in a day or three.  Game of Thrones.  Billionaire’s Vinegar.

Kids Corner: What authors have influenced you?

Walter Eckland: I doubt any author would want to claim credit as an influencer of me!  I have a weird style.  Anyhoo, I really like old Sci/Fi peeps: Larry Niven, Jack Chalker, Tolkien.  I even like some new Sci/Fi types like Karen Miller, Trudi Canavan and Jim Butcher.

Kids Corner: Any advice for our young writers out there?

Walter Eckland: That’s easy.  Write.  Then write some more.  Then, post that, write.
