Author Interview - Drica Pinotti
Author I draw inspiration from: I draw inspiration from my everyday experiences and stories told by my friends. I always try to see the good side of every situation and my comic view helps me a lot in these matters. My Crazy (Sick) Love was inspired in a close friend of mine who is hypochondriac.
Favorite place to read a book: My favorite place to read is my bed. I read every night before sleeping.
Book character I’d like to be stuck in an elevator with: I’d like to be stuck in an elevator with Don Tillman from the book The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion. I chose Don Tillman because I like shy men who blushes around women.
The moment I knew I wanted to become an author: I knew I wanted to become an author since I was 8 years old. I used to rewrite all of my books. I used to love changing the book ending. If the story had a happy ending I would modify it to a sad ending because I found it to be more exciting!
Hardback, paperback, ebook or audiobook: I love the aesthetic of hardcover books, but lately I’ve been listening to a lot of audiobooks since it’s more convenient.
The last book I read: The last book I’ve read was Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine by Gail Honeyman. I’m currently reading Nine Perfect Strangers by Lian Moriarty, and my next book in line is Daisy Jones & the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Pen & paper or computer: I love my writing, but when it comes to working on a book or project I prefer to do it on my computer.
Book character I think I’d be best friends with: Rececca Bloomwood (Becky) from the book Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella.
If I wasn’t an author, I’d be a: I’d be a food photographer. That’s my hobby and I love doing it.
Favorite decade in fashion history: My favorite decade is the 60’s. I find Jacqueline Kennedy to be one of the biggest influencers of all time. Her style was very elegant.
Place I’d most like to travel: I’ve traveled almost the entire world, but Greece and Ireland are on the top of my travel bucket list at the moment.
My signature drink: Mimosa! It’s a must have in any brunch.
Favorite artist: My favorite artist is Benedict Cumberbatch.
