One on One with Bestselling Author Cheryl Ashford Daniels of The Dating Game

Introduce yourself.

My name is Cheryl Ashford Daniels. I'm married, a mother of four and grandmother of six. I'm a second time published author. My first novel is called White Tulips – The Flower of 
Forgiveness. My second one is my short story called A Beautiful Letter in the Amazon bestseller, The Dating Game.

How would you describe the road to publication?
Long and hard but oh so rewarding!

What inspired your short story in The Dating Game? I'm never inspired to write books. Weird as it sounds, my books come to me in my dreams. 

Your best advice on dating in the 21st century. Stay true to yourself, and never settle.

 In five words describe your dating experience.

I've happily married for such a long time, this is a hard question. My dating experience when I had one was, exasperating, time-consuming and boring at times. 

 As an author, do you believe in happily ever after? Absolutely! I write romance because I believe so much in a happily ever after.

How did you begin writing? Did you intend to become an author, or do you have a specific reason for writing your book(s)? I have always read. But one day I woke up, picked up a pen and paper then wrote my first book. 

Do you have a special time to write or how is your day structured? My best time for writing is in the evening.

 Favorite quote that defines who you are as a writer.Anyone who says they have never traveled has never read a book.

 What projects are you currently working on?

I've just completed a full novel to my short story, A Beautiful Letter and I am also working on a Romance Fantasy novel.

 What was the best piece of “writing advice” that you’ve ever been given? To read, read, read and write, write, write.

 Favorite writer and book that has mostly influenced your life.

Terry Pratchett was my favorite write. The book that I love the most is To Kill a Mockingbird.

 Just for fun: Night owl or early bird? Coffee or tea? E-books or paperbacks? Crowded room or peace and quiet to write? 

I'm definitely a night owl. I love a great cup of tea. I love my Kindle, but can never take the place of the feel of a book. And I definitely need quiet time to write.
