MEET THE AUTHOR: SELF-HELP AUTHOR CRISTINA G.


Cristina G. was born in Romania during one of the harshest communist regimes that ever existed.

The tenth child of a farmer’s family, she has six sisters and used to have four brothers, now only two.

Aged eight, she read Les Misérables by Victor Hugo and fell irremediably in love with books. Since then she kept dreaming of writing for many years, and she wrote a lot, but never thought of publishing.

In 2012, after living in Italy for ten years, Cristina became a blogger.

In June of 2014, with the help of a British friend, she moved to the UK. Here, although her expectations were not great, Cristina fulfilled the dream she never dared to dream before.

Cristina G. is now a registered author and dedicates her life to writing focusing on human behaviour, emotions and feelings.

Her latest book is the self-help/nonfiction, It’s Never Game Over.

What first inspired you to write or who inspired you?

Victor Hugo inspired me to write, after reading Les Misérables.

At what age did you know you wanted to be a writer?

As soon as I learned to read and write, I knew I wanted to be a writer. I was quite old actually, aged 8.

Do you take notes when reading or watching a movie?

I take notes in my head. Always.

Has writing always been a passion for you or did you discover it years later?

Since I can remember.

Do you have a day job?  What do you do?

Yes, I do. I am a call analyst (Italian, Romanian & English) and I work for 9.5 hours a day for three days a week.

Can you name three writing tips to pass on to aspiring authors?

1.      If you feel like this is what you want to do, don’t ever listen to those who tell you that your dream is silly.
2.      When you lack motivation or feel hopeless, watch stories of sudden success. My recommendation would be X Factor or World’s Got Talent on YouTube.
3.      When I am stuck with a story, I move to another one.

For more tips, check out my latest self-help publication, Author for Life or for a Living? Manifesto for Real Writers.

Do you let unimportant things get in the way of your writing?

Never!

What hours do you write best?

I have no preference.

How often do you write?
I write for four days a week. Since I get up until I get to bed.

Are you an avid reader?

Absolutely. Before starting to write, for more than 20 years, I read at least 5 books a week. Then life happened, and this number was considerably reduced.

What are you reading now?

I mainly read my books because they need a lot of grammatical corrections!
But I also read blog posts and self-help books.

What are you currently working on?

I work on many different books. I will mention only the Coming Soon ones.
·        One is a beautiful dystopian story, Nobody Cries.
·        The other one is a funny self-help publication for solo people, Single or… Scotch? How to be Happy Alone.
·        The third one is a very insightful non-fiction book for women who are deprived of their primordial right: Procreation, Childless: How to Cope with Endometriosis & Vulvodynia.
