Author/Artist Review

Author: Iris Floyd
Located in: Baton Rouge, LA
Submitted: April 04, 2013

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I was born Bonnie Iris McDonald in the small farming town of Wisner, LA and moved to Vidalia, LA at age 11. I have lived almost all of my life in Louisiana and currently live in Baton Rouge. I have a BS from LSU, have owned three businesses, and spent 20 years in community service in education, anti-crime, and race relations. Although I have been a writer all of my life, I did not pursue publishing until 2011. "Six-of-One" is my first published novel. It's sequel, "The Others" will be out in the summer of 2013, and I have a children's Christmas book due out in the fall of 2013. My publisher has accepted the second sequel and final book of the trilogy, "Phillip, The Stockbroker, without my having finished it. It will be out in 2014.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I lived four years in New Orleans in the 1970s and saw a potentially beautiful, barren, run down and deteriorating apartment complex near downtown New Orleans that intrigued me. I could imagine what a beautiful place it could be and wished I could save it. "Six-of-One" is centered around that complex.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope they will see that true friendship crosses many boundaries and is limited only be the friends within it. An unexpected gain has been that readers not from the south have seen southern women in a different and positive way that they also had not expected.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  I worked the entire story out in my head, and after two years, got away and wrote it in three days. I put it on a shelf and never tried to get it published. One evening, ten years after I wrote the story, I was feeling especially low and remembered how much I enjoyed writing it. I took it down and read it straight through, laughing out loud many times. When I finished it, I felt great, and I thought, "That is a really good book." The next day I told my daughter, Kelly, and she encouraged me to try and get it published. The first publisher (and my first choice) I sent it to called me three weeks later and wanted it. Now I am on the path to being a successful writer, something I have always wanted to be.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  My family and friends are my inspiration.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  "Six-of-One" won Honorable Mention in General Fiction, the largest category, in The Great Southeastern Book Festival Awards. The three winners are all well known, established authors and their winning entries won't even be released until May and June of 2013. I feel blessed.
