Chatting with Sydney Arrison, Author of My Heat In Seoul
Sydney Arrison began writing
at a very early age. While a freshman in college, her English professor
encouraged her to pursue writing as a career. She was a reporter for the
independent press and is currently working on her third novel. Sydney resides in New York with her husband and two children.
writer, what has been your biggest challenge, trials or tribulations that you
have overcome?Often times it's very difficult to visit the fictional world,
because real life is knocking on the door. While working on my latest book
"My Heart In Seoul," my best friend was gravely ill. She and I knew
she didn't have that much time left. Although my heart was broken and my spirit
shattered, I knew if I stopped working on the book I wouldn't have finished it.
Being able to visit Jasmine's and Wen's world is what kept me afloat. I
couldn't wait to find out where the story was going next. Writing was
definitely a welcome escape from reality. I think some of us do our best
writing when we are "going through something."
you please give us a blur about your present or upcoming book?The
book is about news anchor Jasmine Sinclair. She lives in NY, and has a very
public break up with her famous fiancée. Instead of reporting the news, Jasmine
has the tables turned on her and she has now become the news. Fed up with the
prying eyes of the paparazzi, she decides to accompany her father, Senator John
Avery Sinclair on his trip to Seoul.
Intoxicated by the night life in Seoul, Jasmine dares to approach a mysterious and handsome
stranger. The encounter leads to an unforgettable, passion filled weekend, but
upon returning to New York Jasmine soon realizes; that nothing will quell her
yearning to be with the man she loves. Will distance, ambitions and family-ties
keep them apart or will they find each other again?
you planning to write any more books in the near future?Right
now I’m working on a young adult mystery novel. The story takes place in the
south in the 1950’s.
advice would you give someone who is thinking about writing a book?I
would tell them not to write for fame or fortune. Write because you have a
story to tell, a story to share. I would also tell them to be patient.
can our readers get in touch with you?I have a contact form
on my blog. Sydneyarrison.blogspot.com. Readers are more than welcome to email
Thank you for allowing us to dialogue with you.
Do you have any words of wisdom for future authors?I
would tell them to write from the heart, to not write based on trends.
