About the Author
Daniela is a pretty laid back person. Yet, her writing always stems from some visceral place of dormant terror. Her blog, Rambling and Wandering, catalogs these fears. Sometimes in cutely told horror stories and sometimes in just plain sarcasm and pessimism. Pessimism has to go somewhere. Daniela has a love for science, so she sends her pessimism to the far reaches of other galaxies. She paints portraits of real family life in the stories of strange aliens and contemplates our humanity from the safe confines of a fantasy world. Beyond the sick humor of gardeners squashed by astroids and aliens being decapitated, her deep centered spirituality always wins that inner battle. Is there some other meaning? Some deeper message? Daniela Parker's work will challenge your concept of reality.
This novel is a possible reality for Americans which becomes more plausible every day. We are doing very little to stop climate change and are heading towards a system of government that has no check and balance for our elected officials. We need to act now or else suffer the consequences. That is what makes this book so appealing to read. The reader can read it and think to themselves, "That could be us, but we have the ability to make a difference, too.”
- What kind of research do you do, and how long do you spend researching before beginning a book? I normally do my research as I write after I have my initial idea, which can take painstakingly long. Depending on what the book or story is about, I can literally write a paragraph a day!
- Do you view writing as a kind of spiritual practice? I think writing is linked to our deepest thoughts and feelings. I address all of my apprehensions and questions about life in my writing. As a spiritual person, I believe a measure of a person's spirituality is found in their work. It may not be apparent at first, but our spirituality will dictate how our characters grow and solves problems at the very least. It will also dictate how we deal with sex, violence, and the main theme in our work.
- How do you select the names of your characters? Sometimes I choose names of people I have admired to give them a little cameo in the book, but more often I make up random names to be funny and make fun of science fiction literature.
- What was your hardest scene to write? I struggle with violence in my stories and yet violence is inevitable in some of my characters lives. I try to make the scenes more emotional and spiritual, so the violence isn't glorified. But the hard truth is some characters cuss, have sex, and murder. If we limit this just because we are religious, we limit the truth of life.
- What is the most difficult part of your artistic process? The most difficult part of my artistic process is being confident putting it out there. I fear the backlash from discussing difficult topics. I fear that no one will read my work. At the same time, I have to be the one in the end to push myself through social media and other marketing. So, it takes a lot of courage on my part.
- Does your family support your career as a writer? I am blessed to have a family who supports me. I hope one day to make them proud. I want to be able to thank them for helping me and say to my children, see that dreams really do come true!
