Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Victoria Vorel.
I welcome the debutant
“A Click That Changed My Life”
A True Story.
She was on her 50’s, some years after her divorce; totally disappointed on life. She had given the best of herself, now she just wants peace, no other expectations. Slowly the idea that somewhere should be a good man who was feeling as lonely as her, made Victoria takes the risk on internet dating. The rest is pure magic.
Hi Victoria, thank you for agreeing to this interview and welcome to the segment
‘A living series talk.’
Tell us a little about yourself?
It’s pleasure to be here Inderjit.
Well about me:
I was born in Chile, 1952, in a very traditional family, my grandparents were Germans, so when I was a little girl, I already knew to make nice crochet and embroidery. Every night my mother used to read for my brother and me; same as her mother did for her 9 kids. My house was always full of books, still is. I studied chemistry at the university and got married. But marriage didn’t worked and after a tough decision got myself separated. And my duties of a responsible mother were almost complete and I was 50, I decided to find true love. And thus I met a Swiss man who changed my life forever.
Which writers inspire you?
Paulo Coelho, he made me see that beyond the reality, there is a magic world waiting to be explored and it is much more powerful than we can imagine.
Interesting, Paulo Coelho is my favourite too!
So what have you written?
I have written lots of poems, few short stories, but never published them. My first published book is “A Click That Changed My Life”, also written in Spanish
“Un Click Que Cambió Mi Vida”.
It is a true story that I wanted to share, and intend to give hope to those people who feel lonely after a certain age and think that it is too late to find true love.
This book is my true story
and I want to share with my readers the experiences of my life that how something that happened unexpectedly changed my life giving it a meaningful purpose.
Wow! That’s a wonderful thought.
Yes, hope makes us see when we are confused to walk.
Please do share with our readers your thoughts about:
What is the hardest thing about writing? How long on average does it take you to write a book?
It is hard to be on both sides. Tell your story and also consider the effect it will have on the reader. Most of the time you are dealing with emotions, most importantly you have to be genuine.
I wrote short stories that took me less than a week to finish. I wrote this book in three months, nonetheless, editing is something different, it could take some more time. My book in English was just partially edited, because the editor wanted to keep the “Latino” touch.
I learned English at school, I have never lived in a country where English is the native language.
For your own reading, do you prefer ebooks or traditional paper/hard back books?
I prefer traditional paper books. There is nothing better than the smell of the pages of a book, maybe chocolate. Anyway, I have a kindle and I am surrendering to technology.
That’s’s a great thought.
So after the debut book ‘A click that changed my life’,
What are your future projects?
I live in the South of Chile, where vegetation is beautiful, nice landscapes. I would like to travel further south to Patagonia and write about people who live at the end of the world.
How do you relax? Any special destress technique as writing involves a lot of sitting.
I like baking and gardening. I grow my own vegetables. My passion is reading, so I try to combine it with all the others.
Awesome! Sounds great.
What advice would you give to aspiring writers?
Please write about something that you would love to read. Do it with passion and never give up.
What a great advice I do agree, and now please kindly let our readers know how can they discover more about you and you work?
