Voices of Fiction – Hobbies – Part One

Welcome back to Voices of Fiction.

As we enter the last part of the series, I’d like to thank all of the authors for participating and the readers for joining the discussions.

As authors, most of us enjoy a chaotic life filled with work, taking care of family, media promotions, and fitting in writing every chance we get. But, at some point, we must leave it all behind, relax and be alone. During this time is when you will find us enjoying the small stuff, the hobbies which take us to a different level in life and/or enrich life overall.

Over the next few weeks, we’ll be exploring the hobbies of the participating authors, getting to know them on this new level in life.

Please welcome this week’s group.

Reno Charlton works from home as a full-time copywriter, providing clients around the world with content for websites, magazines and other media. She’s also the author of three children’s fantasy novels. Under the pen name, Emily Ho, she’s published two short stories, winning the Curtis Brown Short Story Competition with ‘The Journey Home.’ - Amazon UK, Amazon, Goodreads

Catrina Barton is a licensed Kung Fu Instructor of the Black Dragon style and draws on that experience to make her fight scenes both realistic and action packed. She enjoys being surrounded by the stark beauty of mother nature, such as a moon lit starry sky, or a picnic by a peaceful waterfall cascading from the mountain side. - Amazon, Blog

Karina Kantas is the author of six titles, In Times of Violence, Lawless Justice, Road Rage and Huntress (which is published by MMP.) She's also the author of Stone Cold a YA supernatural thriller and Heads & Tales, a short story collection. Karina originates from the UK but now lives in Greece with her husband and two beautiful daughters. - Amazon, Barnes/Noble, Website

Cherie Reich is a writer, freelance editor, book blogger, and library assistant living in Virginia. - Website, Blog

Welcome Authors! It’s wonderful to have you back.

The Question: What hobby do you enjoy when not writing?

Reno Charlton - I am a bit of a couch potato and love movies and soap operas! I also love doing my bit for animal charities such as caring for homeless cats and kittens and raising money for the charities.

Catrina Barton - Belly Dancing, Kung Fu, and walking with my family. Hubby and I are both gamers too. It's how we first met. So I make time for rpgs like GuildWars and Star Craft II with hubby and the kids as well.

Karina Kantas – I have two talents. Writing and singing. If I didn't live in Greece I'd be singing professionally.

Cherie Reich - Reading, but I guess that's related to writing too. I do like to watch a lot of TV, though. I especially love crime/detective shows like CSI, Bones, Criminal Minds, and Psych.
Thank you all for joining us today.

Cherie, Thanks for stopping by. I figured hobbies was a good way to go out. A good look at the scene behind the author.

It is interesting to see what other authors do on their off-time. I think it's neat that Karina sings. I would have loved to do that professionally like my mother did.

Hi Cher, sorry to be so late responding. Great variety of answers so far. :)

Joylene, It is, which is why I saved it for last. I thought it would be a nice ending. Your mother's a professional singer? Anyone we know?

Kitty, it's never too late. :) More great answers coming throughout the coming weeks.
