Summer Countdown Blitz - Day 8: 'See Me For Me' by Teya Peck #giveaway most recent accomplishment started in the summer of 2015. Making her dad’s dream come true with publishing his works as well, as an emotional accomplishment. She is the 2016 local A.N.W.A. chapter (Snake River Writers) president, won NaNoWriMo and loves StoryMakers.
            Teya has been writing for as long as she can remember. At a young age she lived on a street she affectionately named Hill Street Blues, which helped her creative writing. Her Family moved to Menan where she continued her love of writing. Her father would always be and will continue to be her inspiration, even after his untimely death in 2006.
            She loves sitting in her soft chair next to the fireplace and watching out a big living room window. It gives her plenty of creative juice for stories.
            She met the love of her life in the loft of a barn. Yep, that set up some teasing from her father. They have been happily married since 2003. They have four children and all are loving and supportive of her writing.  Her oldest daughter is following in her footsteps as a writer adding her own illustrations. She refuses to comment on the trolls in the closets and under the beds. She is active in her church, has compassion for others, and a love for all life brings.

Q & A: 

1. If you had 3 wishes, what would they be? 1- talk to my dad just once, 2- be out of debt NOW so I can travel with my hubby and make memories with our kids, 3- Be able to attend every writing conference I want.

2.        Where do you write? At my desk, or if I have inspiration hit me in bed I have a pad and pen. In fact I have a pad a pen everywhere because I never know when something is going to hit me.

3.        How long does it normally take you to write a novel? Depends. I've wrote my first one in a week. Sometimes its a couple weeks. If I'm working with research it could take a couple months maybe. I really focus when I write, if I don't I tend to lose interest.

4.        What are your inspirations? Anything, anywhere. I can hear a name and a story line will form. I took a field trip with my daughter to a pumpkin patch and had a story come to me. (What happened at the pumpkin patch field trip)?

5.        How did you come to write this particular book or series? I had first part a brother and sister in an accident where she ends up in a wheelchair and hospital. But it didn't have enough it needed conflict besides his guilt. I rolled around constantly through my mind. Then one day I picked up my daughter at ballet and someone called a mom's name and I instantly had the entire rest of the story slam me. I asked to use her name in the book and her eyes for the cover to which she gave permission with a smile. I wrote a couple notes down and then drove home as fast as I could and finished the story. (The wheelchair part was inspired by my father, who spent most of his adult life in one.)

6.        What was the hardest part of writing your book, and how did you overcome it? Making sure the medical terms were correct and research was right. Plus I conversed with the ballet teacher to make sure I had things right as well.

7.        What is your writing drive? The power that keeps you going when you’re writing gets difficult? The drive is my characters. The power is knowing these stories come from inside of me and no one else could ever right like me or share these stories but me. It's a humbling and powerful thought.

8.        How did you come up with the title? See me for me title to a few changes and hits, but in the end everyone wants to be seen for who they are and one of the characters says this exact line. We want to be seen for who we are by everyone not who someone things we should be.

 9.  Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of family member? I would not have any inspiration or ideas without me Heavenly Father behind me all the way. Also a powerful push when ideas come to mind. Especially poetry it’s like a conduit opens between me and heaven and it I don't write it down I lose it.
