Face Book Interview

An interview with Aaron Lehman.
Tell us a little about yourself.
Aaron Lehman started writing for children and teens after a thirty year teaching career in Slave Lake, Alberta, Canada.  Mystery on Dog Island was published by BookSurge/CreateSpace in 2005, Return to Dog Island in 2007 and North of Dog Island in 2009.  The trilogy features a 14 year old Aboriginal boy who is torn between his two …cultures in Mystery and Return and finds success as a young adult in North of Dog Island.  Aaron’s wife Winifred is a retired RN and is a great proof reader.  They have 3 adult children and 5 grandchildren.  Aaron is a member of Writers Guild of Alberta and is happy to be part of the Northern Alberta Authors’ group and the Slave Lake Writers Group.
What is your latest published work?
 The book launch for my latest book, Friends of the Fencerow, was on May 4, 2012.  It is a 36 page book for Grade 3 reading level. Where do you get your ideas from?
 Most of my ideas have come from personal and family experiences.
 What are you working on right now?
I am currently working on a collection of short stories.
 Do you have any tips or advice for aspiring authors?
My advice is to write what you know and thoroughly research any topic you are going to pursue.  Always have your manuscript edited by a competent editor and proof reader.
 Do you have a crazy story about an aspect of the writing life, perhaps from a school visit or event?
 The most exciting part of being an author is to be invited for a reading and presentation to a school group.  It is rewarding to have young readers tell you they really like your books and are looking forward to your next book.
 Is there anything else you’d like to add, such as a website or blog?
 My web page and blog is: e-mail-
 Thanks Aaron, Simon Rose
