Blog Tour Interview With Renee Yancy, Author of More Precious Than Gold

Available from Amazon UK and Amazon US

I'm pleased to welcome author : Renee Yancy to The Writing Desk:

Tell us about your latest book

A young woman refuses to become a pawn in her grandmother’s revenge scheme and forgoes a life of wealth and royalty to pursue a nursing career as America enters WWI and the Pandemic Flu of 1918 wreaks havoc in New York City. 

What is your preferred writing routine? 

I don’t really have one, as I am still working as an RN.

What advice do you have for aspiring writers? 

Don’t send in your first completed manuscript too soon.

What have you found to be the best way to raise awareness of your books? 

I’m still working on that!

Tell us something unexpected you discovered during your research.

That the Pandemic Flu of 1918 affected mainly young people in the prime of life, ages 20 to 40.

What was the hardest scene you remember writing?

There is one scene that was difficult, as it was based on a true nursing experience I had with a young child on a Pediatric unit. I don’t want to say too much on that, as I don’t want to give that away.

What are you planning to write next?

I have ideas for an American Western/Frontier trail series, as well as a WWII story I homage to my hometown of Buffalo, NY, which is heavily Italian and Polish. Pierogi! Pasta!
