Wampum Exchange Interview by Debbie Roppolo
Debbie Ropollo's Amelia is featured here. Her two books about this amazing child are well worth reading.
Debbie has  few questions for me:
                                                                                                                          Product Details
1: What is the working title of your book?
The Wampum Exchange
2: Where did the idea come from for the book
While I was researching my first book, 101 Glimpses of the North Fork and Islands, I came across the fact that my town was the first English settlement in New York, That was all I needed to whet my appetite to delve into more history.
3: What genre does your book fall under?
It is a Y/A historical novella of historical fiction.

4: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
 I don't have any children or adults that I have in mind.

5: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?

This story is about how seventeenth century Daniel meets a challenge of doing the right thing and accepting the consequences, much like a child of today.
6: Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
I hope to have my e-book out very soon--self-published.
7: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
About a year and a half.
8: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
The Light in the Forest from years ago might be similar.
9: Who or what inspired you to write this book?
I have always been fascinated by the past and here where I live, I walk by so much early history that I felt compelled to write a fictional story about it.
10: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?

My portrayal of how people lived back then would appeal to many especially because they made almost everything they ate or used. How different it is today!
