Blog tour: The Shapeshifter's Secret - Interview with Heather Ostler

Hello fellow readers! Today the blog tour of The Shapeshifter's Secret stops at Maji Bookshelf! We have an interview with the author, Heather Ostler where she talks about her book and gives you a little peak on what to expect in The Shapeshifter's Secret. Hope you enjoy the interview as much as I had!

The Official Biography: Heather Ostler grew up near the mountains with a rambunctiously entertaining family. She majored in English at Utah Valley University, and soon began composing stories about masquerades, water nymphs, and shapeshifters. She and her husband, Kellen, reside in Highland, Utah with two remarkably pleasant pugs.

The Fun Biography:
I like fortune cookies, lucky pennies, shooting stars, and implausible coincidences. I’m always cold and have at least 5 different flavors of hot cocoa on hand at all times. I’m a sucker for happy endings and like to eat dessert first. I think Muppets Christmas Carol is one of the best movies ever, along with The Parent Trap. English accents, cloudy days, and family inside jokes make me smile. I am a writer, and I love finding inspiration in art, music, nature, seasons, and relationships.
lizabeth Norris briefly taught high school English and history before trading the San Diego beaches and sunshine for Manhattan's snowpocalyptic winters. She harbors dangerous addictions to guacamole, red velvet cupcakes, sushi, and Argo Tea, fortunately not all together. Unraveling is her first novel.

To start off, describe The Shapeshifter's Secre in three words! Werecats. Adventure. Mysteries. 
What is the one thing that inspired you to write The Shapeshifter's Secret? When I was 13 years old I told my dad that I wanted to become a writer. He was really supportive and told me to go for it. He passed away not too long after that, but I never forgot his encouraging words. That experience really gave me the motivation to finish The Shapeshifter’s Secret. 
If you were a shapeshifter, what animal would you choose? That’s tough. I think both lions and white tigers have this sort of elegance and power about them, but I would definitely love the speed of a cheetah. 
Where do you do most of your writing? what about reading? (if you want to attach any pictures and ill put them in the post, it would be fun!) It really changes every hour, and the places are kind of strange. My favorite spots for both reading and writing are the stairs, the living room floor, or outside. 

What are your upcoming plans? will you write a sequel to The Shapeshifter's Secret? or a totally different book? any sneak peaks?  I’m working on the sequel right now, but I also have a lot of other ideas that I would love to explore in my writing. 
Here is the trailer for The Shapershifter's Secret!
