Author Helene Gadot #interview

Please give a warm welcome to

Tell us a bit about yourself

*waves* Hey! I’m Helene and I’m a massive nerd. Especially for superheroes and BBC shows.


Have you always wanted to become an author?

Oh yeah. Since 4th grade.


What was your inspiration for your current book/series?

I have several ongoing, but my latest is The Legion Academy which was inspired by the same things as the Aces and Knaves series. I wanted to write about women who…well, quite frankly kick the hell out of abusive assholes. (Can I curse here?) And what better way to do that than with superpowers?



What are you working on now?

I just finished The Legion Academy, so I’m taking a small break to work on one of my other pen names, but soon I need to get going on the 4th Aces and Knaves book.


Do you have any quirks while writing?

OK yes and it’s a little weird. I have to have painted nails when I write. Well, not HAVE to, but I much prefer it. Something about looking down at chipped or bare nails bothers and distracts me.


What are your hopes for the future?

I hope I get to keep writing and living my dream of making a career out of art. (Ugh, that sounds so mushy and sentimental) I hope I get to kick ass and take names, make millions and move to Alaska. That sounds better.



Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?

Try everything. Writing is not a one size fits all. What works for some, won’t for others. And more importantly, ass in chair. To succeed, you actually have to write the thing.


Do you have anything to say to your readers?

I adore all of you. Thank you, for making this life of mine possible. (Time to go. I’m getting sentimental again)
