Author Spotlight – P.S. Winn

I think she deserves the “Most Prolific Author Award.” I met P. S. Winn when she submitted a great story for my first anthology, Where Dreams and Visions Live.  Since then she has published dozens of books. Here they are. Amazing! You can find them all at




What inspired you to write your first book? – In 2012, my husband was told he didn’t have long to live. We decided to move to my hometown so I could be closer to my family. Moving fast, we almost had to leave some of the writing I had done and hid in a closet. I decided to put them in book form then and there and now it seems after 44, I can’t stop.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? – I believe in hope despite odds. I like to think you will find that even when the books are supernatural or science fiction. I like to add a bit of a spiritual twist. Not religious so much as the spiritual side of hope and love.

What books have most influenced your life most? – Anything and everything I have ever read has an impact on my own works. I think this is also true of anyone I meet or anywhere I have visited.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing? – I hate the promotion, but the rest of writing is always an amazing journey. I love my characters because they take over the books and let me know what should be written.

Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it? – I always learn something new. In the latest book, “Deadly Afflictions” I had to learn a lot about anxiety disorder. I love characters that overcome the flaws and problems they are dealt.

Who is your intended audience and why should they read your book? – Anyone who likes to get away from the world for a moment in time. I write everything from preschool and young adult to a lot of supernatural novels. I also think it is the readers who make the stories. Their own imaginations join with the writer’s to make a book more special than it started.

Tell us a little bit about your cover art. Who designed it? Why did you go with that particular image/artwork? – Some of the art work I draw myself, like for “Wings to Whispers” and “Viewings”. A few books are pictures I have taken and the others I use those available on create space. For the book “Viewings” the drawing of an old barn came first and the story worked around the image.

Do any of the books you write come from your own childhood? – Yes, especially my stretched stories series, which are humorous tall tales that are fun explanations for everyday things like why a cow says moo.

How do you feel when someone disagrees with something you have written? – I try to look at what they say and learn from it. The reviews that are unrealistic I try and ignore, but that can be hard. I know there are some people who write bad reviews out of meanness, which is awful, but also a fact of life that branches way beyond writing.

How do you make sure the information for your nonfiction books is accurate and up-to-date? – Mostly the internet or watching the news. I like writing supernatural books in parallel worlds when imagination is the guide and anything goes. But, I still try to maintain realism.

How long does it take to complete one of your books? – I have written 44 books in just over 4 years, so a month or two is my usual time, but once I wrote a book in a week and my 600 page book took closer to three months.
