Review - Author Interview – Marla Martenson

What do you consider the most challenging about writing a novel, or about writing in general? The most challenging for me is to find the time. I own a business and have a lot going on. I find that if I get some writing done first thing in the morning, it works better for me as my creativity starts to deplete as the day goes on.
Do you intend to make writing a career? I would love to make writing a career, but not my only career. I am a Gemini, and there are two people in here. I have so many interests, that I will always do more than one thing.
Why did you choose to write this particular book? I chose to write Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker because the stories that I had in my brain were just clamoring to get out and onto the page to be shared.
What was the hardest part about writing this book? It was my first memoir. My first two books were self- help, so it was totally different. Diary needed a back-story, character development, etc. It was a lot harder.
Did you learn anything from writing this book and what was it? I learned that all of my experiences in life good and bad are worth something. Our experiences teach us valuable lessons and if we can look back with humor, we can really benefit from the lesson.
What are your goals as a writer? My goals as a writer are to entertain and inspire others. It feels great when a reader writes to me and tells me how much they enjoyed one of my books.
Can we expect any more books from you in the future? I do plan to keep writing, I really love the process, so stay tuned.
Have you started another book yet? I am writing short stories about my days working as a waitress. I hope to put them all together in one book at some point.

Quit-witted Marla takes her readers for a hilarious romp through her days as an LA matchmaker where looks are everything and money talks. The Cupid of Beverly Hills has introduced countless couples who lived happily ever-after, but for every success story there are hysterically funny dating disasters with high-maintenance, out of touch clients. Marla writes with charm and self-effacement about the universal struggle to love and be loved.
Martenson’s irresistible quick wit will have you rolling on the floor.
