Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write The Hidden Chamber in the Great Sphinx?
Linda A. Cadose: I wrote The Hidden Chamber in the Great Sphinx to entice my nephew to read more. I believe that children’s books should be educational as well as entertaining. Creating a book that is a fun adventure entices a child to read.
JP: What sets The Hidden Chamber in the Great Sphinx apart from other books in the same genre?
LAC: The Hidden Chamber in the Great Sphinx is not all fiction. It is fiction based on fact. I include many facts about Egypt and her antiquities. I have been to Egypt and have visited all of the places I discuss in my book.
JP: As an author, what are the keys to your success that led to The Hidden Chamber in the Great Sphinx getting out to the public?
LAC: I credit the solid training I received when I studied for my M.A. in technical and professional writing from Northeastern University. I also have a website and a blog which I feel will assist me.
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take you to start and finish The Hidden Chamber in the Great Sphinx?
LAC: Once I have an idea for a book, I wite a one-page synopsis of my story. Then I research the facts on which my book will be based on the Internet and in libraries. It took me a year to write The Hidden Chamber in the Great Sphinx.
JP: What’s next for Linda A. Cadose?
LAC: I am currently writing my second book and plan to complete it by August 1st. Both of my books are part of a series which I intend to complete in 2014.
