Interview With Author Sandra Rose
What is the book about? The Seductive Schoolhouse Scandal is inspired by true events.
In one of the poorest cities in the country, a corrupt school administrator stole from students, defrauded the district out of hundreds of thousands of dollars, and retaliated against those who reported his actions before justice was served.
What inspired you to write the book? As one of the whistleblowers in this school corruption case, I was harassed, intimidated, and threatened by the guilty party. Followers of this event knew what transpired, but the general population did not know what those who cooperated with district and state investigators had to endure. I refer to this time as 'the dark years of my life'.
What was your profession? I was a schoolteacher, at all levels, and a literacy specialist.
How did you feel when your book was published? It was exhilarating to see the first copy of my book, especially my portrait on the back cover.
What advise do you give to struggling writers? I advise struggling writers to persevere, especially when looking for a publisher. As a new writer, I contacted several hundred publishers until I found one to publish my novel. During this journey, I took the advice of several
publishing companies along the way.
Where do you see the future of publishing? I think self-publish and digital books are our future.
