Can Authors Write Adult Fiction And Children’s Books Under The Same Name? Award Winning Author, SC Russell, Says, “Why Not?”
Interview with Award-winning Author SC Russell
“Big changes from minuscule choices and a good attitude in life”
Though some may disagree with an author using the same pen name for books in children and adult categories, SC Russell claims that it is the message that is important. With the new children’s book Holly & Guacamolly and recent success over contemporary women’s fiction, A Lil’ Somethin’ series, SC Russell appears to flip-flop between genres with each release.
“I wouldn’t call it flip-flopping necessarily. I enjoy having several projects going simultaneously. For whatever reason, some make it to the finish line first. As long as I am always working to get a message out there, then it is progress in my book,” explains SC Russell.
Holly & Guacamolly, released this spring, is targeted toward grade school kids. SC Russell is already booking for author visits this fall to read this title aloud to groups of students. A delightful story of two school friends with a clever spin on a traditional lemonade stand on the driveway brings a few surprises to the neighborhood and to readers everywhere. In November of last year, A Lil’ Somethin’ On the Side fans were surprised with the quick follow-up release of the second book of the series, A Lil’ Somethin’ More. Adult readers seem to be enamored by the contagious personality of Sunnie and definitely wanted more of her perspective on everyday topics, bringing it in the top one hundred in Amazon sales for Thanksgiving weekend of 2015. SC Russell commented excitedly, “I could not have been more thankful!”
As challenging as it is to find out which direction SC Russell plans to head next, it is safe to say that she has many irons in the fire. She admitted to at least seven other books in different stages of development, and also denied getting overly excited by the talk of the A Lil’ Somethin’ series being reviewed for a possible future at the box office.
“There are so many readers. I don’t need to be a one-stop shop; rather it is just that I have messages for readers of various ages,” claims SC. When asked about these messages, SC Russell dares that you find out for yourself, but promises that you will meet positive, real characters that will stick with you. She points out that it is easy to find sugary sweet characters, and equally simple to find mean girls and villains, but SC thrives on having her characters be faced with situations that could happen to anyone with outcomes that defy what seems possible by simply using humor and positive energy. “Big changes from minuscule choices and a good attitude in life,” adds SC Russell.
