Below is an interview I did with Tricia Silverman!
1. Did you always want to be a nutritionist?
I was always intrigued by the health books and magazines my mom had around the house. This, combined with my struggles with weight when I was growing up, led me on the path to become a nutritionist. I never knew exactly what I wanted to be, but since my family owned a deli in New York, there was always a heavy emphasis on the topic of food. I was very fascinated by the fat-free wave in the 1980s, and I discovered in high school that fitness was helpful in my weight management, so my evolution into a nutritionist and fitness instructor seemed to be a likely phenomenon from all of these factors. Of course, I learned that going completely fat-free wasn’t all it was cracked up to be, but it makes for good stories now in my presentations.
2. Eating healthy is a way of life. Have you always eaten healthy, or was it something you had to learn?
We ate healthy during the week when I was growing up, but weekends became what I now call a “freakend.” The freakends growing up started with late-night pigouts on Saturday nights that followed with a bagel, donut, cake, and cookie-filled Sundays. I learned more about a balanced way of eating when I became a dietitian. In the years since becoming a dietitian, I learned more about mindful eating, which is a kinder and more liberating way to treat your body and joyfully consume an occasional treat.
3. What was writing this novel like? Did you find it easy to convey to people how to live healthy strictly through your writing?
I enjoyed the writing because it came easily due to the process of the group I hired to help me self-publish. They recommended doing an early data dump of all of the stories, quotes, and facts that I wanted to include in my book. I did this data dump, then organized it into sections, which gave me the structure I needed to complete the book. I speak a lot about nutrition, and I looked at the writing as an extended and more in-depth presentation. It was all of the information that I wanted to tell the attendees of my seminars if we had more time to spend together.
4. Was this the first novel you have ever written?
This is the first book that I have published. I have started other books over the years that I plan to bring to life soon.
5. At what point in your career did you decide you had to write this novel to guide people in living a healthy lifestyle?
After many years of starting and stopping writing books, and trying to learn self-publishing on my own, and then getting busy, and then finding I needed a refresher on what I already learned, I decided for my first book to hire a company that could help me bring my book to completion. They helped with many pieces of self-publishing, such as editing, interior design, cover design, printing, getting my book on Amazon, and more. My business was so busy that the book wouldn’t have materialized without their help.
6. How long did it take you to write this novel?
I got serious about it in the spring of 2018, and it was published in the Fall of 2019. It took 17 months.
7. Did you have a specific writing process when crafting an outline for this novel?
After I did the data dump mentioned above, the outline pretty much wrote itself. I have numerous presentations that I deliver to employee wellness programs, at conferences, and to senior centers. Each chapter ended up being a more in-depth look at a presentation topic.
8. Describe your average writing day.
My average writing day was working on other aspects of my business, then carving the time to write. Sometimes using a timer was helpful in keeping me on-task with my writing. Setting aside blocks of time to write was critical in my process. Having the company I hired have deadlines for me with financial ramifications was a great motivator toward the end.
9. How important is it for you to connect to your readers? Do you talk with them on social media?
This is so important. My readers are very active on Facebook, and that is where I spend a lot of time. My readers attend my presentations and ask great questions, so one way to look at my book is a compilation of answers to a series of questions that have been asked of me over the years.
10. If you wanted, what other genres would you branch into after this one?
I have always found memoir, non-fiction, humorous books, and romance novels interesting. I still feel I have another nutrition book that needs to be birthed before venturing into another genre.
