Hey Movellians, and happy Thursday to you all!

Hey guys! 

We still have the Tribute to Stan Lee open and I would encourage you all to be a part of that!


Today’s interview is with the wonderful Ray Lidstone from Canada, who has been here on Movellas since June 2017. She currently has 11 Movellas available to read online, all with interesting storylines and unique characters! We thought it would be a good idea to delve a little deeper into her writing and learn a bit more about her.

Lily Anna was lucky enough to be able to ask her some questions:


Which is your favourite genre to write and why?

Definitely fantasy, because you can be as creative as you want and don’t need to worry much about realism. I can focus on the characters and worldbuilding.


Good point!
I believe you make all your covers yourself. Which is your favourite and why?

Definitely the Southern Falls cover, probably because it has the nicest contrast. I also use all my own pictures.


I love the southern falls cover, and it’s great you use your own photos!
I’ve also noticed a lot of your stories have characters with very unique names. How do you usually come up with them?

Usually by starting simple then changing up a few letters/sounds. Either that or I just smoosh sounds together until I find something I like.


If you were stuck on a desert island, which of your characters would you most like to be there with you?

Definitely Olyxe from Our Dark Lies— She’s tough and knows how to survive.


Sounds like a good choice.
Random question now, but if you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would you pick?

Probably oatmeal, so long as I got to have some blueberries and brown sugar with it.


Interesting choice, not sure I would pick that myself!
Who or what is your biggest source of writing inspiration?

Honestly? I have no clue. I guess I’m influenced a little bit by everything and everyone around me.


I guess inspiration is everywhere, we all find it in different ways.
And finally, last question - if you could shout out anyone on Movellas or in your real life, who would you pick and why?

In all honesty there’s too many wonderful people, both here and in my life, who are deserving— I don’t have the time or space to list them all!


Fair enough. Thank you for talking to me!



Make sure you go and check out Ray’s profile! Thanks again for taking part. We’re building a nice little bunch of interviews now. If you’d still like one, then be sure to get in touch. It’s great to get to know each other and be able to share these interviews with everyone.

Have a great day, and stay tuned for the next upload!
