Meet Featured Indie Authors Anthony and Jeremhy Cesar!
Join us for a Book Signing on Saturday, November 18 from 1 - 2pm.
1. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
Anthony (A): My name is Anthony Cesar and I have been writing this book since I was nine. Also, I have Asperger's, and this book is about my perspective on the world.
Jeremhy (J): My name is Jeremhy Cesar, and I am Anthony Cesar’s brother. I assisted in the creation of Molly and Mousey: The Idiotic Husband. I started high school at the age of 12, and I help Anthony to write books from my experiences in English at school.
2. What do you do when you are not writing?
A: When I am not writing, I watch TV or read a book because it gives me ideas for my next story.
J: When I am not writing, I am studying because I love intelligence, playing some sort of puzzle game (e.g., Chess, Monopoly, Sudoku), or on leisure time. Sometimes there is an overlap between studying and leisure.
3. When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
A: I first realized I wanted to be a writer when I started watching a lot of cartoons. Watching those cartoons made me want to make my own show and write my own episodes.
J: When Anthony and I started playing toys at a young age, Anthony realized that he wanted to write a book about the episodes we played. When we drafted the first story, it underwent many edits and changes. At that point, I realized I wanted to help Anthony become a writer and also become a writer myself.
4. What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
A: I can type very fast.
J: If you consider breaking all the lead in a pencil within a day, then yes, I do have an interesting writing quirk. Funny story actually: I bought a six-pack of mechanical pencils
(never buy just six pencils if you’re out), and while I was studying math, I went through all of those pencils, I kid you not, in two hours.
5. Do you have an upcoming book? If so, can you tell us a little bit about it?
A: Yes, there will be an upcoming book. The next book is going to be much crazier than the first story, while giving everyone a good laugh and keeping them on the edge of their
J: Yes, there will be an upcoming book and hopefully more to come after. Introducing more characters, setting, and plot twists, the next book is going to be even more chaotic than the first story, while giving everyone a good laugh and keeping them on the edge of their seats in suspense.
6. Is anything in your book based on real life experiences or purely all imagination?
A: Our book is mixed some real life experiences that happened to me in the form of imagination.
J: We added real life experiences that have happened to us in the story, so our imagination of this whole Molly and Mousey trilogy is based on real life events.
7. What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why?
A: My favorite chapter to write was when Mousey was speeding while driving and Mousey going to clothes store because of the chaos and madness Mousey caused.
J: There were so many fun chapters to write, but I think my favorite part to write come up with the whole Mrs. Blitey scenario. I had tons of fun with Anthony brainstorming the things that could’ve happened in place of Mrs. Blitey being a robot. Making the whole plot twist about Mrs. Blitey being a robot was a great experience for me. My favorite Mrs. Blitey scene was when she threw the stapler at the hen.
8. Who is an author that you look up to today?
A: An author that I look up to today is Jeff Kinney.
J: An author that I look up to today would have to be J.K. Rowling. Her story is just incredible and I still admire her to date.
9. What is your favorite genre of book to read?
A: My favorite genre of book to read is teen fiction.
J: My favorite genre of book to read would have to be Action and Adventure. I also love a good Mystery book.
10. What is your favorite book?
A: Of course, my favorite book would have to be Molly and Mousey: The Idiotic Husband.
J: Of course, my favorite book would have to be Heroes of Olympus: The Blood Of Olympus by Rick Riordan. It is an epic conclusion to the Heroes of Olympus trilogy.
11. Is there any particular authors or books that influenced you growing up?
A: Diary of a Wimpy Kid books and some teen fiction books have influenced me growing up.
J: As aforementioned, Riordan and Rowling’s book have done a number (in a good way) on my choice of books and my reading style.
12. Who is an author that has inspired you?
A: Jeff Kinney is a author who has inspired me because he made many great books and is still writing books today.
J: There are so many amazing authors out there, but one who stuck out to me would have to be Rick Riordan. His books are amazing, and those books inspired me to read and write
13. Do you have any advice to give to aspiring writers?
A: Here’s some advice: take your time writing your book and don’t rush. Also, get honest opinions from people who read your book so it can help you next book improve.
J: Writers! From me to you, never lose sight of your goals, whether it be long-term or short. Pursue your dreams and never give up. Perseverance ALWAYS pays off. Passion is an ever-burning fire, so LET IT BURN!
