Author Interview

Audrey Semprun

Audrey Semprun lives in the heart of Prescott, Arizona with her husband and the youngest of her six children. This Short Story titled: Character Chat explores dialog; using personal narration and a chat with her characters to understand why Molly is such a dim-wit, and why her author can’t seem to get a day job. On her more serious side: Audrey has completed three novels, AN ANGEL OF MERCY, ANGEL OF INSIGHT, and DESTINY’S CHILD. She is currently seeking representation for this Trilogy. She writes under the umbrella of Joyful Noiz Ministries. These three books use a Christian world view to deal with social issues. Her novels are full of faith and of hope for a better tomorrow. Audrey uses her many years as a diligent student of the Word of God to teach others how to treat one another with dignity and with kindness and respect. She has completed many other writing projects, including her memoirs, EVEN IN SILENCE, The Journey of a Lady Preacher. Audrey enjoys creating book covers, and publishes books independently, but is still learning the trade. Audrey also enjoys photography and has used many of her own original photos for her book covers. Audrey has compiled a book of Poetry/Devotionals titled, AND THE GLORY. A few of her devotionals are featured on She is an active contributor of short stories for and a member of the Professional Writers of Prescott. She has a blog at and is learning how to build a better writing platform so that when she gets published she will be able to assist in marketing her books. Audrey tweets under the name of AudreySemprun and she also has a Twitter account for fun which is aTwitoraTweet. You can follow Audrey's photo journey at Instagram. She uploads her photography as Joyfulnoizministries. Audrey’s best friend, Jan was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. In her honor Audrey created her first Item of Interest: Art created out of ‘found’ objects and titled it, “Jan’s Beads”. Audrey wanted to create something that Jan would always enjoy. Since then Audrey and her sister Debbie have created many additional pieces of art. In so doing, DNA Original Art was born. That business is still in its infancy, but is featured on Audrey’s Facebook account under Audrey Semprun. Audrey strives for excellence in all that she does.

I really enjoyed this; perhaps because I have been caught talking to my characters on occassion. They do become real and take on their own personalities. You did a great job with the conversations and I totally enjoyed reading it!

Interesting concept for creating believable characters. They jump right to life and have wondering where the story is going next.

Love it! It's a very different approach to a story, with its abundance of dialogue and author involvement. View into an author's world.

This author just might be the next breath of noise you hear repeating the giggles of a character gone a muck, I laughed right out loud!

I love the story of Molly. Her wit and intrusion. She sounds just like an angsty writer's muse who works to distract a writer. I took the story as a mirror of how we might process stressful events. That voice in our heads, is it friend or foe? That muse, is it in our favor? That nagging voice when we seek a job, or try to do a project that tells us others are better, we're not good enough. That certain muse is nothing short of a lie. The author shows we can overcome that doubt. While other characters are involved too, it shows us we also have an inner support. Crafted in humor, this one tells that inner secret.
