Everyone has a story: Rilla Zerbert

After introducing the mini-interviews last week, I’ve received a lot of interest in continuing them, so consider them now a permanent part of the blog!

Today’s mini-interview is with Rilla Zerbert, an American writer working on a new book called Dragonfly Prince.

What is one of your dreams for your life?
My temporal dream is to publish my book, Dragonfly Prince. It’s a modern Alice-In-Neverland adventure.

My eternal dream is to go to heaven. I want to be with God always. In the meantime, I’m trying to learn what it is to love in an eternal sense.

What is something on your bucket list?
I’d like to visit Ta Prohm temple monastery, dating from 1186 A.D. I’ll like to see with my own eyes the decorative carvings of the animals, specifically the stegosaurus. I get super excited by the evidence of humans living with dinosaurs. Ever since I learned about the Dracorex Hogwartsia, I’ve been interested in the correlations between dinosaurs and dragonlore. And, yeah, I’m a nerd.

What is the best advice you ever received?
“Give it a week, and you’ll have a whole new set of problems.”

That probably sounds pessimistic, but I don’t view it that way. It means that what I’m going through now isn’t going to be forever, and I’m going to be challenged more in the future. As much as I hate the struggles and crises, they force me to focus on the whole picture and my priorities. That’s always good thing.

Thanks for taking the time to do this interview, Rilla!
