In the interview below, Vincent B. “Chip” LoCoco shares more about his latest release, “bella book coverA Song for Bellafortuna”.

Where do you get inspiration for your stories?

Chip: My inspiration for my stories comes from music. Music plays an integral part in my writing. In A Song for Bellafortuna, the villagers use music to come together, while in return it provides them with a glimpse to a better life.


What genre do you write and why?

Chip:    I write in the genre of historical fiction. The “why” is easy. I was a history major in college, and have always loved reading about and researching stories from the past.


You mentioned research. How did you do research for your book?

Chip: Read. Read. And Read. The internet has made research so much easier, particularly the way you can find photos from just about any local, as well as numerous articles and books on the web.


Your books are based in Italy. Why so?

Chip: My family hails from Cefalù on the Northern coast of Sicily. I am a third generation Italian/American. I was born in New Orleans, which has such a large Sicilian/American community. My writing is a tribute to all of those who came as well as to my own family.


Do you ever get writer’s block? What helps you overcome it?

Chip: Of course I do. Thankfully, I live in New Orleans. A walk in the French Quarter – a modern day Latin Quarter – usually awakes the creative spirit. Just bring along a notebook, and after your sojourn, sit in a coffee shop and let your writing flow again.
