January 21, 2010

 

Name and title: Andrea Jones, Hook & Jill

Release date: August 2009.

Favorite guilty pleasure: Captain Hook.

Writing crutch? My characters. I place them in a situation, and they show me what they'll do.

Plotter or Pantser? Plotter, like the Captain!

Favorite movie snack: Cranberry juice, with a shot of rum.

Personal style: It doesn't have to be in vogue; it just has to look good on ME.

Favorite time of day to write: 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.

Favorite writing spot: My fainting couch (see Captain Hook's ship cabin furnishings, Chapter 10).

Favorite writing motivation: My dreams and daydreams. And, ironically, my real life.

Favorite weekend activity: Reading, by myself or to my children.

Favorite vacation spot: Achill Island, Ireland, closely followed by London, England, where Peter Pan came alive for J.M. Barrie.

Favorite writing tip: Don't worry about writing chronologically. Write whatever chapter — beginning, middle, or end — is playing itself out in your heart at the moment.

Finish these sentences:
                When I was young, I…    wanted to grow up.
                When I grow old, I…    am glad I did!
                When I first fell in love, I…    Believed in fairy tales.
                I love to read because…    Stories take me where I want to go, information teaches me what I need to know.
