Hello Janiera. It's great having you visit today. Thanks for taking time out to talk with me a bit. First off, tell us about your current release.
Soul Sister is truly the urban Fantasy book I’ve always wanted to write. It has romance, action and fashion. What more could a girl want? I’ve always wanted to write about vampires who sort of aristocratic but lived a normal life. I think people can really relate to the main characters Ani and Dana while still be infatuated with them.
What is the hardest part of writing your books?
I really wanted to make sure that every character had a different personality and a different voice. The hardest part of writing Soul Sisters was really thinking about what I wanted to say and how I should say it that would make that character stand out. Otherwise, the storyline and flow of events were very easy to come up with.
Do you listen to music while writing? If so what?
I’m a really strange bird so for me it’s not music but background TV noise. I guess I can chalk this to growing up in the public school system where there was always noise! lol If I’m stuck on any part of my book I’ll turn on a show and let it play in background. Usually it feeds me some inspiration and it actually isn’t as distraction as people would think.
What are your favorite TV shows?
I am a serious original Twilight Zone fan and Rod Serling is one of my favorite writers, he was just brilliant. Current shows I love are The Walking Dead, American Horror Story and Once Upon a time. They’re all written so well the tension and anticipation is just amazing! All of them have influenced my writing in some way or another.
What are you passionate about these days?
I had to stop going to college because of a illness and it was hard finding a writing job but now I write an entertainment writer for Directorslive.com and I’m working on my second book. My passion is to become a professional author and make a living out of doing so. I didn’t think it was possible but it is now looking better every day!
What was one of the most surprising things you learned while writing your books?
That I have two completely different personalities lol. I’m more shy and calm like Dana, it takes a while for me to warm up to someone. However, I’m very up front and want what I want like Ani. It was fun to play with both of these personalities in the book.
Janiera enjoys feeding her book addiction when she is not writing. She is also a book blogger at Beauty and Books where she mixes being a book nerd with keeping things chic. When not reading or writing she is freelance writing in the entertainment industry. Soul Sisters is her debut novel.
