BB&B: What inspires you to create a story?
Jessica: I get my ideas from movies, books, and current events that blend at night and give me crazy dreams. I keep notes on the more interesting dreams.
BB&B: How do you decide on the setting of your story?
Jessica: I chose the setting for the first book I wrote. All the books that came afterwards were decided by the characters and where their journeys take them.
BB&B: To what extent do your characters remind you of yourself or someone you know?
Jessica: Without mentioning any names, my characters do share traits with people in my life, and some traits I wish to find in people.
BB&B: Can you tell us about one of your characters and what it is about that character that you like best?
Jessica: John McCall. He is a tough as nails warrior with a kind heart. He tries to hide it, but at times, it shows either in his eyes or in his actions.
BB&B: Which book has this character?
BB&B: What do you love best about being an author?
Jessica: What I love best is writing about the family I love, the Ruling Clan, and hearing that my readers are sharing my love.
BB&B: What can fans expect from you in the future?
Jessica: I am currently editing the next installment in the Sea-anan Saga and the first installment to the Oceanan Saga.
BB&B: Do you have any tips for new writers?
Jessica: First of all, you can’t please everyone. You will grow bald if you try. The best thing to do is to write the story from your heart, polish it the best you can, and then let it go. Some will like it and some will not. It is just a fact of life you cannot change. Secondly, whether you are an indie author or published with a publishing house, marketing your book is time consuming and tedious at times, but a necessity. Always be kind and courteous to your followers. And enjoy the journey.
