I have known this pretty lady for a few years over the internet. F.J. is kind, compassionate and funny. She knows her way around a horse and the pen and paper. She has a new release "Lost Betrayal" with Solstice Publishing. I think you will fall in love with her as much as I have. Here's the interview;
When did you start writing and when did you decide to take it seriously?
I was a junior in High School when I wrote my first poem and went on to win second place in a state wide competition in poetry. I also write songs but haven’t had any luck with those. I started getting kind of serious about writing in my thirties writing articles and doing some copy writing but it wasn’t until last year that I sold my first book.
Who are your favorite authors?
Boy, that’s a hard one because I can appreciate writing ability regardless of genre and I have a wide array of tastes, really. For instance, I love Stephen King. He’s a master at suspense but I just did a proof read of Cooper, a western written by Tell Cotten, and he does a wonderful job with subtle humor and dialogue. I have to say also that you’re one of my favorite authors as well because you do such a wonderful job at making the characters real and your personality shows through your writing. You’ve got a great voice.
What books in your collection have you read more than once?
What are your writing goals? Where do you see yourself this time next year?
6. My last question; You are stuck on an island forever... you can only pick one answer for each of the following questions.
You can only have one restaurant on your island.... who do you chose? –Vittorinos Italian Restaurant from Loudon, TN . I love their Calzones!
One movie – Seabiscuit – That movie is so inspirational!
One book –Bible. That’s my rock, but it’s also full of some great stories so you’re killing two needs with one stone!
One form of medication –I’d rather have wine, LOL!
One animal –Dog. I’d be too worried about not having grass for a horse.
