The Interrogation Room with Jamie White
Please give a cold dead welcome to the lovely Jamie White to the hot seat this week!
What were you like at school?
I was always the new kid in school, so I spent a lot of time reading alone. Think Rory in Gilmore Girls.
Give us an insight into your main character. What does he/she do that is so special?
She survived. (If you knew all the stuff that poor character went through, you’d definitely consider that special. LOL. There are times I feel bad… #WriterGuilt)
What are you working on at the minute?
Right now, I am working on the sixth book of my Lightworker series, and making some tweaks to the fifth.
What genre are your books?
What draws you to this genre?
I’m drawn to this genre because I have always loved it. I think it came from watching Poltergeist so much. It was my favorite movie when I was five, and I seriously knew every word.
Do you work to an outline or plot or do you prefer just see where an idea takes you?
I tried outlining a book one time. A character had other ideas…
How do you think you’ve evolved creatively?
I think I am more willing to take chances now.
If this book is part of a series, tell us a little about it?
This series is about a girl named Courtney who learns that everything she knew about herself and her family was a lie. These discoveries lead her on a road that nearly breaks her mentally, and she’s forced to pick up the pieces of her life and find her place in the world again.
Do you proofread/edit all your own books or do you get someone to do that for you?
I do proofread and edit, and then have my husband go over it as well. Once I am comfortable with it (and my awesome beta, Michelle Cornwell-Jordan reads it), I send it to my editor, Elaine Roughton. She’s awesome. I also have an awesome artist, RJ Keith, who’s been re-doing covers for me. (Yes, I am an ‘80s kid)
Which social network worked best for you?
I’m really having fun with Twitter and Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/jamiewauthor/) now.
What is your favourite book and why?
I can’t pick only one because a trilogy by Christopher Pike is my favorite: Remember Me. This book not entertained me, but it inspired me spiritually and creatively.
What is your favourite quote?
“A lie is a lie. Unless your friends and family are in on it. Then it’s a ‘commonly held belief’.” – Christopher Titus
