I have with me today, author Jamie Salisbury, who writes romance novels. I know, not my usual genre, but I really like talking to authors outside the genres I read to understand the differences in genres, the differences in writing styles, and reasons why I should be interested in the books. So, without taking to much of your time, here it is!
Interview with Jamie Salisbury, author of the Tudor Dynasty Series
Describe your books? What genre would you classify it into?
Romance, historical and contemporary. Women’s fiction, chick-lit.
How do you come up with the idea for the books?
Usually, the idea just drops out of no-where.
When and why did you begin writing? What do you enjoy most about writing?
I’ve been writing since I was a child. I started getting serious in high school when I took a creative writing class. What I enjoy the most about my writing is taking something from a simple idea I had in my head and turning it an actual story.
Where do your stories come from, a dream, imagination, or something completely else?
There is no one place where they come from. One could be loosely based on true life, another may be totally fabricated.
How has your journey from writing to getting published been?
Satisfying. I had tried going the traditional route and got shot down. So I started researching doing the indie publishing/ebook route and that’s where I am. It’s a great fit.
