Welcome to my Sunday Showcase where I am delighted to feature wonderful authors and illustrators. Everyone has successfully journeyed the path of publishing with my guidance and I am so proud to share interesting insights into what makes them unique.
I am delighted to introduce Making Magic Happen Academy author, Jennifer Sharp, author of romance, non fiction and children’s books.
|1. Where do you get your ideas?||I get ideas from everywhere at anytime. Walking on the beach or rendezvousing in a bush nearby my home that has an amazing waterfall in the middle of it. When I’m drinking coffee or eating chocolate and always in the shower! Quite often too, when I try to meditate and still my mind, I’m sure both sides of my brain are concocting stories, debating plot lines with each other.|
|2. If you could be anywhere in the world where would it be and why?||Laying under the stars on the beach listening to the waves unfold in their natural rhythm as they reach the shoreline. There is just something special about being able to let go of so much and clear my thoughts under Luna’s watch.|
|3. How did publishing your first book change your writing process?||I don’t know that my processes have changed but I’ve learnt the value of finding a good editor and beta readers.|
|4. Do you have any strange writing habits?||I have to have that coffee on the table beside the chips or chocolate, the cat on my knee purring and dogs on either side of me. Then I’m set. I’m not sure if that’s strange or not though!|
|5. What is your favourite quote?||This is difficult to answer there are so many of them. The current would probably be “Sometimes in the middle of nowhere, you find yourself.”|
|6. How do you choose the names for your characters?||I have a baby names book. The names I choose have to reflect the character I’m writing about. That way the characters become real people with their own personalities.|
|7. Which of your characters would you be least likely to get along with?||I’d clash with a character I’m currently writing about. She’s gossipy, has to know everyone’s business then puts her own slant on it. But, that also makes her fun.|
|8. What literary character is most like you?||Hmm…not sure about this. May be you could answer that for me … 😉|
|9. What is the most difficult thing about writing a character from the opposite sex?||I haven’t come across difficulty with this yet. I think being a romantic, the guys a write about all reflect the kind of guy I want!|
|10. What is the hardest thing about writing?||Putting my bum in the seat and doing it.
Instead of just gotta get another coffee, the dogs need another walk, must do the washing. Oh no! look at the time…
|11. What got left out of the final draft?||Lots and lots of flowery ramble.|
|12. If you could tell your younger self anything what would it be?||Just do it. Don’t worry about what anyone else thinks of you. If you don’t give it a go you’ll always be left wondering.|
