First up on The Page to Page Promo’s Author Interview Series is Jordyn Meryl! Here’s Jordyn’s interview.
A Little on the Personal Side:
• What is your all-time favorite book? The Great Gatsby
• What types of books do you read? Mysteries, stories set in the early Egyptian era and the Camelot/Merlin tales.
• What do you love most about writing? What do you not like? What I love is seeing a story form and take on a life of its own. I dislike editing. After allowing well-meaning people to do an edit, I found everyone has a different opinion of “proper grammar”. I just hire a woman. She understands what I want.
• Do you have a favorite place to write? In my family room, in front of a blazing fireplace, my dog at my side. I have a very nice writing room, but I don’t write there.
A Little on the Professional Side:
• Where do you draw your inspiration from? I actually dream many of my stories. The ones I try to make up are harder to write.
• Of all of the characters you have written, which has been your favorite? Why? Least favorite? Why? My favorite was Carmy and Sid, my angels on an Ever-lasting love assignment in the “Trouble With Angels”. They were such fun to create. My least, Tomas in “The Space Between”. The man had no redeeming qualities.
• How do you connect with your readers? (book clubs, online chats, etc) Facebook is my most active. I do many local book signings. I love talking to the people.
A Little Quick Fire:

Fiction or Non-Fiction? Fiction mainly, but I love to read about the history of a person or event.
