Tell us about you. What are some of your previously published projects?
I’m a military spouse and I have one daughter. I live in Florida right now, but don’t plan to stay permanently. I have four novels that are Young Adult or New Adult Romance. Deep Breath is my first novella.
When did you start writing? When did you start publishing? What is the hardest thing about writing?
I started writing my first novel at the end of 2009. After querying a couple of projects, I finally decided to self-publish at the end of 2012. The hardest part of writing used to be research because it’s time consuming. Now, since I’m an Indie, I think the hardest part of writing is publishing. Writing is the easy part; everything that follows takes more work.
What has been your favorite character that you’ve written so far?
Oh, wow. I think my male MC from The Line That Binds series is my favorite. He was my first attempt at writing first-person male and I had a lot of fun creating him.
Where does your inspiration come from? What do you do to break through a block?
Inspiration can come from anywhere. Music is a big one for me. I’m a lyric lover. If I’m stuck with whatever I’m working on, I’ll read, watch a movie, or listen to some music. It usually helps.
Has there been a progression through genres with your writing, or do you mostly stick with one genre?
I’ve stuck with YA and Na categories so far, but with genre, I jump around—Coming of Age, Paranormal Romance, Contemporary Romance, Romantic Suspense.
Watch for Part Two of my interview with J.M. Miller on Tuesday, June 16, 2015.
PreOrder the AWESOMENESS here.
Before disappearing at sea, Marissa Pruitt’s father—a once revered marine archaeologist—walked the line of insanity, claiming to have seen a mermaid during an ordinary dive in the Gulf of Mexico. He abandoned his life and career, completely obsessed with chasing the truth.
It’s been years since his death, and Marissa is still tormented by countless unanswered questions. When she finds dive coordinates and a stone pendant hidden in her father’s things, she asks for help from his old protégé and sets out to give her father one last goodbye and maybe find closure for her troubled heart. Instead, she finds the truth he’d been searching for all along, with a life and love she never could have imagined. But there’s a price to see it all, one set by betrayal and paid with an anchor at her feet and salt water in her lungs.
