This is definitively an upcoming author that you will want to keep your eye on!
Onto the Questions! Thank you again J. Bree for answering our questions! We really appreciate it!
Q: What got you into witting? A: I am a voracious reader and daydreamer, there has never been a time in my life that I haven’t been tinkering with an idea.
Q: What is your favorite book/series of yours? A: This question is too hard to answer because I have HUNDREDS of favorite books lol.
Q: Why write high school bully romance stories vs others? A: I had the characters in my mind for a while and the ghost of an idea and then I read three books that helped me figure it all out: the Rich Boys of Burberry Prep series by CM Stunich, The Rebel of Raleigh High by Callie Hart, and Broken Wings by Tate James and Jaymin Eve.
Q: What is your favorite character from your books? (Or another book/series) A: My favorite characters change depending on who I’m writing but if I HAD to choose I would say either Lips or Nate. They are very interesting to play with, I love the ride or die, no prisoners, cutthroat ways they both have.
Q: How did you come up with the characters from the Hannaford prep series? A: Characters always walk into my head and take it over. That’s just a part of my process, I can’t explain it lol.
Q: What is the most difficult thing about writing? About writing bully romance? A: Time is always the hardest thing. I have two under four so finding time is always hard. I have a lot of time to think thing through though so when I do finally get to sit at my laptop I can usually knock out a couple of chapters very quickly.
Q: Any recommendations for someone looking to get into writing? A: Read a lot and read critically. What do you like, what have the authors done well, what would you do differently. I ask this in every book I read.
Q: What is your favorite vacation spot? A: In my writing cave while my kids are out lol.
Q: What is your favorite food? A: Melbourne, in another life I’d live there.
Q: What is your favorite food? A: Chocolate, I’m a total whore for chocolate.
Q:What is coming next from you? A: The Butcher of the Bay Part I, Illi and Odie’s backstory. I’m very excited to share it with my readers
