Interview with AJ Summer
Describe your desk
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
In a small town in South Africa - known for its ghost stories...
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Getting lost in another world - giving life to my characters.
Watching them grow, conquering their challenges, falling in love.
What do your fans mean to you?
It's the most amazing feeling ever, when a fan contacts you and tells you, they loved your writing.
That makes all the sleepless nights, lost family time and dirty dishes, worth it!
What are you working on next?
RUNNER - my second book in my Tainted Hearts series.
It continues Kyle's story, and brings us one step closer to his elusive happy ending.
Who are your favorite authors?
Megan Keith - Indie Author from Australia.
Her dark novella ERASER is my favourite read!
Laramie Briscoe, Katija O, Kristine Raymond all brilliant indie authors.
S.C. Stephens, Jamie McGuire, Carmen Jenner, Rachel Van Dyken, Mia Asher, H.M Ward, Penelope Douglas...I have loads more!
Why do you write?
Do you hear voices in your head? Do you answer them? Do you argue with them?
Yeah? ME TOO! ALL THE TIME!!
So I write, or I'll go insane. There's always a story brewing inside my head.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I have a day job, so yeah, I kind of do that.
And I spend time with my three kids and my husband, they take up pretty much any free time I have.
When they are all asleep, I write.
How do you approach cover design?
Easy, I have an amazing cover designer.
Kari Ayasha from Cover to Cover Designs does all the hard work for me :)
When did you first start writing?
I've been writing poems since I can remember.
My mom has a story I wrote in primary school, riddled with spelling mistakes!
It was about a little mouse called "PIP"
