Interview with Barb Jones

How do you approach cover design?
I have a great illustrator that I've been working with. I actually tell Steven about the book and let his imagination take flight. Of course, there are edits and touchups but if you have the right artist, it's as if both you and he can see the same thing. Steven doesn't even have to read the books to bring the characters to life!
What are your five favorite books, and why?
I love all the books written by Chris Kuzneski. I have read each and every one. Another favorite author is Lee Child. There's just something about thrillers that excites me and sparks my passion for reading more.
What do you read for pleasure?
Mostly thrillers. But then, there are some historical fiction novels that I just can't put down.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I prefer to read off of Kindle. I think that is because kindle can be on the computer, my iPad, iPhone and more. I like the flexible to go to any device with it.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When I am not writing, I'm either working, spending time with my family, playing tennis, doing something active or daydreaming about the next thing to write.
