Interview with Jea Hawkins

Published 2018-04-11.
What is your writing process?
Well, it involves a great deal of "AH HA! YES!" followed by enthusiastic jotting down of the idea, plotting, and the inevitable flailing about midway through a story. ;)
How do you approach cover design?
I simply go to my cover artist and say, "Make it lovely!" She's a genius. <3
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Gaming, gardening and genealogy (all the Gs!).
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Not the first story I ever read, so much as the first one that made me a reader for life, and that was "Nancy Drew & the Secret of the Old Clock" when I was 9-years-old. Nancy was my only female role model throughout my childhood, and she inspired me with her self-sufficiency, courage, and intelligence. Still does, too!
What do you read for pleasure?
Mainly, steampunk/quirky fantasy, urban fantasy, paranormal romance, and romance, in that order.
