Interview with JB Ferreira III

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, It was a fiction book and my teacher was not a fiction reader ... lol
What is your writing process?
I will first get a basic line of the story... I don't sit down a day and say " today i'm going to write 20 pages/chapter 1. I will write a couple of pages and a lot of the time i will go back read it again and make some changes necessary. I do research while I'm writing in using correct word for timeline in the book. my Publisher even pointed out a few and said that it was wrong. But after she looked it up, she changed her view. None of my books is a quickly written book. My first one took 9 months to complete. Second one is finished and will be released next year.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?

recently...2015
What's the story behind your latest book?
This discussion happened on a cold winters night around a camp fire with my friends.
What motivated you to become an author?
My friends request
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Telling people your version of the story... There can't be a wrong or right one .. only my version. So you can like it or you don't... the same as a movie. IF you are reading a book and want to correct the writer the whole time, then you reading for the wrong purpose. The writer is telling you his story .. his vision.
