Interview with Katie Jaymes

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in the English countryside, and I have very early memories of winter sunsets, bare trees, stone walls, and graveyards. I think that this is why I lean towards the slightly supernatural, slightly ethereal, darker type of stuff. The sex is just me...
Who are your favorite authors?
I grew up reading Stephen king and Dean Koontz, so I have a soft spot for them, also Mary Shelley and Poe, of course.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The plot unravelling as you type, not knowing what it will be, but discovering it as it is uncovered.
What's the story behind your latest book?
It's about making a new start and finding new opportunities, really...and taking them. Throwing yourself in at the deep end and taking it from there!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Eating, drinking, housework, gardening, sex.. did I mention drinking?
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
All the work I have to do! But also the day itself is a new book, waiting to be written. How corny is that!
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I just really wanted to try it to see if I am any good at it, maybe you can let me know!
What do your fans mean to you?
It means the world to me that anyone would take time out to read my stuff, anyone that gives me a boost or a bit of positive (or negative, for that matter!) feedback really makes a difference to my little world!
What are you working on next?
I've nearly finished another ghostly/paranormal adventure, (erotic of course!) involving two cousins and some mysterious people...
Describe your desk
My desk is a mess, there are rumours of large spiders and dead things that sometimes awake at night, and come out to steal apple-cores. Seriously, it's a mess..
