Interview with Jackie Small

Published 2019-04-19.
What are you currently working on?
I'm writing more animal picture books for children aged 2-9, and I’m rewriting my children's fantasy novella 'The Perfectinians’. I’m also drawing the illustrations for my new books.
What is your most recent completed project?
I’ve had the translations for my children’s international books re-done or corrected.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything! Thank you to everyone who has bought my books. It's much appreciated.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love people reading and enjoying my books. I enjoy writing fiction because there are no limits and I can go off into my own world!
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I didn't necessarily want to go to a publisher and I didn't want to wait, so I just went for it!
Describe your desk
My desk is immaculate, but only because I do everything electronically! My iPad has apps for making notes for plots, characters and ideas, as well as research, writing and much more. It's great as I have everything I need on one device.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I love spending time with my family and going for long walks with my dogs.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I like to browse online and I get great recommendations from friends and family.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I use my iPad and read with iBooks.
