Interview with Jamie Campbell

Published 2018-11-19.
What is your writing process?
It all starts with a tiny idea that pops into my head. This can be from an overheard conversation, a question, or just some random stray thought that comes to me.
Once I have the idea, I flesh it out with characters and twists and story until it unravels into something I can't wait to write. Then I get started.
What do you read for pleasure?
I love all kinds of books. Mostly it's from the YA selection, but I occasionally really enjoy a thriller or murder mystery for the older readers. If there is an epic plot twist, it makes it even sweeter.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I love my Kindle!
When did you first start writing?
I've always loved it since I was a kid. But I started to take is seriously when I had my "Quarter-Life Crisis" at 25. That's when the writing bug took hold of me and hasn't let me go since.
What is the first book that made you cry?
Harry Potter. I think you can tell what part of it brought me to tears. No spoilers here.
What is the one thing you want your readers to know about your books?
That in every book is a piece of my heart and soul. I pour everything I've got into making the best book possible and I love being able to share these stories with the readers.
Who’s your book boyfriend or secret book crush?
Four from Divergent. I loved him before seeing the movie and I love him even more after seeing how he was cast.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Hearing from my readers. I love it when they completely "get" what I was trying to do with a story. It feels like it was all worth it, even just for that one person to understand what I was saying.
What is your writing Kryptonite?
Distractions. My dog might be too cute to refuse a cuddle, my husband might need to tell me something that can't wait, I might just quickly want to check a fact on Google (which then turns into two hours). It's a struggle to stay focused sometimes.
What drives you to keep on writing?
I don't know how to stop. The stories keep coming, the characters speak with me even if I don't want to listen. It's in my blood, I have to write.
What do your fans mean to you?
They mean the world to me. As a writer, I want to share my stories with the universe. It's the readers that I do everything for and can't wait to share my latest releases with. Each and every one of my readers are awesome.
