Interview with Jo Hollywood

When did you first start writing?
My love of writing started from when I was a little girl. I've always jotted down stories in various notebooks.
Describe your desk
Do I have a desk? Haha. Well, I usually write on the dinning room table surrounded by Lego and Minecraft figures! Anywhere I can place my laptop is fine by me.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The story of An Unextraordinary Life has been slowly brewing away for years. I wanted to tell a romantic story about true love and serendipity.
What are you working on next?
I am curently working on a romantic thriller which should be available by the end of the year.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I have two little boys, so they are pretty inspiring, and wake me up!
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Housework, being a mum and drinking lots of coffee!
What is your writing process?
I really don't have a set process or plan. I have a rough idea in my head of where the story is heading and how it will end. But, other than that, I often allow the characters to tell their own story and see where it takes me.
What do you read for pleasure?
I love Nordic Noir, plus all types of romance.
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I just love my kindle!
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy? I suppose it would have to be seeing my characters come to life.
