Interview with S. Jessen

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes, it was a sci-fi novel for kids. It was never published. Since then - and that was in the mid 80'es - I haven't really written very much sci-fi. But lately I've launched a major sci-fi universe, spanning several series and books. It's about humans and robots, lots of robots.
What is your writing process?
I write almost every day. From 8 am to 1 pm, more or less. I think it's important to stay in the flow, when writing - but I just can't put words together after 1 pm. Believe me I've tried. So from around lunch time and the rest of the day I draw. Picture books, graphic novels and so on. Mainly for books. My own books.
How do you approach cover design?
I make my own covers, most of the time. While I write the book, I make sketches of different scenarios that have cover potential. It's just very fast pencil sketches, to catch the idea. Later I decide which one to work with and complete as cover illustration.
