Interview with J.J. James

When did you first start writing?
First started in my teens, quite a long time ago now
What's the story behind your latest book?
The latest published book is 'Murder most Funny' which started out as a six part comedy for TV. There was a few naughty words in there and the people I sent the script to disapproved, words like 'penis'...
So, I turned the script into a book, or rather a number of books. Essentially Book One is the first episode of my TV script. Eventually there will be a short book for each of my TV episodes. That's the plan, but re-writing scripts which are all dialogue, has it challenges... It keeps be busy.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I simply enjoy it... and the only boss you have is the empty page...
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Early days, but certainly has saved me a lot of work
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I do a lot of laughing when writing comedy, but then I would...
What do your fans mean to you?
I'll tell you when I get one.
What are you working on next?
As Sci-Fi novel called 'After the Rush'. It's finished, but needs a lot of polishing before it is ready for the public.
Who are your favorite authors?
Steven KIng and Bill Bryson
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
It is writing...
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
A little sailing and also feet up in front of telly with glass of wine.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
An attractive, bright cover, usually does it for me.

Book One. This extremely funny story is about the many pitfalls which may befall you when visiting the doctor’s surgery at Red Gallows Lane.
