Jean Booth was born in the sweltering Vegas desert. She moved about during her childhood until returning to her roots in Northern Nevada. She's happily married with 9 cats as her children. For the entirety of her adult life she's worked in healthcare, battling insurances and poor staffing to provide great care to those who need it. Her greatest escapes are the stories found in books and in her head that she's finally decided to share.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I don't remember the first story I've ever read, but I do remember the first story that changed my life. The Count of Monte Christo. I had to read it for English class and finished it in two days. I now read it almost once a year and still love it. Before, I'd always read silly, unimportant books that just helped me to escape reality for a while. This book was the first to have me crying, laughing and cheering in excitement. It was the first book to completely bring me into another world where anything and everything was possible. It showed me that even after experiencing the worst life had to offer, with time, perseverance, patience and hard-work, dreams could come true.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love the whole process of writing. It's difficult to stake down just one aspect of writing that brings me the most joy, but it'd have to be hearing from people who've read any of my books. I love knowing what readers loved and hated from the books, how the characters talked to them, and if they felt the same as I did about my creations. That always leaves a big goofy grin plastered on my face. Don't hesitate to drop me a line, I respond and LOVE chatting with fans. :)
I wasn't thrilled with this book. It was confusing and I was lost more than I cared to be. I never became really connected with the characters. I think it has potential, but needs to be looked at further.
