Jay Elle


Author Extraordinaire in the Making...

I think that's the title I'll use for myself, for the time being at least. I've always had a passion for writing but for some odd reason didn't think I was good enough for the rest of the world to know. I always thought my writing was good and I figured if it were bad, no one else would have to know. But what if it was good? And what if others thought it was good? That would be nice. And yes, there will be folks who will think my creative thoughts are bad, and that's something I would have to deal with (I can't handle being judged). But what if other people, a lot of people, thought it was good. And these people would tell other people and those people would tell other people, and pretty soon there would be a number of people talking about something I created.

A good book is like a good movie. It's cinema for the brain, you don't see it with your eyes, you visualize it with your mind. And just like a movie, you can talk about a good book for ages. That's what I want to create, something so wonderful that three people or forty people or even five hundred people will want to talk about.

I know that may sound a little egotistic and I sincerely don't mean for it too, but when I find something I like, I like to find others who like it and talk about it. I like to immerse myself in it and hold on tight to it. And maybe there are others out there too who like to do that too.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
Um...I would have to say third grade. I remember writing a short - couple paragraphs - story about a sister who drank a potion and turned invisible. And while being invisible and out of sight, discovered that she was truly missed by her family. I can't remember how, but she became visible again and that was the end of the tale. And then when I was 14 years of age, I started writing and posting fan-fiction romance stories. It was then that I discovered I had a knack for writing. And I loved doing it. After graduating high school, I took a long break from writing anything. Dealing with "real-world problems" left me drained, stressed and unmotivated.
About two years ago, I started reading fan-fiction again. And that was the spark I needed to pick up the 'pen'.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Well I've always enjoyed writing. I like being able to take the craziness and intrigue in my imagination and put it into words. I used writing as a journal so I could always remember my thoughts or dreams. And I would be so excited and impressed that my brain came up with this 'world', that I would share it with my husband.
One day, I was having a particularly bad day. I couldn't figure out what I wanted out of life. And he suggested I become an author. I already had a passion and talent for writing, so why not make a career out of it. And that's how it began.
