Smashwords Interview

Natalie Jayne, tell us some of the 'nuts and bolts'.
Ah, so you'd be wanting to know about 'Volume 1: The Early Years'? Sorry, I try not to make the eyes of innocent bystanders glaze over before we're properly introduced. Here's a few resume type facts, though, for those with nothing better to do while the tea kettle comes to a boil.

-M.A. Education
-Tech Cert American Sign Language Interpreting
-B.A. Studio Art
-A.A Art
-moved roughly 30 times in 40 years (and I'm not in the military)
-Work: there's been a few, but the most unusual were hand-loading commercial aircraft and training to be a wildland firefighter
-Least interesting work: providing daily gravitational support to a free-standing traffic control device (The stop sign just did not seem to appreciate my efforts.)
What’s it like being an author with learning differences?
Colorful! That's the first thing that comes to mind. It's very, very colorful. Thinking in such a visual-spatial way is an incredible gift-- granted one that comes double edged, but a beautiful gift nonetheless. The Rivers stories come to me like scenes in a movie. All I have to do is roll the film and enjoy the show. I can freeze the frame and take a mental stroll through the scene seeing, hearing and touching as my characters would. It's rather like daydreaming on double-shot espresso. Honestly, I cannot imagine how I would write without being visual-spatial, it's such an integral part of how I function. Rather than a mapped out, linear outline-- every aspect, every character trait, is linked one to another like a massive web. Shifting one junction naturally pulls on another; there are things that just 'feel' right or obvious to the plot or character development. The only downside is my creative spelling and tendency to write drafts in one long gully washer bereft of full stops, paragraphs, or commas. The red-marks on my typing blend quite nicely with the red marks that spring forth every time Gideon has any dialogue whatsoever, which can make editing a mite tricky.

2 hired thugs, 1 sheriff, 2 unlikely friends, 1 court appointed nuisance-- what could possibly go wrong? This humorous adventure is about the bonds between brothers-- even unintentional ones-- & the many hiccups of life. INDEBTED is a 'clean' read. Except for Gideon, who can ruin a new set of clothes in 3 sec. flat, pinch the blue ribbon prize & still skid calamitously into town by supper.

    A delightful student-written short story. I was impressed by this young writer's breadth of vocabulary and her effort at building suspense. As a language arts instructor, I would definitely give you high marks my dear! As a custom publisher, I hope you are in love with writing and continue to polish your craft! Well done.
