Smashwords Interview

how long have you been a writer?
I have been writing since I was nine-years-old. I pinned my first story in the third grade and called it "The Pin." It was a hand-written 25-page book, but it won first place. When I saw how much my teacher and my class mates loved the story, I knew this was what I wanted to do. I write because I love it. Nothing inspires me more than my writing partner, Jerriann. She has enough grit to keep me sane, when my mind goes blank; she sees into the minds of our characters.
As an Author what does writing mean to you?
Simply put I love to write and create a theme that is enjoyable to read. Nothing gives me more joy than to write a great story or pinning some of the most controversial poetry ever written, and this is just one side of mine, and Jerriann's poetry. On the other hand, we have a soft side as well. We write about anything: from the beauty of a flower to the colonization on the moon. We strive to express our feelings in what we write.

Smashwords book reviews by JD Couch

  • Ignatius Ignoramus, The Ill-Fated on Sep. 20, 2012

    this is a very funny and amusing story, and I must say I about laughed my head off and this story I know took a lot of hard work and dedication, on writing a comedy and Jerriann did it perfectly I gave it five stars and it was well deserved. Author JD Couch.
  • Dead Man's Fingers on Sep. 27, 2012

    Jerriann Law has done a brilliant job with this work of Fiction. It keeps you turning the pages, with a plot and story line unlike anything I've ever read. The Characters are well crafted and it is an over-all well put together horror story. I'd recommend this story to anyone looking for a scary read that offers more than just a scream-fest; this story has some unusual twists. Author JD Couch
  • Red Slippers on Sep. 27, 2012

    Jerriann Wayahowl Law pieced together a fine work of fiction in Red Slippers; a bit of a Ghost Story with just a hint of a thriller telling three different perspectives over a simple pair of shoes setting on a porch. This is truly worth reading; if you love a great suspense story then Red Slippers is the story for you. I gave it a well deserved 5 Stars, Author JD Couch.
  • A Steampunk Valentine on April 26, 2013

    A number of stories and poetry within, all written with a shared enthusiasm about steampunk; and the authors range from first-timers to some who know the genre well. I found the best stories later in the book, although a couple had typos. I rate this four stars, because it had so many authors that to give it 3 stars over all would be unfair, I think. It was considerate of the publisher to include all the entries, since some authors admitted to being their first story ever. Thanks for the free copy...if you're not aware of how fun steampunk can be, this collection will certainly show you it can be quite delightful.
  • Trick or Treat on Nov. 09, 2015

    Trick or treat is the type of short story that you wish would never end.Rosemary J Peel has written a great short story that is a bit sad at the end, and the ghost children made a great friend in Evie, who found out that she wasn't the only ghost out that Halloween this is truly a great story, and Mrs Peel told it well thanks for a great read. Thanks Author JD Couch (11-9-2015)
