Dominic Jericho

Biography

Dominic Jericho is a writer of young adult fiction. He's been writing stories since before he was a teen himself. He started with a pencil on a scruffy notepad before rapidly buying up multiple packs of empty exercise books so he could fill them with ideas, lists, concepts and illustrations. He now writes all his novels on a shiny new laptop, which unfortunately has the annoying distraction of an internet connection.Dominic lives in the South East of England.

Smashwords Interview

How do you deal with writer’s block?
I try to keep going, even when I feel like I don't want to write. It's only when I'm literally spewing out rubbish that I stop. It's important to write regularly, it's like a muscle you need to keep fit. Sometimes it's impossible to write - like when you are going through a particularly stressful period. Then, you just have to accept it and know that your stressful experience will eventually be ripe for writing about.
What’s the best thing about being a writer?
Writing can be painful and joyful in equal measure, but I think the best thing is when you write a really satisfying sentence, that articulates with precision a concept or an idea, and flows like poetry across the page. Or when a reader tells you they were moved by your work. That's happened a few times, and it always makes my day.
