J A Fleming


JA Fleming makes her home in southern Louisiana. With a laugh, she describes herself as a lily– white redneck southern woman.

A teller of stories and a heroine of elaborate imaginary games when she was a child, Fleming began to put stories on paper in middle school. She started by transcribing tales her father wove for her and her sisters while on long car rides – tales that were scary but with “funny” endings. When she was sixteen she wrote the first lines of what would become the debut series she’d share with the reading world, Curse of Royalty.

Graphic designer by day, writer by night, Fleming says she’s single – a fact she is convinced allows her to sleep late and most importantly, allows her the time and energy needed to focus on writing and other hobbies like needlecrafts, sculpture, drawing, and painting. With a love of story that makes it difficult to turn a TV off, Fleming revealed that she doesn’t have cable or internet services at her home – a choice she credits with freeing up time to write, although, she admits, she still spends plenty of hours in front of the “time-sucking black hole.”

A few of Fleming’s favorite authors: Laura Lond, Chris Fabry, Louis L’Amour, Jerry B. Jenkins, Timothy Gautreaux, Jane Austin, Ted Dekker, JRR Tolkien, Frank Peretti, CS Lewis.

Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
Well, right now I'm a debut author and don't have a fan base. Readers are very important to me now that I've decided that I want to share what I've spent untold hours crafting. I hope they know how much I value them and their feedback - LOVE to hear from readers.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I enjoy the escape of writing. Hours disappear as I craft stories; pots boil over as I develop characters; laundry waits while I slip into the world I'm creating. And of course, there's the joy of sharing the story with others and having them enjoy it. I'm thankful God's given me both the talent and the outlet of writing.
