Jolie Jaquinta

Biography

I first started writing in the same APA that Charles Stross and Jo Walton were part of. Unfortunately for my writing, I got a job and developed a career. This did not deter me, but it did sap the time I had for the endless self-promotion and courting of publishers that is necessary to be printed these days. I have awaited for the new day dawning, where we can throw off the shackles of the requirements for print publication, and let our thoughts flow as free as electrons in a new digital world. All the works I've breathed life into over the years now have soil to spring forth from!

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
When I was in Middle School decided to take a creative writing project to extremes. He wrote a 30 page science fantasy story and I wrote a 14 page poem about an epic sea voyage. I was kind of nervous when I got a "see me" note on my paper, but it was because the teacher was confused that two such mediocre students suddenly excelled. He went on to become musician and Goth icon Sam Rosenthal, while I'm now self-publishing my new works.
What is your writing process?
I don't write books so much as build worlds. They often come, Athena like, full grown into my consciousness, And any given world has its stories to tell. Far more than I have time to fully write. For every story I publish I usually have another three or so more fleshed out and begging for time. I can't choose. I want to write them all! Normally I let my reader's interest drive which get developed next.
