Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I have started working on a Journal-3 approach to my next book, working title "My Best Friend". I have 13 Journals that I have written during the course of my life. "Janet Tallulah" is a combination of Journals 1 and Journal 2. It is detailed and personal. Journal 3 is a new approach that I am finding more interesting as a writer. I am editing my long-hand writings, adding memories from today while fleshing out characters and moments in times past. It will be a combination of past and present - who I was then with who I am now. All of that is currently evolving. I LOVE the process. It is exciting.
Who are your favorite authors?
Nelson DeMille, John Grisham, Michael Connelly, Jonathan Kellerman, John Lescourt, Elizabeth George, Donna Leon, P.D James, Martha Grimes - Good Mystery Writers, especially Legal Mysteries. I love to solve puzzles, so the British writers appeal to me rather than brutal violent stories. I really don't like horror stories or love stories. I used to, but not any more.

Actress Demo Tape - Jay W. MacIntosh
When I was acting full time, I provided a Demo of my work to casting directors, and others who needed to see my work. This was the latest Demo I put together even though it does not include Picket Fences and some other shows that I did later on. Then, I decided to go to law school and subsequently, became an Entertainment Attorney, practicing Entertainment Law. Now, 15 years later, I am getting back into the game. This is my Demo for now - until I get more work. Take a look.... Enjoy!
