As part of the blog tour hosted by The Teen Book Scene Jaime Reed, author of Living Violet has stopped by for a short interview
What was the inspiration for Living Violet?
Life, friends, family, movies, and everything else in between. It’s like a salad of everything I know and love about the supernatural, but I wanted to make it relatable and apply characters with common sense.
Where is your favorite place to read/write?
In my bed. That way when I pass out from exhaustion, I have a soft landing.
Did you draw from people in real life to create your characters?
Sure did! I have a lot of friends and family in my characters. They have a fun time to guess who is who. It’s a good combination with a lot of creative input. They laugh whenever a character does something they would do though.
What's your favorite genre to write and why?
Paranormal. At least it’s my favorite right now. I love writing about the unknown. The normal every day thing is so boring and uneventful. I should know. I live there.
If you could be any supernatural/paranormal creature/being what would it be and why?
A shape- shifter. I think it would be cool to turn into other animals or even other people. The only bad part is I would have to carry a change of clothes with me wherever I went.
Thanks for stopping by Jaime! And if you guys haven't checked out her novel Living Violet yet you should.
