Today I’m fortunate to present J.W. Garrett, author of Remeon’s Destiny.
Question 1) What part of the world do you come from?
I live in the Jacksonville, FL area, but I’m originally from Lexington, VA.
Question 2) What do you think makes a good story?
There are so many elements that need to be blended together to create a great story: fully developed characters with needs and desires, lots of conflict, and a strong emotional connection throughout the story especially.
Question 3) What inspired you to write your first book?
For as long as I can remember I’ve written, at first, poetry and short stories. Thomas, the main character in Remeon’s Destiny was inspired by my father, who also wrote poetry throughout his lifetime.
Question 4) What is your work schedule like when you’re writing?
I set a writing goal for each day and write six days a week.
Question 5) What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
My characters routinely wake me up during the night, so when that happens I write, often late into the early morning. It can make for some really long days!
Question 6) Give us the title and genre of your latest book.
Remeon’s Destiny; YA Fantasy / Sci fi. It’s the first in a series titled, Realms of Chaos.
Question 7) What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your book?
I would say how emotionally attached you become to your characters and world. It’s a little disconcerting, especially to those around you, so I’ve been told…
Question 8) Do you have an excerpt from your current work you’d like to share?
Question 9) What can we expect from you in the future?
Well, Book 2 in my YA fantasy series is in the editing process. I’ll begin plotting book 3 in the very near future.
Question 10) What was the best money you ever spent as a writer?
Editing for sure! That extra set of eyes from a different perspective is a true gift!
Question 11) How can we contact you or find out more about your books?
