Interview with Ingrid Jennings

Do you title the book first or wait until after it’s complete?

I like to title my book first. I usually come up with an idea then I try to bring that idea to life.

What book are you reading now?

The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

What books are in your to read pile?

I have just purchased Gabriel's Rapture by Sylvain Reynard but I havn't had the chance to begin it. I also plan of reading: The Bone Bed by Patricia Cornwell and Alex Cross before the year is over.

What is your current “work in progress” or upcoming projects?

I am currently working on an novel that takes place in New Orleans. It is a mystery and it will also have some voodoo in it.

Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?

 I have a very busy life therefore actually finding the time to write is challenging.

Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?

I love Charlaine Harris, I have fell in love with her Sookie Stackhouse characters.

Who designed the cover of your latest book?

Gaelyn Larrick

Do you have any advice for other writers?

Do not worry about what other people have to say about what you write, write from the heart and because you love it and everything else will fall in place.
