Hello everyone, please welcome JoAnne Myers to Sensuous Promos today as he/she shares with us a little bit about themselves and their work.
JoAnne, thank you for joining us today. I know the readers are eager to get to know you , so let’s get started.
What does your writing desk look like? What would we find on it right this minute? (Not only is my writing desk a mess, but so is the whole room. This is my hobby room. My computer, my paints and canvases are here. Papers everywhere, dogs under my chair. Trashcan never being emptied enough, and the filing cabinet stuffed full of possible stories and a few unmentionables. Have fun with this question. If your desk is a mess, tell us! J include a picture if you’d like)
Do you have any news you’d like to share with us? I have two new books coming out. Loves, Myths, and Monsters, a fantasy anthology, will be available April by Melange Books, and Twisted Love, a biography true crime anthology is available in May 2014.
When and why did you begin writing? I have always had a knack for writing; my spelling skills are something else. Once of my teachers told me to write as a career, but I chose another route, and have always regretted it. I still hold out for the hope of writing a best seller. Stranger things have happened.
At what point did you first consider yourself a writer? When my first novel Murder Most Foul, was picked up by Melange Books. It took a lot of rewriting and searching for a publisher to find Melange.
What inspired you to write your first book? It is based on a true crime that happened in my area. Citizens still talk about the case.
How did you come up with the titles to your book(s)? I usually get the title before the book is even finished. I seem to know what I want to call the book before I start to write the book.
