Author Interview: With J.C. Mells by Aoife Marie Sheridan 


 

1.       Tell us a little about your book.

 

Book 1 in the Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance Pierced Series.  The tag line is: with characters so flawed, you’ll feel better about yourself.

 

2.       How did you come up with the title?

 

It just sort of came to me – the main character is called Pierce, she has about 20 piercings in her face, as well as Mildred and Veda Pierce (from the classic 1945 Joan Crawford movie) living in her head and guiding her every move.

 

3.       What inspired you to write this book?

 

I am such an avid reader I decided to try and write my own book. A year and a half later and I have 6 books out now – 5 in this series and 1 stand-alone Contemporary Romance.

 

4.       Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

 

There are many. Some obvious and some much more subtle. Different people get different things from it after reading it.

 

5.       Do you have a favorite line or scene from your latest release?

 

From PIERCED one of my favorites is “All I know is that Dorian was all I knew.”

From my latest release (different  genre) “My sweat looks good on you.”

 

6.       Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?

From back when I was six-ish and reading Enid Blyton books about the Secret Seven and the Famous Five (but that might be a British thing, lol)

 

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

 

 Right now it’s Tarryn Fisher. Her books absolutely blow me away – so dark and unexpected and featuring characters so screwed up and flawed that you are mesmerized from start to finish.

 

8.       What’s next for you? / What is your next project?

 

Currently writing Book 6 in the Pierced Series.

 

9.       Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?

 

That I love them all! Without their support and unwavering devotion, I might have given up this writing thing six months after I started!
