My Life- 

Lives alone most of the time and enjoys the quiet and the company of her cats.  Yes, she did score a ten out of ten on the "Crazy Cat Lady Quiz."  ^,,^

Influences:

The Who, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Clive Cussler, Stephen King.

How I write:  

Hard question.  How do get I ideas? What is my routine?  I usually put in about six to eight hours a day on projects ranging from my blog, blogs I'm guesting on, articles, and of course the novels.  I am currently editing a stand alone, Magic Man; as well writing the third book in The Dead Men series, Dead Men Feel the Heat. Then there is Twitter and Facebook which take up an amazing amount of time.
 
Motivation- (why you write?) 
 
I wasn't given a choice.  I was born with the ability to take imaginary people, create their worlds and give them voices.  If I stop doing that, then their voices die and they are never allowed to breath in the real world.

Your Book-


 
Dead Men Play the Game

For a hundred years, Ian Stuart has fought the monster controlling his life. Living as a human amonghumans, he wants to fill the void that has followed him from one empty, lonely relationship to another other. Ashley Barrow is working the worst murder case in Davenport, Oregon's history. She needs a drink to forget the detailed images in her mind. When she walks into Ian's pub, Ian knows their lives are about to change, if only for a short while. Vampire and human, their relationships can only last so long. But an enemy from Ian's past has his own agenda about their future. His sadistic revenge changes Ashley forever, leaving Ian and his long time friends – Travis, Jason, Quinn and Evan -- desperate to ease her into her new life and find a way to defeat their enemy.

    1. Plan to be crazy cat lady, fairly simple: get more cats and talk to them as if they are human. I'm an expert at it. ^,,^

    1. Everyone deserves a voice. Even if it's in my head. I like writing their stories down for them.

  6. I know what you mean. If you're truly a writer, you can't not write. Your characters won't leave you alone till you do. :)

    1. I took a Dead Men break, kind of a vacation for the mind, and I've been working with other characters on a story I will never but never forget. I never forget them once they are in my head. Monday it's back to Dead Men. Travis' story.

  8. The fact that this book is published by something called Bodycount is a dead giveaway (HA!) that I'd like this book. I have a feeling it has a bit of humor in it, too. Good luck, Jacqui! (from a fellow crazy cat lady)
