Amarinda Jones

Average Rating:

Amarinda Jones believes anything is possible, and that sometimes just asking for the impossible will surprise someone enough that they will give it to you. Writing is like that. Put it out there and wait for a response. There is always the possibility you may fall on your ass, but after all, that's what cellulite is for. Amarinda believes in taking chances, speaking her mind and aging disgracefully. Twenty years from now, she plans on being the neighborhood witch that all the kids are scared of. But then, everyone has to have a hobby.

Q: If you could meet any famous figure in history, who would it be?

A: Queen Elizabeth the first, as she was the quintessential strong woman who ruled England in a dangerous time, despite the odds and male opinion.

Q: If you had a choice between writing and chocolate, which would you choose?

A: That’s a no brainer. Chocolate — it’s my muse — without it, I am a cranky writer. No one wants that.

Q: Who inspires you to write?

A: Everyday people. I get my stories from life, the workplace and the shopping mall. I want to read about average people shoved into extraordinary circumstances.

Q: How hard is sex to write?

A: Very hard and very much a mood thing. Sometimes it comes in a rush, and other times, it’s a long drawn out process…like real life, really.

Q: Name five things on your desk.

A: Hmm, I don’t have a desk, I’m camped out on the dining room table. No one gets to eat there – but – nail polish, mobile phone, money frog, hair clip and oh yeah, the computer thingy.

Q: Is your hero anyone you know?

A: Yes – though not as aggravating but definitely as sexy.

Q: Why write smart ass heroines?

A: Because I like people with attitude, and frankly, the hero needs to be aware he is damn lucky to have the heroine.

Q: If aliens landed and asked you to explain your writing style, what would you say?

A: I would actually get exclusive rights to their story and then hit the media outlets and make money from them. Hey – I’m not silly.

Q: If you could be anyone on the planet, who would you be?

A: Me…I’m an original.

Q: Finish this sentence: "I think, therefore I am. I write, therefore…”

A: “…I have bloodshot eyes and a chocolate hangover.”

Q: What’s your favorite genre to write?

A: I chop and change. I don’t believe in limiting myself to one thing. Life is short. Be flexible and be aware of the market.

Q: What’s the worst review you ever got?

A: I believe ‘she sucks’ was in the second paragraph. I just thanked the reviewer politely, mainly to confuse her.

Q: To get a book published you have to…?

A: Persevere, have a thick skin and a deep belief in yourself.
