My Breakfast With Jennifer DeLucy-
*In James Lipton voice* For many, many years, the fiction novel has been considered a dead artform. It is a tragic assumption as there are many talented people out there in the world who produce quality works of literature. My next guest is such an example.
Hailing from Northern Pennsylvania(a great state to hail from, btw..ehhem...),she developed an obsession with all things literary and musical thanks to the influence of an extremely creative family. Before moving to the Midwest to study English in 2002, she trained in vocal performance and had her first taste of literary work as an editor for a local social organization. Today, she works for the University of Missouri and is also a Developmental Editor for Omnific Publishing.
Ladies and Gentleman, it is my privilege to welcome to my blog, Seers of Light author...
1. Let's talk about the imagination that lurks within Jennifer DeLucy. Do your ideas come to you or do you go out searching for them?
So far, I've written about topics that I'm just inately interested in, (i.e. the supernatural, paranormal, eastern philosophy.) The great majority of the philosophy and ideas in my first book (soon to be a series) came from things that I'd absorbed and taken to heart over the years from reading and spiritual study.
2. At what point in your life did you choose the path of writing?
I've wanted to write since I was old enough to understand the concept--that and singing were my two great loves and still are. Really, I'd say my whole life so far has been a journey to do the things I love. I was born wanting to do these things.
3. What book have you read and wished "Damn, I wish I wrote that."?
Oooooh, now that is a hard one. But I'd have to go with The Five People You Meet in Heaven, by Mitch Albom. The ideas behind that novel are so inspiring and hopeful and it really leaves the reader with a sense of peace that everything has a purpose, everything will be okay.
4. Can you explain to a non-Twilight fan such as myself the appeal of the series?
HAH! The Twilight Series, huh? I think those books appeal more to women than men, anyway, but if I'm being honest, I think people tend to be more attracted to the unresolved sexual tension in the books than anything else. Not so sure they'd have been as popular as they are if the main characters had just stopped torturing themselves and done the deed.
5. How do you temper the real world with the Jennifer DeLucy world?
Good question, because it's a constant balancing act. You have to keep your head in the fantasy of a story long enough to do it justice, all the while dealing with the fact that, in real life, you can't see the end of the story, you can't control the plot yourself, and that can be disillusioning. But, family and trusted friends help with that aspect, help to keep you grounded. I do think it's important to believe in magic, though...
Thank you Ms.DeLucy, I look forward to your upcoming sequel.
My Misspent Youth...
Next post, I will be featuring yet another new series, this one entitled, Eric's Post 21-Century Dream. In it, I will be discussing my favorite living period in my life thus far, the years 1987-1991. I will put my teenage years, zits and all, to above ground exposure. It should be interesting.
