Featured Interview With Elle Jaines
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I am from the UK, East of England, about 50 minutes from London. I have lived here all my life. I am a secondary school teacher by day with subject specialism in media production and film studies. I have no pets but three children who keep me very busy. I am a vegetarian and aspiring minimalist! For any HP fans I am also a Slytherin.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I started writing 5 years ago. It took me 5 years from beginning to end with this book – having a full time job and family to run does not leave a lot of time for writing! I also write the first 20,000 words by hand in a journal before I started typing it up.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I love to read YA myself and crime/thriller fiction. I have also developed a taste for non-fiction crime too thanks to Netflix and SKY Crime channel. I loved the Handmaids Tale and Testaments – read that in 5 days over Christmas!
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My new book is my first. It is called Glimmer and falls into YA fantasy/magical realism sub genre.
Blurb – 'If you believe that your thoughts are private, think again. Raegan Cole, a new Glimmer to her Vine, can see everything people are thinking, and more. Her gift propels her on an extraordinary journey to unlock her past, survive her present and shape her future'
