Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
Beth M James. I’m an author who writes novels based on strong characters, lessons learned, and elements of romance. I write contemporary, fantasy, and mystery. When I’m not writing, I like to spend time with family and friends, take walks, jigsaw puzzles, and spend time at our tiny home up north.
What are you favorite things about attending signings?
I love meeting people. I’ve met some great and interesting people at signings, both readers and other authors. I always learn something new whenever I attend.
What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?
I would have loved to met Kathleen E Woodiwiss. She was the one to hook me on romances.
When you are writing, do you have a consistent schedule where you write every day at the same time or are you a sit and go on different days to get it done kinda person?
I’ve learned to be flexible when and where I write since I also have a full-time job. I’ve created first drafts during lunch breaks, I’ve worked on edits in our RV while traveling on the road, and I’ve created stories while sitting on a chair in the middle of the driveway at our tiny home. When at home, I’ll write in the evenings and weekends. I have an office where I’ll sit at my desk or sit on the floor with my back against the couch.
What is your favorite memory so far as an author?
My favorite memory is being interviewed for an article in Time Magazine about writers and self-publishing. I was just starting out at the time and researching how to self-publish. The interview was by phone, and we talked for an hour. When the article came out, I was so excited to see my name in Time Magazine. How cool is that!
Do you have a book that is your most prized possession? What is it and why is it so amazing?
My prized possession is actually a manuscript for “The Fulfillment” by LaVyrle Spencer. It’s like a lucky charm, having something she created, and that keeps me motivated.
