Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.
Hi, I’m AJ Renee. I’m a mom, air force wife, WoW nerd, and a goofball in general.
When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?
The first book in the series is always the hardest. By the time you finish it you’ve fallen in love with the secondary characters and become eager to learn more about them.
When writing a series how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?
In the case of my St. Fleur series I had to make sure each of their conflicts was unique to the characters. If it’s not I lose not only the readers interest by my own. No one wants to read a boring, repetitive book let alone write it.
Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?
Take your time. Sometimes walking away is the best thing you can do until the fog clears.
On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing?
Three to four hours on a normal writing day, sometimes more.
Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.
Picking a favorite character is like picking a favorite child! All of my characters are special to me.
If any of your books were to be made into a movie, who are the celebrities that would star in it? What book and who?
Hmmm… I always have a hard time with this question. What about Not Playing fair and Henry Cavill and Jessica Mas.
What is your definition of success?
I’ll let you know when I finally define it for myself. Ha!
