Jolanthe Aleksander

Tell us your name and then a bit about yourself.

My name is Jolanthe (Jo-lawn-thay) Aleksander. I’m a mom to 1 son. I work full time and write whenever I can.

When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

The last book in a series I found to be the hardest because you want to make sure that everything is tied up, there are no open storylines that need a conclusion.

When writing a series how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

I’ve only written one series, and it was an ongoing series with the same couple as the main characters. I’ll be able to answer better when through with the new series I’m working on. 😉

Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?

Find something that takes your mind away from writing but can be just as inspiring. For some that can be reading, dancing, taking a drive to the beach, a nature walk, planting…or just vegging on the couch watch your favorite show. Sometimes we just need a mental break to recharge and reboot.

On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing?

Not enough.

Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.

Celine from my Veil series. She is fiesty, strong, and not afraid to fight back.

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?

hmmmm….the only celebrity I had in mind for my books was Brock O’Hurn. He was the inspiration for Caomhnoir.

What is your definition of success?

Finishing what you started to the best of your ability.

Do you have anything you want to share that didn’t fit on one of these questions?

What works for one author doesn’t necessarily mean it will work for another. Some have a regimented writing routine. Some squeeze their writing in between tasks. Some are plotters and others are pantsers or somewhere in between.
