**AUTHOR PEEK** Interview with Author, JODI VAUGHN

Before we get started talking about your writing, tell us a little about yourself, where you’re from, what you do for a living (if you’re not a fulltime writer) what hobbies you have, etc. Whatever you’d like to share.

I am originally from Mississippi but currently reside in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Before I became a full time writer I was a nurse. When I’m not writing, I’m reading. I also love going for family walks with my husband and son.

1. How did you get started writing?

I went to a one day workshop featuring Jodi Thomas. I had the chance to speak with her and she encouraged me to start writing. I always wanted to write, I just needed that encouragement.

2. What genre(s) do you write in and why?

I write paranormal and contemporary romance.

3. What is your favorite part of writing?

I am a character driven writer. I love meeting my characters and joining them for their journey in the stories.

4. What is your least favorite part of writing?

Edits.

5. Where do you get the ideas for your stories?

Sometimes I get my ideas from dreams, sometimes they just come to me while I’m driving. I love to brainstorm while I’m driving.

6. What is your typical day like?

I usually get up at 5:30 to drink coffee and look over what I’ve got to do for the day. After getting my son to school, I exercise. I get to my desk around 9:00 and start writing. I try to   write or edit until lunch. After lunch I’ll get back to writing until 2:30. I pick up my son, do homework and work on dinner. I try not to write once my husband and son are home, but if I’m on deadline or haven’t met my goals, I’ll finish up.

7. What is most difficult for you to write?  Characters, conflict or emotions? Why?

Emotions are hard for me to write. It’s hard to transfer that visual reaction.

8. Tell us about your next book & when is it being published?

Veiled Enchantment is the second book in the Veiled trilogy. It will be out next year.
