Ahem. Hello? Testing… Testing… One, two, three…
1. Breakfast, everyone is dying to know, what do the English eat in the morning? It is really crumpets and tea?
AJ: Lol! Breakfast: porridge and honey with strong coffee. That'll be strange to our US pals, since I understand that where you're from there are only two types of breakfast - cardboard chunks (no calories) with water, syrup and cayenne pepper; or half a dozen fully loaded burgers with fries and a couple of litres of coca cola! ;)
My question for you is--
1. If you could choose 1 superpower for yourself, what would it be and why?
JJ: Mind control.. So then I could make everyone go out and buy our book and LOVE it!!! Muhahaha! Oh, Ahem. You meant... Right. Well, I have a lot of flying dreams... so i think that would be really cool, actually. Then I'd never be late! :)
Okay, okay… next question--
2. Superman, Spiderman or Batman? And why...? (i'm a batman girl myself. *grins* Always ALWAYS have been-no joke. Lol!)
2. Just how many children are you planning on having before you stop?!
JJ: Oh dear... But see? I just LOVE the little monsters. Really I do. It's scary I know. Well, let me think about it... 8 maybe 9 more... How many do you need these days to get your own TV show? ;)
3. Speaking of children, tell us about your family then... If you could take your kids anywhere in the world where would you take them?
AJ: Mrs C is a former ballerina and CSI and now a ballet teacher, originally from Scotland. I understand about 25% of what she says, which is the secret to our 8 years and 2 children together! The Zeds (Zac(hary) and Zara) are 4 and 3yrs old respectively; they both have masses of blond curls and exuberant outlooks. If I could take them anywhere in the world then it would probably be Disneyworld, Florida since they love all things Disney - next month we're taking them to Eurodisney.
3. What message(s) do you want to get across to the readers of your books?
JJ: That Jenni James it the greatest writer ever and all should read her books and buy her popcorn and lemons (what? I love popcorn and lemons, don't you?)... <--oh, oops. I forgot I wasn't going the mind control route. Lol! No, actually, I really want the good guys to win. Not just the cool good guys, but your average people too. I want to write books that when the reader closes it, they think about the characters and smile and giggle about them throughout their day. Something to ponder enough to wonder if sweet, feisty, wonderful heroes and heroines really do exist. I love reading a book that makes me giddy--if I can do that to my readers, then I've accomplished something. :)
4. Okay, If you could eat only one meal every day for the rest of your life, what would be on that plate?
JJ: Well, it'd have to be something healthy so I'd live longer... and it'd need to have a variety as well. I have to have variety--hmm... A-ha! (Cue imitation of AJ's accent) By Jove, I've got it! Salad. Yummy, nummy, salad. I loveth salad. So set me up with a forever freshly stocked salad bar and I'd die a happy girl. :)
AJ: Jenni's a mormon? Right, that's it, I'm leaving! Lol! Seriously though, it's generally not even relevant to what we're doing; although it can be frustrating when I'm working on promoting some of my other books, since the LDS community apparently wouldn't read them. See the answer to that previous question again though! :)
So this is the man behind Eternity everyone. Thank you so much for comin by AJ.
