Janie Marie Interview Part 1

If you could, please take a minute to introduce yourself to readers.
I’m Janie Marie. I live near Austin, Texas, with my husband and our three children—plus four adopted fur babies. I’m the only girl of six children. My parents each had two sons before marrying and having me then my little brother was a surprise. I remind him all the time I was supposed to be the last. Lol. I’m totally winging this author thing, but I’m happy to constantly grow as I share my life and art.

And it will in no way affect the way I think about you as a person, but what are your thoughts on coffee? Keep in mind coffee drinkers are the best people in the world. 
Haha, I don’t like it. I love the smell and have had friends give me various types, and I just don’t like it. My morning drink is always Dr Pepper.

Describe yourself in three words.
Emotional. Lazy. Superwoman. (don’t ask how that makes sense 😂)

What is the last book you read?
Ooh, I’m not a big reader. The last book I tried and failed at finishing was Midnight Sun. I so wanted to get those Twilight feels again but it didn’t mesh with me. I think I outgrew it. So I’ve been focusing on my works and not much else.

Do you support any charities or causes, and if so, what ones?
Austin Wildlife Rescue & Georgetown Animal Shelter, where I used to work.

More of this interview is coming up with a part two, where Janie Marie talks about Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf, and in a third part her writing. Don’t miss it!

Author: Janie Marie

Fantasizing about Trevor Grimm is Kylie Hood’s favorite escape from her cruel reality. So, when he asks for her help on a school project, sparks are bound to fly and her dreams are going to come true . . .

Not in this fairy tale.

No, everything changes when Kylie meets Logan Grimm, Trevor’s older cousin and a professional MMA fighter some call the Big Bad Wolf.

He’s the first person to peer under the hood she hides beneath. He’s the first person to see the signs that something is wrong. He’s the first person to give her any attention. And he’s offering to help protect her.

But Logan’s world isn’t safe. It’s dirty, exhilarating, and dangerous. It’s everything Kylie needs to stay away from.

Much of her life experiences–good and a lot of bad–are where she has chosen to draw inspiration from to create her characters and stories. It’s important to her to create the kind of characters she needs or needed at one point in time because she wanted to create something only the saddest souls would recognize as brave and strong.

Be ready for raw, emotional tales, as Janie never holds back. With her darkest thoughts she found light is still possible, that the sad girl can sometimes glow the brightest. Because she is beauty surrounded by darkness.
