Cover Release and Interview with J.A. Culican
Today my blog is being visited by Young Adult fantasy writer J.A. Culican, whose book The Keeper of Dragons: The Prince Returns, just got a reboot with a new cover. I thought I’d pick her brain and offer up her answers here on my site, so read on!
1. Give us your stalking deets – where people can find you online . . .
2. What inspired you to write your first book?
My kids! They love all things magical.
3. Do you have a specific writing style and do people compare you to someone, and if so, who?
I get Robert Jordan a lot! Which to be compared to any other author is a huge compliment in itself, but to be compared to him!!!! OMG!
4. Is there anything you find particularly challenging in your writing?
TIME! I work full time as a teacher and have four young children.
5. Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
J.K. Rowling for sure! You can get lost in her books. She makes it so you feel as though you right there a part of the story.
6. Playlist? Do you have one?
I do. I always have it playing in the background as I write. One Republic, The Fray, 30 Seconds to Mars, Adele…I am all over the place.
7. What book(s) are you reading right now?
I just finished A Bond of Venom and Magic by, Karen Tomlinson. I was actually gifted an arc…and it was AMAZING! Comes out October 12th.
