Look who we have here this afternoon? It's JC Morrows, the author of A Reluctant Assassin, book 1 of The Order of the MoonStone series. Did you see my review earlier today? For my review of A Reluctant Assassin, click here.
Now, let's welcome JC. Well, since we're both JCs, I think I'll initial her dialogue as JCM.
JCM: I've been telling stories since before I can remember. My mother inspired me to finish the first novel in my Andarii series nearly three years ago. It was her birthday present that year.
JCM: I am currently working on a future book in my current series (Order of the MoonStone) - and a dystopian series, but I can't say any more about that yet.
JCM: Names are extremely important, but I rarely get to choose them. If you are an author, you will understand how quickly a character can take on a life all their own. When that happens, they will tell me their name. And sometimes characters walk into the story fully formed and I don't even have to ask their name. I just know it.
JCM: Oh my word. There are far too many to name. Although I will say that my Master and Creator - my Heavenly Father - inspires my writing more than any one person could.
JCM: I was actually going to answer this differently until I realized that history has, in fact, had a strong influence on my writing. I've always joked that I was born in the wrong century. Obviously God knew what He was doing when He allowed me to be born in this century, but I have always felt a tie to the past . . . mostly the Victorian and Edwardian era.
JCM: This series has actually been a different journey than any other I've written. God inspired the entire series. I was working on something completely different and it was not going well at all so I asked God what He wanted me to write - and the story simply exploded in my imagination. It has been an amazing journey!
JCM: Honestly, I'm not convinced that Hollywood could do the series justice or that they would want to make it . . . just the way it is. And I would want far too much control for anyone to be happy, so I don't see a movie coming anytime soon, but I did an entire series on my blog - where I found pictures of actors and actresses who look most like my characters.

JCM: My hobbies include reading, swimming, taking long walks and playing board games with the kiddos. Writing, at least for me, is most definitely not a hobby, but a full time job.
