The wonderfully talented J. Meyers (author of Intangible) was kind enough to answer a few questions for us, guys!
|J. Meyers Website|
I am an artist, mother, wife, friend, sister, and daughter. My favorite people in this world are my husband and kids, and I can't imagine a better life than the one I'm living. :-)
2-What is your favorite part of being an author?
Connecting with readers. It's been an amazing experience to have people reading my book and loving it. A-MAZ-ING. And I'm in touch with people all over the world, which quite honestly blows me away. Today I was emailing with someone I've never met who lives in Germany and I was struck with how utterly cool that is. How incredibly small the internet has made our world, that I can chat with someone across the country or in another country on the other side of the globe.
3-If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go & why?
Everywhere. We're an unschooling family, and I have this (quite unrealistic) dream that we could travel the world, introducing our kids to people, cultures, places that they've learned about so they could experience it for themselves. Like they could stand in the ruins of the Colosseum in Rome, and understand that people once stood in that same place almost 2000 years ago when it was new. It would be a truly amazing education.
4-Will there be a sequel to Intangible? If so, when can we expect it?
YES! I'm just getting started on it now and hope it will be ready by the end of the year. (Fingers crossed!)
5-Are any of your characters modeled after people you know?
Not really. There are certainly traits that my characters may share with people in my life, just as there are traits they share with me, but there is no one character modeled after any one person. They are each individual creations.
6-What is the best book you've read so far this year?
I haven't read much this year because January was spent in a whirlwind of getting everything ready for the book release at the end of the month. But I did just get a stack of books from the library the other week, and have already read a few of them. I finally got to read The Daughter of Smoke & Bone by Laini Taylor, and really liked it a lot. She writes so beautifully.
Thanks so much, Mel! It's been a real pleasure. :-)
Thank you so very much for taking the time to talk with me!
