Our Authors Interview

Let’s get you introduced to everyone, shall we?!

My name is Jana O’Dell. I am married to the most amazing woman in the world and have three wonderful children. I live in West Virginia, USA and also have a host of fur babies (1 dog, 1 cat, 7 bunnies).

 What prompted you to pursue a career as a writer?

I wanted to help bring light to those who suffer with mental illness. Knowing other people are feeling the same way as you is sometimes very helpful in coping with your own struggles.

 Do you have any special writing habits?

I do not follow any form of “tradition” writing forms. I write what I feel in whatever way it flows out.

 When you write a new book, do you already have the whole story in mind or do you elaborate it along the way?

I just wing it in all honesty. Typically I have no idea what I am doing. I just start writing and play the words as a movie in my head and it all just ends up flowing.

In your opinion what is the best book you have written? What’s your favourite book ever?

I personally enjoy my poems in Cyanide Kisses, as they were my first stab at writing for the outside world. My favorite book ever is probably ‘The Complete Tales of EA Poe’. I am a total Poe addict.

 How do you feel after writing a book?

I feel nervous at how others may perceive my work, scared of how family and friends may look at me differently, yet calm and hopeful in thinking of those who I may help along the way.

 Do you have a new release? When? We want details.

Yes! I actually have TWO new books coming. The first is called “Her Scars Are Made Of Glass” and it should be available by the end of September 2020 on Amazon for Kindle and Paperback. It is my first non-poetry book so I am terrified and excited at the same time. My second book coming soon is called “Magic in the Madness” and is my third poetry collection. It should be available October 31st 2020.
