Q&A with J.A. Saare!
 Thank you for being here with us and answering a few questions!!

-How did you start writing?
I'd written things here and there in college, but never anything serious. Then, after my fourth child was born, I had an idea for a story. When I took a seat in from of the PC, I never imagined it would lead to publishing several books. Back then it was a way to have time to myself. An escape from reality if you will. It became something else entirely, which was rather shocking to me at the time.


-Where did you come up with the ideas for you book's, as J.A. Saare and Aline Hunter?
The J.A. Saare side of things was always Urban Fantasy oriented. It's one of my favorite genres. I'd already written two UF stories when I decided to write a bit of romance. Unfortunately, some readers were put off by the erotic context of the work, and I decided to create a new pen name for the "steamier" stories.  I get my ideas from all sorts of places. It can happen when I visit a historical site, or when I listen to music.

-Do you have a specific author that may have inspired you to write?
I'm a big fan of Patricia Briggs. I love her Mercy Thompson series. I would have to say that she, Kim Harrison, and Kelley Armstrong are three authors who make me want to be a better writer.

-Do you have an interesting writing quirk?
When I get in the mood, I'll shut the office door and write for hours.  Otherwise I'll jot down notes and allow my mind to rest. Sometimes the best ideas come when you're vegging in front of the television and that little light bulb goes off.


-Do you have plans for any new series as J.A. Saare?
Right now, I'm focusing on the Rhiannon's Law series (I'm writing the third book),  but I'm very anxious to return to another project: The Company of Wolves. It's been waiting patiently for me to write it, so I think when the third Rhiannon's Law book is complete, I'm going to return to the material. I also have an idea for a YA series that I might give a shot in the future.

Thanks for having me on the blog! ;-)
