Are you ready to continue the revealing of the special guests at the upcoming Twelve Writers of Christmas Facebook Party on December 12th!?

I hope so because I am so excited to be introducing the fourth special guest, J.M. Hackman! I can’t wait to dive into her novel Spark this December and get to know her waffle-eating and fire-making character, Brenna.

Did I mention she’s goes to another reality? 😉

Let’s Chat!

– For those who don’t know you, can you share three words to describe yourself?

Creative, competitive, and loyal.

– Ooo! I have to admit I’m pretty competitive too. 🙂 What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Hmm. It’s hard to choose the BEST thing. I guess the simple act of creating a story with words (because let’s face it, I can’t draw!). There is such a joy in the creation of a scene and characters, letting the words transfer the imagery in my head to paper.

– I second that, friend! 😉 How has your spiritual walk influenced your writing?

My beliefs come through in any story I tell. Lately, I’ve felt a desire to use accessible words to tell my stories, language everyone understands, and to shy away from the Christian lingo I grew up using. Often, when we use “Christian-eze”, we alienate the very people we want to reach.

– I truly love this. I think that’s powerful in what you’re doing (and I could imagine touching)  If you had the ability to jump into any story and live there for a week, what book would you choose?

I waver between the Harry Potter series and The Chronicles of Narnia. I think I’d go with The Chronicles of Narnia—I’ve always wanted to meet Aslan. 🙂

– Me too! 😉 Thanks so much for chatting with me J.M.! I am thrilled to have you as one of the special guests at the party and can’t wait to chat again real soon.

*J.M. will be chatting from 8:20-8:35 PM EST. Wonder what she is going to talk about?*

You’ll have to stop by the party on December 12th to find out! 😉 (But don’t worry! It’s going to be a lot of fun!)

Before you go, be sure to check J.M.’s book online!
