Woo hoo!

I’m so excited to be spotlighting the twelfth special guest for The Twelve Writers of Christmas Facebook Party!

Meet J.A.

Jacqueline Patterson.jpgJ.A. Patterson wrote her first book at the age of five: the tale of an assassin hen on the trail of a crafty fox. (OK, so the story wasn’t that epic, but that hen was mean. ?) That first story hooked her, and she hasn’t stopped since. She is currently editing Primate, the first book in her Forever in Time series, in the hope of publication. . .if she can ever convince herself that she’s found the perfect draft.

Talk about books, and she will be your friend forever.

You can connect with her on her website, Twitter, and Instagram


Let’s Chat!

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

Intense. Addicted. Dreamer.

-What’s the best thing about being a writer?

The opportunity to open your reader’s eyes to the world that exists —or may not exist— around them. We all want to be a kid again. We want a chance to lose ourselves in our imaginations, to reach through the realm of adulthood and simply dream again. As a writer, I can become anything.

-Writers just might have some of the best jobs. Ever. How has your spiritual walk influenced your writing?

I began writing Primate during a time when I strongly questioned my faith, and I carried that search into Taslor’s questions and quests and fears. I knew God was out there, I knew we would not be here without a Creator, but did He really care about my existence? Did my life matter? Writing Primate scarred me in so many ways. . .and yet it also healed me.

-I have found it amazing how the stories God puts in our hearts, heal us in ways we don’t expect. If you had the ability to jump into any story and live there for a week, what book would you choose?

The Annals of Imperial Rome by Tacitus, because I am a total Ancient Rome freak. Of course, once I’m there, I would end up in an anti-Nero uprising that would change the course of history. I always have to shake things up a bit. 😉

– Talk about awesome! Thanks for chatting with me today, Jacqueline! So excited to have you as one of the special guest’s for the event!

Jacqueline will be chatting from 9:45-10:00 EST. Wonder what she is going to talk about?

You’ll have to stop by the party on December 12th to find out!
