Canadian J.E. McDonald blends humor and wit with paranormal romance. Read on to learn about this exciting author!
- Congratulations on the release of your novel, Ghost of a Gamble. Where did you get the inspiration for your work?
Thank you! This particular book began with my research of unusual jobs. The more I learned about ghost hunting, the more intrigued I became and the more I knew I needed to have it as a strong element within the story. And since I love playing with opposite personality types, I had to pit my broody, ghosthunter main character with a bubbly skeptic to watch the parks fly.
- How would you describe your writing style?
All my writing is character-driven, punchy, and to the point. I love playing with witty dialogue, humour, and steamy love scenes. Readers will see those elements running through everything I write.
- What would you say is the most challenging aspect of being a writer? The most fulfilling?
The most challenging thing is finding time to write. Every writer knows we need to be a little bit selfish with our writing time, but luckily I have a very supportive family who helps out with that.
Holding my debut book in my hands for the first time was extremely fulfilling. So much goes into the process of creating a book, and seeing the finished product, hearing that people enjoyed it, makes everything worthwhile. I’ll never get tired of hearing people say they couldn’t put my book down!
- Ghost of a Gamble appears to be the first in a series, The Wickwood Chronicles. When can we expectBook 2 of this series?
It is! Ghost of an Enchantment comes out early spring 2021. It centers around a witch we meet near the end of the first book, Stella, and I can’t wait to share her story with the world.
