JQM LITERARY CHAT WELCOMES MJ Vieira
TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF:
I’m an American paranormal thriller/fantasy/horror who currently resides in Iowa with my twelve year old son, husband, and two fur babies: Poopah and Sir Fluffabut. An avid music fan and coffee addict, I am usually jamming out and reading when I’m not writing.
WHAT INFLUENCED YOU TO WRITE YOUR GENRE(S)?
I’ve always been fascinated with the paranormal. I find it hard to believe that we humans have know everything about life on Earth. There are too many stories out there, across the globe, of the paranormal for there not to be truth to some of the myths. As far as the fantasy genre goes, I love reading high fantasy like Toilken and Patrick Rothfuss, and Jacqueline Carey. I find their worlds memorizing and awe inspiring. So, I wanted to try my hand at it.
WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE AUTHORS?
I have to many to list. But right now, I’ve been reading a lot of Karen Marie Moning, Joshilyn Jackson, Mike Carey. Also, indie authors Robert Cano, JA Stone and Cheryl Rush Cowperthwait.
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE BOOKS?
LOTR Return of the King, The Dark Angel by Meredith Ann Pierce, Into the Water by Paula Hawkins, Pandora by Anne Rice, Shadowfever by Karen Marie Moning, Obsidian Butterfly by Laurel K Hamilton and the Harry Potter series.
WHO ARE YOUR FAVORITE LITERARY CHARACTERS?
Again, a hard one. Aragon from LOTR, Armand from Anne Rice’s vampire series, Barrons from Karen Marie Moning’s Fever Series, Snape from HP, and many, many more.
IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WANT TO SHARE WITH POTENTIAL READERS?
To keep reading and supporting authors. We may not all be traditionally published, but there are so many worlds out there to explore! If the world around you is too much, pick up a book and find a new escape.
WHERE CAN WE GO TO LEARN MORE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR LITERARY WORKS?
