His eyes gleamed with a mission. He stood strong and with purpose. He appeared fearless

I grew up in Southeast Missouri; home
of the Throwed Rolls, high cotton, and the St. Louis Cardinals. I have a little
family consisting of son, daughter, son-in-law and a little Pi. Other than my
children (and grandchild), my passion is writing. My current project is The
Three Crowns Series. Sweet Tea is the first book in this seven-novel series
which published October 15, 2013.
Besides reading and writing, I enjoy singing. I love music period. Music is in
our family. Whether it be the bluegrass from the Ozarks that my Grandpa Sutton
use to play on his banjo or fiddle, or the smooth, family harmony in which I am
fortunate enough to sing with my Dad and Brother. But you can give me some
kickin’ AC/DC too! I like it all!I work full-time as an Administrative Assistant. Every free moment is dedicated
to my family and my current project, The Three Crowns, a seven-novel paranormal
romance series.

 

It all starts with a Queen and a Plan.

 

The Three Crowns is a New
Adult/Paranormal Romance series. There are seven books to complete the series,
with a novella. This series has your modern day vampires dealing with the Old
World Laws creating a struggle for ultimate power in the Night World.
THE THREE CROWNS SERIES SYNOPSISThe Three Crowns series is about a normal girl whose life is more than what she
will allow herself to imagine. It is the journey of her accepting that
everything is not black and white, and our logic of what we understand does not
mean something does exist. Throughout the story she is protected, loved,
groomed and pushed to her limits to prepare her for what lies ahead of her. She
is tested in all areas of her humanity which will someday bring her to know the
person she is destined to be. The human nature of love is a tangled web of
emotions for she feels the love of two men who are continually being taken away
from her for the sake of their positions in the future as well.

 

Snippet:

“We
have to get out now!”
I could
feel the intensity of each word being yelled to me from this guy standing over
me. I didn’t know him, yet…I did. My heart was pounding. Fire was all around
us. Smoke was heavy in the air. Where was I? Throughout the large room, the
murk was cut as bodies were thrown through the air, and swords swung faster
than my eyes could follow. I heard loud gnashing and growling all around me,
and the smell of flesh burning filled my nose. There was only one place I could
possibly be. Hell.  
I
looked down and took notice of my torn and blood-drenched clothes. A panic
blanketed me as my thoughts ran rapid. How could this be? Am I going to die?
What am I doing in hell?
“We
have to go now!” The guy exclaimed, grabbing my arm. His eyes gleamed with a
mission. He stood strong and with purpose. He appeared fearless. He looked to
be my age. Wait. What is my age right now? Am I seventeen? I feel like…I’ve
lived a thousand lives, yet haven’t even begun to live. I took a deep breath,
trying to focus on the moment. And if all I had was this moment, then I had to
move or be moved (or die more like it!).
I arose
to my feet, feeling very weak. I looked down to keep from stumbling, and
screamed in horror. A man’s body lay close to my feet. His head lay next to his
body. I felt tears starting to burn in my eyes from complete fear that had
taken hold of me. As I gasped in shock, I noticed a few more feet away from the
first body lay another body crumpled on the floor. Again, his head was next to
his body…and another body! Oh God! Please show me the door out of this
nightmare! I quickly turned away and tried to run. I didn’t get four feet when
I tripped. I gathered myself and tried getting up as quickly as I could. When I
looked to see what I had tripped over, I couldn’t help but scream. It was
another headless body. But this time it was a woman! As I scrambled up, I
looked over to the left of the body, and there was her head about five feet
away. My blood ran cold as chills climbed my spine. Fear had found me as
though it had been seeking me. I could almost hear the haunting echoes of his
laugh ringing in my head as he closed in on taking what little courage remained
in my possession. This fear wanted more than just my courage-he wanted my
soul. My soul he could not have! A new strength consumed me and I pushed on
through the nightmare.

Jessica and Briana co-authored Seeking the Storyteller an interview

Monday, June 30th, 2014

Ok Girls, how long have you been writing?

 

Jessica: I’ve been writing on and off for years.  I don’t remember my first story or when I started, but the earliest one I can remember with any detail was a fanfiction for Bucky O Hare and the Toad Wars back in the early 90’s, I might have written some horrible Star Trek stuff before that.

Briana:  I have a clear memory of writing back when I was 9 years old.  It was a pop up book made with construction paper and crayons and featured farm animals.  I have no idea what the story itself was about, but I remember those details.  I’ve been writing on and off ever since, from fanfiction to what I write now.

 

Tell us where you were born and where do you live now.

Jessica: I was born in Missouri but moved to Minnesota shortly after.  I’ve grown up for most of my life in Minnesota around the Twin Cities.  Currently I live in St Paul with my partner and sometimes coauthor.

 

Briana:  I was born in Chicago and grew up there or in the suburbs nearby for 18 years of my life.  I left home to go to Iowa State University, where I met Jessica online, and after graduation in 2006 I moved to Minnesota to be with her.  We live together in St. Paul right now with our cats and geeky things.

 

How do you know the idea is good enough to write a book about it?

Jessica:  All ideas (more…)

Yeah… What is the most difficult thing about being an author?Marketing. The market is so flooded these days that it is so hard to stand out and when I put in a bunch of effort, sometimes it still does not bring results. That, and it takes me away from the actual writing.Amen to that. (more…)
