The Jenna Hines Interview

jenna hinesWhat is one thing that no-one would usually know about you?

I am shy and can be unsociable because of this trait.

What did the best review you ever had say about you and your work?

Quote: Our Review Board found that your writing is strong enough to offer you a place among our Full Service clients. We did want to take a moment to tell you that your writing style is smooth and easy to read, and we appreciate the skill it takes to reach that level. ….Writers Relief

Are the names of your characters important to you?

Extremely, as I feel the names portray the natures of the characters. If the wrong name is chosen, it may have no appeal to the reader, and therefore they may not be able to relate to that particular character.

Do you have any hints or tips for aspiring writers?

Yes write every day and NEVER give up, even though it may be daunting to finish a story, poem or novel. When you reach the end your personal achievement will be overwhelming. Don’t be put off by rejection it’s all part of the writing game.

Where do you find your inspiration?

From many different sources, but mostly everyday life and my own personal experiences. I have lived a long and very colourful life and am lucky to have a hugely wild imagination.

What was the most important thing you learned at school?

Honesty; Discipline; accuracy; tenacity; reading writing and arithmetic. (my day job is an Accountant!).
