Interview & Giveaway - Janni Nell


Happy Monday!!

What better way to kick-off a Monday then with an interview & GIVEAWAY!

Please welcome, Janni Nell, author of the Allegra Fairweather Series.


Hi Jess

Thanks for having me on your blog. It’s a pleasure to be here.J


So, how long have you seriously writing?

I was writing seriously for about ten years before I was published, but I’d been dabbling in writing for much longer. Even before I wrote ‘seriously’ I always had a dream of getting published. I just didn’t realize how difficult it would be.


 How did the idea of Allegra & her world come about?

I started writing the first Allegra book for the old Bombshell line – hence the kickass heroine. Then Bombshell folded so I never found out if it was right for them. I’m more than happy Allegra found a home with Carina Press.


 Which character do you think you’re the most like?

Oh, that’s a tough question. I’ve had to think very hard about this. My answer is going to be kind of predictable, but I’m probably most like Scarlett Gordon, a minor character from the first book, who’s an author.


 If you had a guardian angel (like Casper) and could pick ANYONE take the roll who would you chose?

Another tough question.  I guess a good guardian angel would make you feel safe, they’d be someone you could rely on no matter what. Can’t go past my husband for that, although I prefer him alive. J


 What author would you like to spend the day with & what would you do?

Too easy. Susan Howatch. I don’t think she’s writing anymore, but her final work of fiction was a trilogy featuring a healing center in London called St Benet’s. I’d love to spend a day with her visiting the place on which St Benet’s was based.


Quickies (Nature edition)


Ocean or Lake?

Difficult choice. Lake, I think, although it’s hard to beat the sight of an ocean glittering in the sun.


Swimming or Hiking?

I enjoy both, but I’m going for hiking.


Rock Climbing or White water rafting?

White water rafting, so long as I had a good life jacket. Knowing me, I’d be the one who falls in the water.


Camping or Hotel?

Hotel, penthouse, five star!!!  (Of course, I’m assuming I could afford this. LOL)


Snakes or Spiders?

Hmm. Pass. Don’t like either. And in Australia we have plenty of both!


Thank you SO much for stopping by Janni!
