An interview with Jenna Greene


Interview with Jenna Greene

Question: What is your favorite thing you have written?


Answer: It might sound cliche, but the last thing I have written is always my favorite, as it holds my most recent passion and work. If I didn’t have enthusiasm for it, and it didn’t have unique energy surrounding it, I never would have been able to muster the time and effort to see the project through. Writing may be infinitely rewarding, but it is also insanely difficult.

Question: What are you working on now?


Answer: I have a few projects in the works. I have a few picture book manuscripts that illustrators are diligently working to bring to life. As well, I have a collection of poetry that I am seeking to publish. The main thing I am working on, however, is a sequel to my YA dystopian novel REBORN. The second book in the series is in the editing phase.


Question: What beverage or food helps you write?

Answer: Tea. Though, to be fair, I believe tea helps everything. Tired? Have a cup of tea? Too much energy? Have a cup of tea? Someone upset? Offer them some tea. Bored? Better have some tea?


Question: Forest, beach, city?

Answer: Forest, always the forest. There are many mysteries there.

Question: What is it like to be an indie author?


Answer: It varies from day to day. Sometimes I feel alone in the universe, trying to forge something out of nothing in an impossible realm. At other times, I feel surrounded by love and support. What I like about being an indie author is the independence I have for creativity, as well as how I can work on what I want, when I want. The stigma surrounding the term “indie author’ is fast-fading, so that’s good, but a lot of work has to be done by the author, behind the scenes, to market their brand, and not all new writers or outsiders are aware of that.


Question: What music helps you write?


Answer: Actually … silence. I love Broadway tunes when I’m driving my car of vacuuming the house, but writing time is a quiet time.


Question: When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?


Answer: A writer and a fairy princess … which are basically the same thing.


Question: What does the writing process look like for you?

Answer: As a full-time teacher, volunteer, coach, and mother, writing time is sought wherever it can be managed. I write in short bursts, after daydreaming most of hte day, timing my writing around naptime and bedtime. Luckily, I’m a very efficient writer.


Author Bio: Jenna Greene is a teacher and writer from Alberta, Canada. She lives with her husband, Scott, and three-year-old daughter Olivia. When she isn’t teaching or writing, she is dancing or dragon boating.
