My name is Jamie Campbell, I’m an author based on the Gold Coast, Australia. I write mainly young adult paranormal romance, however I do write some adult murder mysteries on the side. I enjoy both genres so I write whatever story comes to me.
Describe your writing process. Do you have a daily routine?
I have a set word goal every day. Without fail, I do at least 2,000 words. On a day where I get to write all day, I’ll write about 8,000 words across all my current projects.
Introduce us to your latest work. What’s it about?
A World Without Angels is the first in The Aron Angels series. It follows guardian angel Jerome as he inadvertently falls to Earth during a battle with some demons. While on Earth, he falls in love with a human, Leila. In order to stop the demons killing all the guardian angels and therefore plunging the world into the influences of evil, he and Leila must solve an ancient prophecy. Only then can peace be restored.
I really enjoyed writing the Aron Angels series, mainly because Jerome is such a sweetheart. I also had a lot of fun with the Fairy Tales Retold series, where I twisted the perspective of well known fairytales. I changed the antagonist into the protagonist and enjoyed making the villain the hero.
If you had the choice of which book to introduce a new reader to, would that be it, or would you start them with a different book?
I would start with A World Without Angels as the reader can see the kind of worlds I create and fall in love with Jerome.
Do you have a character in your writing that you relate with more than most?
A have a four part series called A Hairy Tail going at the moment, I’m just in the middle in the forth installment. The main character is named Hannah and she’s a lot like me when I was fifteen. I have found a lot of myself in her when I read it back to myself, even though it wasn’t intentional.
Where do you find inspiration?
Inspiration is everywhere. Sometimes it’s found when I hear a song and then suddenly see this whole book in front of me. Other times, it’s from something I’ve seen or heard in the street. The best ideas always come to me in the shower and then I’m scrambling to remember them afterwards.
What can we look forward to in the future?
I have lots and lots more unpublished books. I’m currently working on an alien trilogy which I am so excited about that it might push all the others aside and jump the queue to be released next.
Every day this week, I am featuring a different author on my blog as part of the Blogger Book Fair.
