Many thanks Livia for allowing me to guest on your blog today! I’m such a fan of yours-it’s great that you are having me as your guest today. Thanks so much!
My name is Hunter S. Jones, author and music blogger from Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The art form I create when writing is much more interesting than anything you will ever know or learn about me. However, since you ask, I have lived in Tennessee and Georgia my entire life, except for one “lost summer” spent in Los Angeles. I was always a complex kid. My first published stories were for a local underground indie rock publication in Nashville, Tennessee. I have published articles on music, fashion, art, travel, history and climate change.
Currently, besides my music blog on ExpatsPost.com and my debut novella, Fables of the Reconstruction, published in October, 2012, I have been included in the Moon Rose Publishing anthology, A Celtic Tapestry. A Celtic Tapestry features an incredible assortment of authors—Miranda Stork, Elodie Parkes, Laura DeLuca, Elle J Rossi, Tara Stogner Wood, Carolyn Wolfe, YOU and ME! What a talented group. I so loved working with everyone and being included in this project. And, we’re such a great look team, too…
1. Do you write under a nom de plume?
2. Who would you go gay for?
This is easily answered. Either you or Scarlett Johannson
3. How important is it for you to keep your life as a writer and your private life separate?
The writer life is the creative life. The private life is the real world. Fortunately, seldom do the two worlds collide.
4. Are you in introvert or an extrovert?
5. Where is your favorite place to write?
At a window overlooking Crescent Avenue, here in Atlanta.
6. Do you have a mentor?
I had a mentor but made the unfortunate mistake of falling in love with him. We had planned a sexy collaboration, since he’s an author, too. But, I’ve decided to put some distance between us until I understand what I’m going through as well as the how and why of it all. I’m just the worst—there is no thinking when I fall for someone. I fall head over heels; heart and soul. It’s only happened a few times in my life and I’m always surprised at how sad it makes me.
That’s why writing Magic in Memphis, the Yule story from A Celtic Tapestry, was so very difficult for me to write. It’s just a struggle for me to imagine a Happily Ever After. It’s almost beyond comprehension, really. I had to dig deep to find the story of Vix Bryant and James Wellington. Maybe someday I will get the HEA, but until then I’ll just continue with Horror/Supernatural. Now that I can comprehend. Nothing is more terrifying or horrible than our own emotions. lol
You know Livia, If we can ever decipher the code of the heart and what makes us fall in love with another person, we will write the greatest book of all time.
7. Do you have any last words?
Support indie artist whether they are musicians, writers, dancers or painters. The cup of coffee or tea you purchase will end up in a landfill. Someone’s art could change your life—maybe forever.
