INTERVIEW

Everyone, please give a warm welcome to Jami Brumfield. Don’t forget to comment below before you leave.

WHAT DO YOU WRITE?

This is a loaded question. I write in the paranormal and/or fantasy genre for most of my books. I am also a contributor to a cookbook “Crazy Lady Authors Cookbook” and have started a non-fiction series called “Organizing Your Life” the first book in that series is “Become a Time Manager” ~ a beginner’s guide to time management. I like to mix subgenres but if you like paranormal you’ll probably find a book or two in my back list that you’ll enjoy.

What prepared you for becoming a writer?

I grew up watching my mother write. That was probably my first inspiration. I’m also very creative and I need outlets to express that creativity. I started on stage or in front of the camera as an actress, continued to increase my skills as a singer and dancer. When I became a triple threat my life changed because of poor health choices. I made a choice to get out of that arena and focus on more introspective ways of being creative. I learned how I could adapt creative thinking in business with out-of-the-box solutions. Then decided I needed to combine my work ethic, creativity, and spirituality together which was how I started on my path to being a hypnotherapist, life coach, NLP practitioner, and Reiki Master. As I grew and studied, worked with clients and learned my strengths and weaknesses the creative part of me still thirsted for more which was why I decided to take my writing skills and turn them into an avenue to create fictional tales of fantasy and paranormal. I had been cultivating my writing skills since I was a child but it all came to fruition a couple of years ago when I published my first novel.

How do you keep yourself motivated to write?

Because writing is therapeutic to me I find it fairly easy to keep myself motivated to write but the support of my fans and my street team triple that motivation. They are so wonderful and supportive.

Do any of your characters reflect anyone you know?

All of my characters have a piece of someone I know in them. I think it helps to anchor those paranormal characters into magical realism and helps my readers better connect with the characters.
If you were given a chance, would you enter Big Brother? Absolutely! My husband would definitely miss me for the time we’re apart but I’d love the opportunity to do something like that.

DO YOU HAVE A ROUTINE YOU FOLLOW DAILY?

For the most part. I create a to do list, prioritize those items, and formulate a schedule for the day. That’s my routine. As far as what happens during the day, well, that changes constantly from one day to the next because I work from home with clients online or over the phone and my writing (depending on deadlines I’ve set).

WHAT’S YOUR FAVE FOOD, BEVERAGE, AND/OR RESTAURANT?

I guess my favorite food is anything spicy. I love spice and variety and I love to cook. It’s been a good day in the kitchen when I can take a recipe, adapt it to my family’s taste and create a wonderful meal we all enjoy. We rarely go out to eat.

WHAT IS YOUR PERCEPTION OF YOUR PERSONALITY?

Great question, because everyone has their own perception built from experiences and filters, but I perceive myself to be an easy going, fun loving person with a lot to offer others from my work. I really enjoy helping people, whether it’s helping people escape with a good work of fantasy or personal development within the confines of my Spirit and Mind Connection ~ Coaching and Hypnotherapy business.

What is your favorite daily wear attire?

I love sun dresses.

Do you like dogs or cats?

Both. My husband teases me and says we’d have a zoo if he wasn’t around to stop me from collecting animals. I love them.

What was the best thing before sliced bread?

Just about everything because carbs are the product of the devil.

Which is your most favorite place in this earth?

In my husband’s arms

Thank you, Jami Brumfield, for being here today. It’s been great having you. All the best on your writing.

Lone Wolf Rising (Winters Saga Book 1)

Revenge has deadly consequences. Seventeen year old Rebecca Winters’ main goal for ten years has been to graduate high school and take down the people who killed her parents. When she stumbled upon a werewolf pack in the middle of Phoenix, she knew she’d found a way to make her dream come true. Instead of getting vengeance, an act of war has put her into a position of power and forces her to put her thirst for family justice on a temporary hold.

He is duty bound to protect her. Lucian (Lucky) Lamont is a member of the Protectors, an elite supernatural police force who works for the Authority. Their main goal is to keep humans in the dark about the creatures who live among them. Lucky is assigned to protect and manage Rebecca, despite her refusal of help. His cover is simple; he poses as the dutiful ‘pretend’ boyfriend in order to keep an eye on the new alpha wolf.

She is his mate.

Gabriel Black though taking his pack back from the witch who was chosen as the new alpha would be simple. He thought wrong. His entire world was turned upside down the moment he met Rebecca at the Authority Council meeting…and he was hooked the moment he kissed her to prove she wasn’t dating his best friend, Lucky.

It’s like being torn between two lovers.

Rebecca is pulled in hundreds of different directions while she attempts to find a way to survive the supernatural world, protect her family, and discover who massacred her entire pack days before her first transformation. She doesn’t have time for romance.

But the heart wants what the heart wants.

And the wolf gets what the wolf wants – or so her alpha believes. While Rebecca manages to keep her head above water as she unlocks political and family secrets which could destroy her, she loses sight of the most important people in her life and one of them pays the ultimate price.
