Welcome back to my blog, Jewel. I love your book cover. Please tell us about this sweet romance: Beautiful In My Eyes.
Where did you get your inspiration for this novel? Do you ever put real experiences in your books?
Well, Giselle's trial is one I have been dealing with for years, not to the same extreme, but enough that I can understand exactly how she feels. Fortunately, I also have an amazing husband whose love is also unconditional, and despite my insecurities, he tells me I'm beautiful every day, and shows me as well.
What kind of research did you do for this book?
I really didn't have to do much. Since the heroine's trial is hair loss, I just looked up the various forms of Alopecia, from mild to extreme, and I looked up the symptoms, as well as treatment options. Sadly, in most cases, once you have reached a point, nothing can be done to stop it and the hair loss continues its course. Emotionally, it is devastating.
That is so interesting. Your writing style is fun. Most authors write in past tense, but you write in present tense. How does this affect your writing or story?
I just love writing in present tense because it kind of puts the reader right there in the moment. At least, that’s what they tell me:-)
Thank you, Jewel, for a wonderful interview. I love your book cover. I’ve been told that book covers really help to sell the book.
