Please give a warm welcome to author J.A. Roles
Tell us a bit about yourself…
I’m USA Today Best Selling Author, J.A. Roles, from Manchester, UK.
Have you always wanted to become an author?
I’ve loved writing ever since I can remember. I’d always sit and write in journals and notepads every chance I got. So, yes I’ve always wanted to be an author.
What was your inspiration for your current book/series?
I was driving across the moors (hills full of myth and legend) just outside of Manchester when I was hit by a flood of inspiration, and so my Pennine Prophecies series was born.
What are you working on now?
I’m currently working on the sequel to my debut vampire novel “The Awakening”. It also has three spin-offs for the rehabilitation centres for each supernatural creature, known as Institutes. The Shadow Institute for rogue vampires is titled, Beyond The Shadows. Lunar Institute is for werewolves to learn restraint. And the Institute of Leather Jackets for misbehaving witches and warlocks.
Do you have any quirks while working?
One thing I never do is plan. I let my characters guide me… so even I don’t know what shenanigans they’ll get up to next.
What are your hopes for the future?
I hope to expand the series and keep creating a world readers will love.
Do you have any advice for new authors about the publishing world?
To keep writing and never give up.
Do you have anything to say to your followers?
I’m grateful to all of my readers for giving my books a chance and leaving amazing reviews. It means more than they know.
