Author Interview Jessica E. Subject

Please welcome Jessica E. Subject to The Far Edge of Normal today! Jessica Subject started writing to encourage her daughter to read. Now she writes to keep herself grounded. Although she reads many genres, she enjoys writing Science Fiction Romance the most and believes everyone in the universe deserves a happily ever after. She lives Southwestern Ontario, Canada with her husband and two kids and loves to hear from anyone who has enjoyed her stories. Her debut novella, Celestial Seduction is available from Decadent Publishing.
What genre do you write?

I write science fiction romance, with more emphasis on the romance part. I also have a contemporary erotic romance story published.

Do you have cats or other pets? Why or why not?

Right now, we have a rabbit, and some fish that multiply like crazy. When the kids are older, we hope to get a puppy.

What events do you have coming up?

Right now, I am finishing up the blog tours for Unknown Futures, and Never Gonna Let You Go, both of which released in January.

In March, I’ll be promoting my first release, Celestial Seduction, which will be Decadent Publishing’s Read For a Cure story. All publisher proceeds from my story in March will be donated to the American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life program.

Also in March, my first novel, The Zurian Child, will release from Silver Publishing.

How do you like your romance, sweet or spicy?

Oh, I read it all, from sweet inspirational romance and young adult to erotica. I love it all.

What is your current WIP?

I’m working on the sequel to The Zurian Child, and other smaller projects.

Do you write to music or not? If so, what type of music inspires you the most?

I don’t listen to music while I’m writing, but I do when I’m brainstorming ideas. While doing housework or driving, I’ll listen to my playlist for a particular story so when I sit down to write, I have the right vibe. Dance and pop music tend to make up most of my playlists, but I do listen to heavier and slower stuff as well.

What are your favorite movies, tv shows, or books to read? Is there one that you could watch/read over and over without ever tiring of it?

Movies – Star Trek (2009), Star Wars (all except Revenge of the Sith – too gory for me), Jurassic Park 3, The Core, Contact, Avatar

TV Shows – Castle

Books – Following many series by Nora Roberts w/a J.D. Robb, Gini Koch, Rebecca Royce, D.L. Jackson, Zee Monodee, and Lorna Suzuki

I could and have watched and read all of these over again and still never grow tired of them.

If you could travel anywhere on Earth, where would you want to go?

I could list  so many places, all for different reasons, but here are 5: Alaska, Mauritius, Scotland, Germany, and Vancouver.

If you could travel anywhere, fictional or real, where would you go?

I think it would be the ultimate experience to travel into space and look back at Earth.

If you could time travel, what is one event you would want to see in person, either future or past?

First contact.

What's your favorite color?

Green.

Food?

Pasta.

Reading spot?

Anywhere I can. I always carry a book when I’m waiting for the kids after school, and read while on my Health Walker.

Her former lover, Erik Edwards, shuns her, sending Calla into the arms of Melina Holloway, their commander, for the attention she craves and more. A confrontation among the trio leaves her with a broken heart, and fleeing from the two people she trusted most.

Attempting to break free from the lies that bind her, she discovers Planet Core has deceived everyone. And when she returns to Earth, Calla learns just how far Planet Core’s control reaches..
