What would you like to promote? 

My book is called ‘The Fathers, the Sons and the Anxious Ghost’ which is about three families shaken by a sudden loss and my latest project is a blog about reading, mental health and the environment. I find that I mainly book blog but I also have a keen interest in eco-issues and mental health relates nicely to both.

My blog is called JamieAdStories and I am enjoying getting to know my readers with a range of posts, including ‘5 Ways To’ and book reviews. Any excuse to discuss books and writing.

What inspires you?

I love so many different writers, including Joanne Harris, Matt Haig and Liane Moriarty, all of whom write in short chapters. This has very much inspired my own writing style. I also love how YA stories are relatable and bring back memories of growing up and going for goals.

What was your favourite movie that was based on a book?

I’d probably choose a classic that really stuck with me because it was so well made and the stars nailed it. Sense and Sensibility introduced Kate Winslet and showed Imelda Staunton and Emma Thompson as incredible actors as well as portraying Jane Austen’s world brilliantly.

What was your favourite childhood book?

Roald Dahl kept me entertained as a kid and The Witches has always been my favourite of his because the storyline was exciting, fun and heart-warming. The chilling Grand High Witch particularly stayed in my memory and it was great to see her get her comeuppance.

What is your favourite thing about being a writer and blogger?

My favourite thing about being a writer is creating characters, making them interesting and relatable. As a blogger, I love when people respond to my posts as I see a blog as a kind of conversation, open to contributions.

What projects are you working on right now?

I am halfway through editing my first YA novel about two teenagers who come across a neglected house and afterward become strangely overshadowed by it. The book is called ‘Being Watched’ and I look forward to it being published in autumn. Fingers crossed.

What does success look like to you?

I especially enjoy audience feedback. Seeing a friendly comment on my blog or reading a thoughtful review of my book will always make my day.

Thank you Jamie for this wonderful interview!
