Jamie Salisbury cannot imagine a time when she did not write. A skill that has served her well throughout her diversified professional career that encompassed public relations in and around the entertainment industry, photography, editing, and special event planning.
An avid reader of history, biographies, and romance it's only natural that she prefers to write historical romances with characters said to be "so authentic they spring forth from the page and shake the reader's hand." No stranger to life threatening situations Jamie pulls from life experience when she creates her stories. Such as when her family had to escape Chile when she was a teen because of the unstable political climate.
Unable to walk great distances as a result of several foot surgeries, she started writing once again as a way to pass the time. With the completion of her first novel Perpetual Love she dove head first into the eBook and digital publishing paradigm. She couldn't be happier with her decision to grab the publishing industry by the shoulders and force it to pay attention to all she has to offer.
Welcome, Jamie. Please tell us a bit about Timeless Sojourn.
"It wasn't supposed to be like this!", has become the mantra in Anne Harrison's head since her recent divorce. She was too old to be here...to be single. Melancholy and unsure about anything Anne takes her long time friend Kat's advice and gets back to her roots...in Seattle. There she hopes to connect with that long ago girl from her childhood and find her confidence again.
Devilishly handsome, arrogant, and cocky Geoffrey Quinn is a man of success. He's also a man of layers and most people can't get past what he portrays. No one until Anne.
The last thing either of these people are looking for is a relationship. Anne finds Geoff highly irritating (and young!) at his best, while Geoffrey finds her magnetic and wise.
Seemingly unsuitable and unplanned attractions lights a fiery passion this duo never expected.
Will they take a chance on passion? If they do what happens when the blaze recedes? What will be left ashes or embers?
What inspired you to write this book?
It is sort of based on true facts, and I took it from there and started writing it out into a manuscript.
Kat and I are just finishing up the dinner dishes and getting ready to sit and solve the problems of the world when the phone rings. Kat answers. “Of course, she’s right here. We just finished cleaning the kitchen.”
Geoffrey she mouths to me, handing me the phone.
“Hey, how are you? I asked.
“Great, thanks. I was wondering if you’d like to come over for dinner Friday night. I grill a mean steak.”
“That sounds great, Geoffrey. Can I bring anything, oh, and what time?” I smile at the thought of that killer body slaving over a grill.
“How about if I pick you up at seven, and bring something for dessert, if you don’t mind.”
“That sounds great. I’ll see you Friday.”
I hang up the phone and Kat is standing there with a huge grin on her face.
“You’re going to have dinner at Geoffrey Quinn’s?” she cackles. “You do know he’s falling hook, line and sinker, don’t you? He never invites women to his place.”
“Enough already, Kat! Geoff is young enough to be my son. We simply enjoy each other’s company.” I replied, hoping to shut her up.
“Oh no, Anne, he’s taken with you and you are quite smitten with him, although you’d be the last to admit it. Don’t play the age game crap with me because I know better.” She’s still smiling like a match maker as I turn away, my face warm from blushing.
What exciting story are you working on next?
I’m working on something titled Last of the Wild Ones – the sequel to Tudor Rose. I’m also working on a historical fiction piece based in England and Scotland in the late 19th century.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
High school is probably the earliest. I had a Creative Writing teacher who really encouraged me to write.
Do you write full time? Yes
What is your work day like? I try and spend my mornings returning emails, sending emails, checking blogs, doing PR, that sort of thing. Once that is finished I take a break and after that spend the afternoon writing.
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
Hmmmm, that is something best kept to myself!
As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
As a young child I wanted to be a teacher. Then as I became a teenager it changed and I wanted to be a singer or an actress.
