Who Is J.B May?

  1. What inspired you to write a book?

A busy and overactive mind. I would daydream scenarios and stories constantly. I found that channelling those thoughts and putting them down on paper calmed my mind.

  1. Who is your favourite author and why?

Brigid Kemmerer, I like her writing style and the themes of her stories.

  1. What is your favourite food?

Freshly baked crusty bread with a fluffy centre served with good butter and a pinch of pink sea salt, add some soft cheese and cured meats and I’m in heaven.

  1. What do you like to do when you are not writing?

Blasting music while singing off key and dancing like a uncoordinated overly dramatic child who snuck on stage at a concert.

  1. As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?

I don’t think I ever had a plan of what I wanted to be, at least not that I can remember.

  1. What do you think makes a good story?

Heart. If it can make you feel something or stir something inside you, then it’s good.

         7. What was one of the most surprising things you learned from writing your book?    

That I could write a book.

  1. When did you realise you wanted to be a writer?

When writing made me happy and that was only a few years ago.

  1. How long does it take you write a book?

Pre-baby 6-12months, post-baby 12months plus (Babies are hard work)

  1. Can you share with us what your next book will be about?

I have a children’s book called Missing Magic which will be available on Amazon kindle on the 17/9/2020, the pre-sale for this is already up. It’s a fairy-tale approach to discussing infertility with young children. As for the books for older audiences, I have two book concepts outlined at the moment but I’m not sure which one will take centre stage yet. One is a dystopian tale that addresses overpopulation and environmental abuse and the other is a reimagining of a classic fairy tale, snow white.
