Interview with Jordana Ryan
We are looking forward to reading Jordana's book soon
Tell us a little about yourself
I am a 30 year old single mom who has been writing most of her life. I started in grade school by writing poetry and thought for a long time I didn’t write much of anything, I never gave up my passion for good literature. I wrote my first novel after having surgery and needing to remain on bed rest for an extended period of time. Today, I continue to write and don’t see myself as ever giving it up. I have also worked with the chronically mentally ill and dually diagnosed clients, both adult and juvenile. I enjoy crocheting, making scrapbooks and memory posters. Reading, listening to music and watching good movies.
What do you write? I write contemporary romance and Erotic Romance. I am hoping in the future to delve into suspense and mystery, however at this time my heart lies with Romance.
Why do you write? I write because I enjoy it. It’s a way for me to express myself and entertain others. There’s nothing that makes me happier than curling up with my laptop and being able to let a story flow out of me.
What are you writing now? Right now I am working on a couple of things. Perfect Game is a contemporary romance that revolves around a Pitcher from the Santa Fe, Devils who faces a career threatening injury. While recovering he develops a relationship with the coach’s daughter who has recently come to town. It’s really a great novel that deals a lot with self esteem and being able to be yourself.
Also I am currently working on And So It Goes and am releasing one chapter a month of it to the Amira Press Yahoo Group, Destiny Blaine’s Yahoo Group and my Myspace page which is http://blog.myspace.com/PrincessCheygirl.
What kind of clothes do you like to wear? I like to wear casual but trendy clothes. I enjoy looking nice and buying new clothes LOL
Are you in love? Have you ever been? Not at this time. Yes I have been, or at least I thought I was.
Do you have a dream lover – and what does he look like? I have a dream lover based on someone that I have a secret crush on. He’s tall, dark hair, brown eyes and oh so sexy.
What kind of comfort food do you like best?
Macaroni and Cheese
What makes you laugh? Cry? My friends, Reality TV and my Daughter make me laugh. Actually, it’s easy to make me laugh…I believe life without humor isn’t worth living. Child Abuse, Racism and other unjust hatreds make me cry.
What do you do to amuse yourself when not working?
Depends on the day. Sometimes I read, Sometimes I listen to music or watch TV. Mostly spend time with my daughter especially since it’s summer time.
What is it in a man or woman that turns you on? The clean version please! When a man looks at you and you can see it in his eyes that he is being sincere, that is the biggest turn on.
What do you hate about life? I hate that people have to suffer.
What do you hope to achieve in life and when will you know that you have been a success? I hope to touch the lives of others. Every time someone has told me or will tell me that I have changed their life, I know that I am a success.
What are you going to write next? A mystery called Smoke and Mirrors. It will be different for me. Written in first person and also not of the Primarily romance genre, it will definitely be interesting.
