Featured Interview With Jacqui Morrison
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I grew up in Pickering Village, Ontario, Canada. When I met my husband, I moved to Northern Ontario. It’s a community on Georgian Bay. I have been writing since I was a child. I started creative writing when I was on maternity leave and I’ve been writing creatively ever since. I have also written inspiring business articles. We have a husky named Shyla and a long-haired cat named Nicky.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I started writing when I was about eight years of age. My dad wrote, non-professionally and I wanted to be like my dad. Although he never published his work, he was a great writer and an inspiration. I was also a voracious reader and I read GONE WITH THE WIND when I was only ten.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I really like Linwood Barclay from Canada, Leah Russell from England, Michael Robotham from England and Steven King from the USA. I really enjoy cozy mysteries written by Sue Grafton as well. Steven King wrote a great book about writing and I refer to it often as well as the books written by Noah Lukeman. Once it awhile I read inspirational books such as Reinvention by Arlene Dickinson.
