Welcome to another edition of Meet The Author Moment! Today, we’re featuring Janice Horton.
[AC]: What are you working on at the minute?
[JH]: I’m about to start working on a new novel set in the Caribbean for summer 2016 release. I’ve been doing a bit of research and I’ve been waking up at night with plot inspiration, character insights and narrative. That’s how I know I’m ready to start!
[AC]: What draws you to this genre?
[JH]: I love to read adventure romance novels – and so that’s what I choose to write.
[AC]: Which actor/actress would you like to see playing the lead character from your most recent book?
[JH]: Castaway in the Caribbean is my most recent book and I could easily see Matthew McConaughey as Travis and – I think Kate Hudson as Janey – I loved them together in the movie ‘Fools Gold’.
[AC]: How much research do you do?
[JH]: Lots! I love the research as much as the writing and nowadays there is no limit to the research I will do. For my novel ‘Reaching for the Stars’ which was about a disgruntled celebrity chef, I interviewed celeb chefs in their kitchens and my research resulted in my debut TV appearance and the subject of a ITV news documentary. I shared the research I did in the Caribbean last year for ‘Castaway in the Caribbean’ with my friends and readers on my social networks and the novel became a #1 Kindle Bestseller. If peeps are interested I’ll do the same again this time around as I’m back in the Caribbean right now researching the islands.
[AC]: When did you decide to become a writer?
[JH]: I aspired to be a writer as a child because I was an avid reader for a young age and I thought being a writer and making up imaginary stories must be the best job in the world. I’ve had many other types of jobs over the years before and during the time I became a professional writer – but I was right – it is the best job in the world!

“Janice has made it her business to get stuck into the whole self-publishing malarkey. Savvy enough to realise it’s not enough to simply write, she’s studied social media marketing until it could be her specialist subject on Mastermind. She can plan a book launch, maximise publicity, keep the momentum going after the first initial flush, and perhaps most of all, she knows how to make the whole thing fun, which is no mean feat”.
