Please help me welcome author Jaye C. Blakemore to Interview an Author on Jemsbooks Blog. Thank you, Jaye, for coming today to share your book with my readers and me.
- Please tell us a little about yourself and how you first became interested in writing?
I had never in a million years thought about writing a book. I was traveling for a living and started writing a story that came to me one night while I was trying to go to sleep. The story then became 95,000 words. I had my book on a thumb drive that went into my desk drawer for several months, while I started my next writing yet another book.
- What inspires you to write?
I only write at night while the whole world sleeps my pin seems to come to life. The story somehow picks me.
- Please share your book/books with us and a synopsis of one or more.
Double Identity is the book I just had published. This is a fiction novel about twins separated at the age of three. Gillian and Julianne both find romance and still concur deceit, murder and seek revenge.
- Which one is your favorite and why?
I truly love Double Identity, once I finished writing I was kind of sad. I became so connected with everyone in my novel, almost like making new best friends.
- Where do you prefer to write?
I keep my computer downstairs in my office, and if something comes in the middle of the night I do go write but I try to keep it from consuming my whole life. With music or without? I can only write in the peace and quiet.
- What do you like to do in your spare time, when you have it?
I have two poodles. Boy and Girl are like having 2 small children. We try and go to the park or walks daily, they need out as much as I do. I love being outdoors.
- What is your favorite genre? Do you write in multiple genres?
I do write in multiple genres. I love romance but a good old fashioned murder and mystery is always a good twist.
I have always love reading romance and mysteries but I get scared if they are too scary.
- What is your target audience?
I think men and women 45+ that like a love story that may not always go smoothly.
- Please share your latest project or next one?
I have been working on a book that also has a twist and yes another murder mystery.
- Can you give new writers/authors any advice?
Social media is a must. It’s easy to pay someone to get your social media up and running, however I firmly believe for me, getting my social presents out was rewarding and people need to know you before buying a book. I have so enjoyed making new friends along the way.
- Is there anything else you would like to share?
Do not be someone that says I should write a book, just do it and say I wrote a book, if for no one else but yourself.
- Please share your links to purchase and social links to contact you.

Addendum: Here is my review of Double Indemnity on Amazon.
A Great Romantic Suspenceful Thriller of a Read! 5 Stars!
Double Indemnity kept me in suspense until the last chapter. Loved the ending especially! The story was chock full of mystery, romance, intrigue and surprises that made for a thoroughly enjoyable read. There were multiple stories going on with a myriad of characters that could have been more than one book. I liked the way the author created the twins alike in some ways but completely opposite in others.
This author did a commendable job with the storyline and made this reader a fan. I am an author of different genres including mystery thriller and look forward to more from this creative writer. I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. I highly recommend this book.
