Interview: J. Meyers, author of Imaginable

Today I am so excited to have J. Meyers stopping by for an interview! She's the author of the paranormal fantasy series Intangible, which I reviewed last year! Check out the synopsis of the second book, Imaginable:

Twins Sera and Luke Raine’s unusual abilities are growing. Sera is healing vampires now, making them human again. And, at times, Luke can actually change the future he Sees.

But Sera’s healing has dangerous consequences, and though Luke is altering the outcome of more visions, he can’t control them yet.

Now Sera is in danger as the dark creatures of the Realm seek to use her. As Luke struggles to master his gift in order to save his sister, he discovers even more about his powers.
And what he learns just may put him in greater danger than Sera has ever been.

Tell us a little about yourself.

My favorite thing to do is laugh, and I try to not take life too seriously. I am creative and a little nuts. Also, I don’t know right from left, which my husband and kids find infinitely funny. :-)

What was your childhood dream job?

I wanted to be a veterinarian until I remembered I was allergic to almost all animals. Then I wanted to be a doctor until I realized I’d have to dissect a cadaver in med school. So I settled on being an actor/singer—with a career on Broadway and in film. (And I actually pursued that for a while, lived in NYC for two years, did summer stock, Off-Broadway shows, and extra work in TV and film, and I was in an independent film called Mud Season.)

What elements do you look for in a book?

I’m a total sucker for a beautiful turn of phrase, sweet romance, intriguing world, unique premise, and truth/realness in the characters—their actions and reactions.

Having read—and loved—Intangible, I have a few characters that are just my favorites. *cough* Jonas *cough* I know it's a terrible question to ask an author, but do you have a favorite character? Or at least a favorite to write about?

I don’t have one clear favorite. I find something I love about each of my characters—even the minor ones (maybe *especially* the minor ones). In Imaginable there are two minor characters that I absolutely adore: Sean—a vampire turned human, and Tilth—a dwarf. Oh, wait! And then there’s Thorn, a Light Elf who Luke hates at first glance. I love Thorn. And then the newly introduced Gifteds, Brandan and Raquel, really have these moments in which they shine... Oh boy, see what I’m saying? Because then there’s Jonas who I find TOTALLY swoon-worthy, and Luke is quick, funny, adorable and COMPLETELY the kind of guy I’d fall for. And I love how kickass Fey is and Sera’s spirit. Yeah, I think it’s safe to say they’re ALL my favorite. :-)

Do you have a favorite line from one of your books? And why is it your favorite?

There’s a line I really like in Imaginable that Sera says: “There’s good in all kinds. Even in the darkest places.” To me, this is a fact of life—there’s something positive in *almost* any situation (though sometimes it can be really hard to find or see). But finding the good—in people or situations—can be a life-saving skill on many levels in real life. (And in books.) ;-)
