Someday Stars: Meet Juliana L. Brandt
I'm Juliana L. Brandt and I currently live in Tennessee, though I'm originally from Minnesota (and if pressed, I'd also say I'm from Mississippi. My Bf says I'm an honorary Southerner :))
How long have you been writing?
As every writer says: I can't remember a time when I didn't write. I have been seriously writing though (aiming for publication) for about two years.
What genre(s) do you write?
I write a wide variety, but mostly stick to YA fantasy.
What’s your current WIP? Can you tell us about it?
My current MS is YA speculative fiction and involves a post-apocalyptic Drought, genetically engineered humans and a pack of wild dogs.
What’s your current day job? How does it help or hinder your writing?
I am a secretary and it helps my writing immensely. As long as I'm answering the phones, I can work on anything I need to.
Who is your favorite author?
Why such a difficult question?? Ahh...RowlingJonesVanWredeNixSnyderTolkienMorgenstern...Does that count?
I think I'll go with Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones.
What other hobbies or activities do you do outside of writing?
I do a lot of trail hiking/running. My weekends are spent mostly outside with my dogs :)
What is something unique about yourself?
I love marshmallows. During the winter, I'll sit in front of the stove with marshmallows on a fork so I can eat them all melty. Yum.
Do you have a blog, Twitter, and/or Web site we can link to?
