ABOUT JANE WATSON
JANE WATSON has loved Shakespeare from a young age, The Taming of the Shrew being a particular favorite. She attended the University of Puget Sound, where she encountered many un-tamable dudebros. When she is not writing, Jane loves to sew, draw, read, and obsessively shop for purses. She lives in Oregon with her menagerie of pets.
1-How long have you been writing?
J-I’ve only been writing professionally for a couple of years, but I’ve been writing practically my whole life. I can’t wait for some of the series I’ve been working on for years to finally be published.
2- Is there a certain genre you’d like to get into?
J-Currently, all I have published is contemporary romance, but I have been working on several fantasy books as well. I can’t wait for them to come out!
3- Who designed your (latest) book cover?
J- Lyssa Chiavari of Key of Heart Designs did both the e-book and paperback of “A Midsummer Night’s Dudebro.” I’m so happy with how they look!
4- Where do your ideas come from?
J-Lots of places—things that happen to me in my everyday life, things I wish would happen, or things I notice when I visit a new place. I like to keep notes on my phone any time an idea pops into my head.
5- If you weren’t a writer, what would you be doing?
J-I suppose I would be focusing solely on my day job, but I would have to be doing something creative for my imagination to run free.
6- Do you ever experience writers block? If so how do you get over it?
J-I experience it, especially towards the beginning of a new book when I have to lay out all of the structure. What helps me to get over it is to take a walk and think about the book, then come back to it with fresh eyes. Taking a day or two break and letting my creative juices recharge when I need it also helps.
7- How did you come up with your title?
J-When I was coming up with the idea for “The Taming of the Dudebro,” I knew I wanted it to be different, where the guy was the one who got tamed instead of the girl. As I mulled it over, I came up with Kurt’s personality traits, and the word “dudebro” immediately came to mind. The rest of the titles in the series will be pretty simple. I’m going to have fun…
8- what is your perfect writing spot?
J-I like to be outside when I write, so I enjoy sitting on my covered porch so I can admire the pretty flowers and trees and the little animals in the yard. I can only do this when the weather isn’t too cold, so I alternate with sitting by a window if I have to be inside.
9- What do you do in your free time?
J-I like to take walks with my dogs, ride my bike, and garden. I also love to read and sew and make crafts.
10-Anything you’d like to add?
J- I just want to say thank you so much again for interviewing me, and I hope everyone likes the continuing adventures of Grizz, Patricia, Kurt, and Ben. There are many more “Dudebro” stories to come!
11- Do you write friends, family, or even strangers you met into your novels?
J-I’ve never written anyone specifically into one of my books, but there will be traits of my friends in my characters—their sense of humor, their hobbies, things like that.
12- If you were a superhero what would your name be?
J-Dragon Girl, because I love dragons, haha. My super powers could be flying and emitting some kind of cool beam.
❤ I loved Jane’s answers!
and THANK YOU for LETTING me interview you, Dragon Girl 😉
I want to read the Taming of the Dudebro so badly!
