Welcome: Jean Lauzier
December 8, 2012
I’m meeting Jean on this Tour, and So Pleased to Have Her Visit…
Jean Lauzier has always been a writer though life just recently settled enough so she can spend the time needed at the keyboard with her characters. Jean writes mystery and fantasy for the most part but enjoys playing with romance and western genres ever so often. When not writing, Jean spends her time trying to keep her Bonsai alive, learning Spanish and training the cat. She is president of the East Texas Writer’s Association.
What Jean Likes About Writing
Thanks so much for having me on your blog today. And gee, you asked a hard question.
What do I like most about being a writer? Well, it varies from day to day. Some days I love the writing part. Those are the days when the right words just seem to flow from the fingers to the page. The times I’m so involved in the writing when it’s like nothing else exists, just the story. No kids yelling, no television blaring in the background. Several times when this has happened I’ve had the kids come in and ask me a question and I’ll just agree. About 30 minutes later it dawns on me I agreed to something and have to go find out what it was. Thankfully my kids don’t ask for strange things.
Other days, I love the editing. Taking good words and making ‘em great. Working with a excellent editor makes editing fun. And when a story has been polished and shined, it’s a great feeling.
And I can’t leave out writer’s conferences. I LOVE writer conferences! Getting to meet writers from all over the world, learning about craft, then getting to socialize with people who understand what it’s like to have all the voices in your head…wonderful way to spend time.
I guess the best thing though, is when a reader tells you how your words touched them. When a reader is entertained for a bit, when they forget all the problems in their daily lives, even if it’s just for the time it takes to read a short story, then I know I’ve done my job right. And that’s a darn good feeling. Jean’s short story collection, Six Pack of Murder is available on Amazon.
And during the tour, Jean will be giving away at least three copies of Six Pack of Murder and three copies of the soon to be released Dark Descent. Be sure to leave a comment along with your email address to be entered in the drawing.
