Author Interview – Jessica Kristie

How much of the book is realistic? Most of it if not all is realistic and based on basic human condition and response and survivor stories that I’ve read.

Have you included a lot of your life experiences, even friends, in the plot? The basic emotion and reaction is based on some personal experience, but the book is all fiction.

What do you do to unwind and relax? Quiet. All I need is quiet. 

What are your current writing projects now? I have a psychological thriller that is now complete that I’m very excited about. I believe it really highlights my growth as a writer and allowed me to write in a genre I really enjoy reading. I hope to have it out early next year.

Have you developed a specific writing style? I believe I have, although it is not something I can easily pin-point myself. With poetry it is easy to see my style. I think some of that flows over into my novel writing which adds to my personal voice.

What do you consider the most challenging about writing a novel, or about writing in general? It can be an overwhelmingly tedious process to keep characters and storyline straight while flowing it all together into a cohesive and exciting story. That is always the beginning challenge for a writer but also the most rewarding aspect once it is accomplished.

What is your favorite color? Purple and Periwinkle

What is your favorite food? Pizza

Elani Benjamin had never imagined the level of fear and uncertainty that was now a demoralizing part of her everyday life. With freedom ripped from her world, Elani must stand alongside the hundreds of other women forced into slave labor by the mysterious organization that runs The Hub. At only thirteen years of age, she must decide if she will give in to the daily atrocities surrounding her or keep fighting her courageous, emotional battle for freedom. Malnutrition, intimidation, and abuse force them all into an isolated depression that guarantees compliance. On the edge of surrender, Elani finds an ally in Eddie, a repentant long-term employee of The Hub who gives her the resolution to find a way out of her imprisonment and the hope of reclaiming her stolen freedom.
