Interview with chick lit author J.G. Dow

special guest is chick lit author
J.G. Dow and we’re chatting
about Jane of Manchester.
Welcome, J.G. Please tell us a little
bit about yourself.
I was born in Huddersfield and went to University in
Manchester to study Social Science. I got into writing in my twenties, starting
off with poetry and moving onto novels. I like socialising a bit and reading
and listening to a wide range of music as well as a bit of walking now and
Please tell us about your current
Jane of
is a fun, easy reading type chick lit novel with
funny parts as well as the odd reflective bits when Jane is trying to figure
out what she wants in life. Light reading.
What inspired you to write this book?
I wanted to write something a bit different from what
I had done before and as I studied in Manchester, it seemed the perfect place
to set the novel.
What exciting story are you working on
I’m currently working on the Jane of Manchester sequel and I’m nearly finished so there won’t be
too long a wait until it’s out there.
When did you first consider yourself a
When I tried poetry and realised I liked that but
mainly after my first book which was a sci-fi.
Do you write full-time? If so, what’s
your work day like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find
time to write?
At the moment, I do it part time but want to try and
make it full time if I can get enough readers. I write in the evenings,
although it probably would be better to write earlier so I may change writing
times soon and see how that goes!
What would you say is your interesting
writing quirk?
I don’t really have one although I drink a Berocca
vitamin drink while doing it so maybe that’s a quirk!
As a child, what did you want to be when
you grew up
I didn’t have a clue!
Anything additional you want to share
with the readers?
I enjoy playing guitar and used to want to play in a
band but I think writing is probably more satisfying in the long run!

you for being here today, J.G.
