Hello...Chick Lit Author Q&A with Jill Breugem

Author Q&A with Jill Breugem

I’m was so pleased to chat with Jill Breugem before her book launch of Read Between the Lines, that was recently released!

Author Q&A

Tell me what made you want to become a writer?
I have always loved to write. I wrote short stories when I was younger, have journaled most of my life and am a huge sucker for romance. It helps me tune out for awhile.
What are you reading right now?
I have a couple on the go, Emily Giffen- Heart of the Matter and Zoe York – No Time Like Forever
One is a paperback and the other on my tablet, so whichever is closer.
If you’re a TV watcher, what are you addicted to?
Either singing reality competition shows or HGTV. I have a zillion rom-com movies and will throw those on too.
What’s a hobby you have that’s got nothing to do with books?
I love essential oils and have been using for over 20 years.  I make my own perfume and body oils and also use for therapeutic benefits.
What’s your favorite reading/writing snack?
Is wine a snack? Lol …red wine and dark chocolate.
What is your favorite season? 
Living in Canada I really love the changing of seasons but it’s about this time of year that I really long and wish for spring.  As the quote says though, ” But I love fall most of all”
Tell me your favorite part of the writing process?
When it’s all coming together!  Either writing out outlines/ideas or when chapters fly out of me.
Now the writing process you hate the most?
Hmm…my editor made it rather painless, providing positive feedback and then ideas/corrections – so I can’t say it is editing.  I think just when you have writer’s block – that’s a real buzzkill.
Do you have a favorite writing spot that you get the most done?
Living room in a big cozy chair in front of big bright window.
Where are you most inspired?
Home, but there is something about coffee shops too.
What are you working on now?
The Distance Between Us, it’s the second in the series and focuses on two characters you meet in Read Between the Lines – Ally and Oliver. Should be out by November.
Coffee, Wine or something else?
Although I like red wine, my go to drink is a hot cup of tea. ☕❤
