Today I ask five questions of writer, Jacqui Greaves.
1. What’s the name of your latest book – and how did you choose the title?
Gods of Fire. It had a totally different title for the entire time I spent writing and editing it. In the end I wanted something dramatic that would also hint at the story within. I filled a sheet of A4 paper with handwritten lists of potential titles and Gods of Fire was the clear winner.
2. If you could choose anyone from any time period, who would you cast as the leads in your latest book?
Hands down, a young Sam Heughan (Jamie from Outlander) would be the main character. I had his picture pinned to the wall in front of me for the entire time.
3. What five words best describe your story?
Sexy, Dangerous, Fantasy, Historical, Aflame
4. Who is your favourite fictional couple or team?
At the moment (and bearing in mind I haven’t yet seen Avengers: Infinity War) my favourite team is the Guardians of the Galaxy. Thrown together in an uneasy alliance, this bunch of misfits become family.
5. What song reflects a theme, character, relationship or scene in your book?
It has to be “Light My Fire” by the Doors.
