Author Interview: The Journeys of John and Julia in Chapter One: Genesis by Aurelia

The Journeys of John and Julia in Chapter One: Genesis
The Journeys of John and Julia in Chapter One: Genesis by Aurelia
After Julia’s father leaves their family, Julia’s mom takes Julia out of camp to live with her grandmother in Cedarwood Ridge for the summer. When Julia learns her mom is planning on leaving her there for the whole year, Julia begins to plot her escape.
Although things may look desperate, a collective of wondrous beings called The Twenty-Two are watching over her and trying to make contact. If only Julia knew that they could tell Julia every thought she never knew she had and bend her reality in any way they choose. And that she’d be with John Freeman when it happened. And that he’d think it was cool.
And that is just the beginning.

interview with Blkosiner's Book Blog

--The Twitter version: tell us about your book in 140 characters or less.
Superhero training to save the world from ultimate evil mastermind while dealing with everyday problems like family, peer pressure and love.

--How did you get the idea for the story?
I think the transition from child to adult is one of the most important tasks we have to accomplish and most of us are not very well equipped to do that. We are so impressionable and don’t really know what role models we should follow and so we feel intrinsically alone, whether we have a gang of friends or are the lone wolf type. So I decided to write about the dynamics – positive and negative – that shape our minds at that young age.
--Which character would you most/least like to have dinner with?
I would totally love to have dinner with Victor Wagner and least with Julia’s grandma.

--What are some of your favorite books? Do you still have much time to read?
I love "The Alchemist" by Paulo Coelho and can read pretty much anything by Terry Pratchett no matter the mood I am in. Check out my other favorites on my Shelfari, Goodreads and Library Thing shelves. I am kind of a night owl and love to read before I go to bed. And because I am a strong believer in the fact that the time I take is the time I have, I never think much about time at all – unless I have to catch a plane that is J
--Do you have any other works in progress? Any teasers or release dates?
I am writing book two of the journeys and I will soon post a teaser on my website

--If a fairy godmother told you your life could be like a favorite book for 24 hours, which book would you pick and why?
I would love to be Courtney as Jane in "Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict" because I would like to know what life in the 19th century was like and then maybe have greater appreciation for the things I take for granted today.

--Do you need anything to write (music, coffee, etc)? Are there any songs on your playlist- songs that inspired you or that were playing while you wrote?
I need lots of water, my venetian glass pen (yes, I write by hand!!), my essential oil blend ‘creativity’ by devarikha. I listen a lot to Daft Punk when I write; their sounds really inspire me.

--If you could have any superpower what would you choose?
My friends and I talk about this a lot and I always have to take the high road: My superpower would be to fulfill wishes which of course then also means I could wish for any superpower I want….

--Besides writing, what do you like to do in your free time?
I like to watch movies, play video games, hang with friends and I love to be creative in the kitchen. I find cooking to be very grounding.

--Is there anything else you want to add or say to your readers?
Never stop believing in magic! No matter what others say, it exists and is as real as you allow it to be.
