Just a gal who loves to write!


Background Information

 January Bain hails from Ashern, Manitoba, Canada. Married to the love of her life, her husband Don, she has combined her love of romance with her interest in vampires to produce the Forever Series of books. She teaches English and Computer courses during the day and writes in every spare moment. She hopes to touch your heart with FOREVER MAN, FOREVER WOMAN, FOREVER CLAN and FOREVER ANGEL.

 

At what age did you discover you were a writer?

I’m not sure.  I remember writing poems in high school where the teacher read them to the other teachers in the staff room. He was very encouraging, but our family was always on the move, and we were in a different province before I knew it. The book of poems has unfortunately been lost during one of the moves. I still regret that as it would be nice now to look back at them. I was a very intense book worm as a child and nothing has changed.

 

What genre do you write in?

I’ve written in different genres: paranormal romance,  science fiction and fantasy.

 

 Where do you write?

At home and at school during lunch hours, on a PC.

 

When do you write?

Night time mostly.

 

What would you regard as your first success?

Having my poetry admired at a young age.

 

What is the most necessary attribute for a writer?

Persistence at getting down into words a picture that will be transferable to others in the same way I envision it.

 

What was your breakthrough?Working with Gurmeet Mattu has been an enormous breakthrough for me. I’ve so appreciated another human being taking the considerable time and effort to help put together the best book humanly possible.

What are your writing ambitions?

I’ve had a number of comments that Forever Man would make a great movie! I want to continue writing as much as possible and get my books out there. If I cannot be an immortal vampire, I can be a writer of books left to posterity.

 

What is your best writing skill?

Perfectionism. I will work at re-writing scenes as many times as necessary to get the words exactly right. A wise man once told, ‘the art is in the rewriting’. And that has turned out to be very true for me.

 

What advice would you give a new writer?

If it’s as important to you as breathing, do it.

 

Should writers try to get an agent?

That’s up to you. It works well for some writers.

 

Have you had any professional training as a writer?

My post bachelor degree was in the humanities, with a specialty in literature.

 

Do you have a word count you try to achieve every day?

Most days it’s in excess of one thousand words.

 

Question most asked of writers, where do you get your inspiration?

I like to live in my imagination with imaginary people, so it comes quite natural to me. I like the control that brings, and I like the surprises that brings!

 

 

Additional Information

I've written so many new books in the last few years. Almost a dozen titles are on there way through the pipeline!
