Have You Met Jessie Tyson?

Have you met author Jessie Tyson? If not, you're missing out. She's an amazing lady! She's dropped by for a short chat, so settle back in a comfy chair, sip a cup of tea and enjoy her interview. ~ Dellani

What genre do you write in?
I write fiction, with paranormal elements. Not the scary kind or the fangs for the memory romance type, just stories with a paranormal touch. 

Would you consider writing something else?
Yes, I’m leaning toward writing funny stories to help people laugh in this world quickly losing cheer.  I already know I’d add a strange colored ghost or two.

Are you a pen and paper author or do you use a computer to write?
Computer wins hands down.

The house is on fire, which do you save, your laptop or your book collection?
Neither. In any emergency, if push came to shove I’d save my cats then my lap-top.

Do you feel an affinity to any particular period of history? And do you ever use elements of it in your writing? Yes. It’s strange. I begin writing about modern times, then the story moves into the past. It’s weird. 

Have you ever given up on a writing project and why?
I began a story 30 years ago. Yes, 30. I haven’t given up on it. Life gets in the way so I put them all on hold. I don’t give up or give in. (grin)

Have you ever found yourself, in regular daily activity, thinking like one of your characters?
Only when I am character developing. 

What's an interview question you've never been asked, but would like to be? Answer it.
What is your next movie going to be titled? The answer is “Sowulinkea.”

How old were you when you realized you wanted to be a writer?
About 9 years of age. Thing is we have to live normal lives and writing, which was only a dream back then, had to take second place to schooling and then employment. Now I can relax and get stuck into the plot. I’ve even modeled some of real life into my plots.

Where do you get your character names from?
I get their names from the people I talk with during the week. Sometimes from dreams, and sometimes they just pop into my thoughts.

Do you listen to music while you write?
No. I usually have the TV on for background noise to drown out the sound of my kitties digging in their litter box.

If so, what sorts of music inspire you most?
Music by Med Goodall, Denis Quinn and other New Age musical geniuses

Do you blog or are you on any social sites? If so, please include the addresses so your fans can find you.
I’m habitually on Twitter, Facebook and Goodreads in that order.

Jessie, thank you so much for coming to visit today! It's been lovely having this chat. ~ Dellani
