JoeyPinkney.com Exclusive Interview
5 Minutes, 5 Questions With…
Janie De Coster, author of What My Sister Didn’t Know
(G Street Publishing)
My book tells a story about a powerful emotion that can break the bonds of any commitment. No it is not love…It’s Lust.
Joey Pinkney: Where did you get the inspiration to write What My Sister Didn’t Know?
Janie De Coster: My inspiration comes from real-life experiences as well as what’s in today’s media.
JP: What sets What My Sister Didn’t Know apart from other books in the same genre?
JD: I try to make my characters as real as the person reading the book. I give characters real lives and problems to which my readers can relate. I don’t want to just tell a story. I want my readers to feel the story and be able to walk in the character’s shoes.
JP: As an author, what are the keys to your success that led to What My Sister Didn’t Know getting out to the public?
JD: The keys to my success has been my support system. My family is my rock. They have helped me from day one in this journey. Even my grandchildren pitched in with promoting of What My Sister Didn’t Know.
I must give a shout out to my friends and co-workers who have been my one of my biggest fans.
JP: As an author, what is your writing process? How long did it take you to start and finish What My Sister Didn’t Know?
JD: My writing process starts with me rising early on Saturday mornings when all is quiet in my house. I can get quite a few chapters done with a cup of coffee by my side. It took me about nine months to write What My Sister Don’t Know.
JP: What’s next for Janie De Coster?
JD: I have another novel called Broken Commandments with Parker Publishing coming out in November of this year.
