Monday Spotlight: Jacqueline Paige

It did not come the way I thought it would.

My plots seem to take on a life of their own.

I knew I wanted to write paranormal romance so that’s what I started out doing and then characters with evil purpose appeared between paragraphs and events that I hadn’t even thought of in any way shape or form were suddenly in front of me on the page.

Magic seemed to be something I needed to put on the page, Witches of the modern age doing fantastic feats.  I thought this would be my contribution to the paranormal genre but it seemed my muse needed just a little bit more than that.  In one case my witches needed to stop a killer.  No one could have been more shocked to read that on the page in what started as a touching scene of bringing my characters together.  

After that I strayed into curses with my witches and I’m still in awe that a curse is that hard to solve and break.  My characters have their work cut out for them.  Of course a cursed pirate ghost ended up on the first page claiming the main male character in another story that came out of my very unpredictable imagination.  

Where could this possibly lead to I had to wonder when I sat down and started writing Twice Cursed.  

Obviously the name came after the plot appeared on the page.  On the final page of the final chapter I sat back and thought of the adventure my characters had taken me on.  

I am delighted with Maddy and Colin’s story – and of course with Whiskers' involvement as well.  I didn’t expect many to be intrigued by my own tale, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
