SC: Hello and welcome to my blog, J.R. Gray. It’s lovely to have you here today.
J.R.G: Thank you so much for having me, Sam. It’s a pleasure. I’ve been a fan for awhile so it’s amazing to be here.
SC: Thank you *blushes*
Please tell is about yourself.
I am a 29 year old dominant who enjoys writing my characters into bad situations and then throwing rocks at them until they fight their way out. I’m an exercise junkie which is partly because I’m a masochist.
SC: Oh, I’m intrigued, tell me more 🙂
Do you write full time?
I wish. One day I will. Although my mind never switches off. There are ideas everywhere and I never stop writing them down. My phone is filled with notes about plots.
SC: Never give up. I almost did, and I’m so pleased I didn’t.
What got you started writing?
I’ve been writing since I was eight. I’ve always needed to get the stories out of my head. It took me a long time to gain the courage to show anyone my work, but when I did I was encouraged to not only continue, but also give publishing a go.
SC: Excellent 🙂
What words would best describe your books?
Angst and passion.
SC: You’ve got to check these books out.
What are you working on now?
At the moment I’m working on werewolves. They’re something I have long had a passion for and the story is telling itself. I like to diversify with my writing, always trying something new. I also have another contemporary BDSM story in the works as well as a piece about cops.
SC: It’s fantastic to write about what we’re passionate about. Everything you’ve said has me intrigued.
Tell us about your book.
Veil of Scars is an emotional roller coaster, one I rode while writing it and I hope my readers do as well. It’s about a guy who falls in love with his best friend, although things are never that simple.
Steven is tall, dark, and damaged. He doesn’t let anyone close, comfortable on the outside of normal life where he can hide his scars behind a wall so high that nothing gets through…except them. Despite a childhood marred with black and blue, he’s survived and moved in with his two best friends, Sam and Charlie.
Life should get better, but it was Sam who held him when the dark threatened to swallow him whole, Sam who gave him a place that felt like home, and Sam who knew every scar and every broken place.
And it’s all been taken away with Charlie sharing Sam’s bed.
Three to five interesting facts about yourself or your writing. This can be your series, characters or even down to what you do in your down time.
I enjoy humor in all of the books I read so no matter the subject I try and add some into my books. Guy’s just aren’t as sexy if they don’t have a sense of humor, even alpha males!
I’m a pilot, so my feet aren’t always on the ground, so to speak
I like to write damaged characters, and feel their pain. However I also like the strong ones, both male and female who kick ass.
I use a lot of personal feelings and experience in my work, so my characters always feel like they are based in reality, which they are. I like to work in the grit of real life as well as the highs of a happily ever after so my readers keep the stories with them long after they are finished.
