Author Interview – Jessica Kristie

Can you tell us about your main character? Elani Benjamin is a talented young lady who is forced into a difficult situation where she must decide to give up and give in, or keep going. Something we all can relate to.

How did you develop your plot and characters? I did a lot of research on human trafficking as well as read many survivor stories and connected with local non-profits. All of these aspects helped me shape and mold my characters and storyline.

How much of the book is realistic? Most of it if not all is realistic and based on basic human condition and response and survivor stories that I’ve read.

Have you included a lot of your life experiences, even friends, in the plot? The basic emotion and reaction is based on some personal experience, but the book is all fiction.

What do you do to unwind and relax? Quiet. All I need is quiet. 

What are your current writing projects now? I have a psychological thriller that is now complete that I’m very excited about. I believe it really highlights my growth as a writer and allowed me to write in a genre I really enjoy reading. I hope to have it out early next year.

Have you developed a specific writing style? I believe I have, although it is not something I can easily pin-point myself. With poetry it is easy to see my style. I think some of that flows over into my novel writing which adds to my personal voice.
