Interview & Giveaway: Jessica Roe

        Born and raised in England. When I'm not writing, I can usually be found trying to keep up with my very lovable but incredibly crazy daughter. In between those two things, I try to fit in as much reading as I can. Oh, and sometimes I even get around to doing chores.
          Undone (The Guardians #1) was my début novel, released April 2014. I'm currently working on its sequel, United. 

Favorite reads?
          TOO many lol. I'm a huge book lover. My most recent favourite is Halo by Frankie Rose. I do have a list of recommended reads on my blog which should definitely be checked out – there are some amazing authors on there.

Inspirations for the book?
          For Undone, my original inspiration was really about good versus evil, but also about how the good guys can be flawed and the bad guys can love just as fiercely as the good ones. I always think villains are much more interesting than the good guys, because they usually have a lot more depth. I'm weird that way.

Did you know you wanted to be an author when you were little?
          Always. I went through phases of wanting to be other things too – air hostess, English teacher, lorry driver, popstar (lol) – but writing was always what I wanted to do the most.

Any Pet Peeves?
          Litterbugs. So annoying.

Chocolate or Peanut Butter?
          Peanut Butter. Every. Single. Time.

The weirdest thing you've ever done?
          Hmm. Once when I was a teenager and still lived at home I thought it would be hilarious to get up in the middle of the night and rearrange all the furniture in the house so that my mum would think it was a ghost when she woke up...She was not impressed.

Is there a soundtrack to the book/Favorite music?
          Yes. It can be found here

Do you need anything to write?  
          Nothing but quiet – which is a rare thing when you have a small, very excitable child lol.

How long do you write on any average day?
          Usually whenever I have a spare moment during the day, and then a few hours (3-4) at night when my daughter is asleep.

Give us the number one reason to read your book.
           Because it has a little something for everybody – action, adventure, fantasy, romance. And not to mention bad guys with big hearts and good guys who have absolutely no idea what they're getting themselves into.

Author Info:

Nicky is trying to be a good guy...All Gable wants it to be bad.

Fresh out of prison and down on his luck, Nicky is trying to be a good guy. With a past overrun by darkness and shadows, he's willing to do whatever is takes to change. He just never dreamed his road to redemption would open his eyes to a world full of magic and mystical beings.
All Gable wants is to be bad. Because only a bad person would do the things she's done and not even care. She's not looking to be saved, not from her world, not from herself. Not even by Nicky.
At sixteen, Nicky and Gable were in love, but eight years apart is a long time and people change. After the tragedy that once ripped Gable from Nicky's world, they never expected to see each other again, especially not on the opposing sides of a fight between good and evil.
They will rescue each other, they will betray each other, they will be undone.
