Angelina Jameson is a writer of Regency Romance. She and I have many mutual friends and we see each other very often on Facebook. I knew that she would be a good guest just by way of fitting in here with us as a writer, a romance writer, (for most of us), as a cat lover, and for The Hound, a fellow Air Force veteran.
Thank you for having me here today, Tonette. Hello everyone!
Your interest in the regency period of England grew from your time there within the military, right? What about this period captured you?
I think I always loved reading about nobility but never thought about the Regency era until I was stationed in England. Visiting manor houses every weekend sparked a desire to know more about the people who lived in those houses. I like the civility and formality of the Regency era.
Knowing how Regency readers are such sticklers for details, how do you manage your research?
I believe in triple-checking my facts and asking questions. When I needed to know something about the Thames River Police I emailed the River Police museum in London. The director emailed back a response. You never know if you don’t ask. I also have many friends who have degrees in British History. My science degree isn’t very helpful.
Do you see developing new character/storylines or are you going to continue with those you have already published?
I have a new series coming out and at least one more in my head. Ideas are always popping up, but I can’t get to them fast enough.
Do you write in any other genres?
I have a contemporary paranormal that I hope to publish someday. Right now, all I have out are Regencies.
When did you first get the writing bug?
In 4th grade. I wrote some really awful poetry.
Angelina, how does a girl born in Las Vegas, who went to college in Florida, end up living in Alaska?
Thanks to the USAF I’ve lived in several states and England. When it was time for my husband to retire from the service the best job for him was in Alaska. We wanted to live somewhere exciting that we had never visited before. We’re weird.
Please tell us about life for you in Alaska. Are you in a city, or is your place more rural? I imagine life for you growing up in Vegas, and the situation for your fine-looking sons growing up in Alaska, have had major differences.
Thank you for complimenting my boys. I live ten minutes outside of Wasilla. You would think we were out in the country from the pictures I share, but we are close to town. We love the cold and snow. It is like living in a national park and the people are the friendliest I’ve ever encountered. When I visit family in Vegas I can’t believe I grew up in that heat.
Do you find like-minded writers near you, or do you do more of your socialization/networking with them online, (as I do)?
I run into few Regency writers nearby. If I socialize with writers maybe once a month, they all seem to write paranormal. Like you, I also find social media a great resource for hanging out with other authors.
Do you have a specific place and/or times when you write?
I always write in a quiet place. It is a bad habit, but I like quiet to get into my zone. My Regency historical zone. I write whenever I get time away from my noisy men.
Angelina, is there anything more that you would like to tell our readers?
Thank you if you have read this far. Best wishes to you in all your writing endeavors.
Thank you so much for being my guest, Angelina Jameson. Please let everyone know how they can learn more about you and your works.
