J.M Bach believes that home is where the heart is. She’s moved six time and lived on both coasts. She now resides colorful Colorado with her parents, two sisters, three dogs, and as many books as she can find space for. She is a third-generation writer; both her mother and her mother’s mother are published authors.
From an early age, J.M. believed the best stories had a bit of magic. When she’s not writing, you find her in the barn surrounded by horses. She is also an avid superhero fan and is always waiting for the next big superhero movie to debut.
I have been writing for about three years, just short stories that my mom and Nana read. They were the people who inspired me to write because they were both such great storytellers.
I was thinking about how to modernize it a little and I had just finished watching a Supernatural episode so I thought, why not not make them demon hunters? It’s a cool spin and I love to make girl characters who can kick butt.
I would choose Narnia because even if I’m not magical, like the main characters, I get to see a lot of magical creatures. My world is pretty normal looks wise, the anything thing not normal are the characters.
I was the most excited by actually being chosen by people who actually write for a living. It’s really cool to be able to do my own twist on a fairy tale as well.
Jasmine and Aladdin was probably my favorite fairy tale growing up.
Paranormal/Fantasy is my favorite genre by a long shot. I think it’s my favorite because I love the idea of a world with magic in it.
It gives an escape and intrigues people with the magic of it all.
I honestly have no idea, I have almost thirty story ideas on my phone. Any of those would probably work.
Camp Half-Blood from the Percy Jackson series because that might make the rest of the series real too, which would be awesome.
It’s okay to be nervous about letting people read your stuff, I certainly am. Don’t let it stop you from doing what you want, you never know what will happen. I’ve learned that story ideas come from everywhere and your fans, be they your family or friends, will always be there for you.
