“I began writing The Birthright Series three years ago. It took me a year to write. I wrote a chapter every Tuesday and after a year, the book was done. Then two years, 16 edits and 50 rejections later, I’m published! Piece of Cake!
I was on a flight to Costa Rica with my husband and I started pondering the idea of what it would be like if people started getting divine gifts but had no context for them. It was a really intriguing idea and I came up with the four main characters there and then. They took over from there and I was just along for the ride.”
Jacci explores different methods of reaching young readers, and in one of her 2014 efforts, she wrote Shipwrecked, a book that was written with school children through a program called EpiFiction. It was written in seven weeks with the students voting to influence the direction of the story. You can find it on Amazon or Barnes and Nobel, along with her other books.
