Q & A with Ben Jackson

Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

Hi, thanks for having me! I’m an Indie Author, currently living in Australia and Canada. I work in partnership with my wife, Sam. We are currently married and living in a long-distance relationship. We both help write the books, with Sam being the genius behind the formatting and publishing, while I focus a lot on social media.

What do you do when you are not writing?

Well, I have a full-time job in Australia as an aluminum welder, working in the boat building industry. I also work of a night as a freelance writer and ghostwriter for other authors and businesses.

Do you write full-time or part-time?

part -time, although sometimes it very much feels like a full-time gig!

When did you first start writing and when did you finish your first book?

I think I started my first book in 2015, but I didn’t publish that book until almost the end of 2016. I lost a lot of ‘The Before’ because of a laptop issue.

What got you interested in writing?
I have always been an avid reader and writing seemed like a natural extension of that.

How would you describe your style of writing to someone that has never read your work?
The way I write my books would probably horrify other authors, I just start writing them! No plan, no outline, no plot or character development lol! The way the books end up would be similar to any other book.

What is/are your book(s) about?

My favorite books are my children’s books. They are about a little boy called Timmy and his imaginary friend The Little Fart. They go on adventures and we try to include a good message in each book about friendship etc.

What books/authors have influenced your writing?

I love Wilbur Smith, Leon Uris, and Bernard Cornwall.

What are your thoughts on good/bad reviews?

I enjoy reading all reviews. If they offer constructive criticism that’s fantastic, but when people slam your book for no particular reason, or because they didn’t read the description it’s hard.

How many books have you written? Which is your favorite and why?

Nine and Two coloring books. We are about to release two more in the next month. The Day MY Fart Followed Me To Hockey and How To Survive The Zombie Apocalypse are my two favorites.

Is there some place special you like to be when you write?

I just like to watch Netflix or movies why I write. As long as I have the television going, I’m happy!

Other than writing, what do you have a passion for?

I enjoy fishing and spending time with my wife, Sam. When you are apart for long periods of time, it makes the time which you spend together that much more special.

Do you have any projects in the works? If so, can you share a little of your current work with us?

The Day My Fart Followed Me To Soccer, and a book about a caterpillar that can do anything! Both should be released in the next month!
