What is your latest release and what genre is it? Jumping Ship (An introductory novella to the Island Hopping Series)
Quick description: The year was nineteen seventy-five. Barren couple, Pearl and Edward Riley stumbled upon a newborn baby girl. Her cries could only be heard by a true mother, which Pearl immediately became. Bundled up with their new child, they discovered a parcel of artifacts and a scribbled note that read: Sakkara. Pregnant seamstress, Petrina Dugal, became a runaway at the age of twenty-six. She ran away from a brutish husband, Roger, and a well-loved South American home in Georgetown, Guyana; at the heart of her rebellion – an enigmatic lover named Michael Chen. Pet and Mikey, as they became affectionately known, allowed love to blossom in front of her police officer husband and an intrusive community. Were they not aware of the dangers? Or did the pursuit of love trump obligations?
Sakkara Riley grew up with two loving parents – adoptive parents to be exact. She never knew the circumstances surrounding her discovery, until the age of sixteen. She embarks on a journey.
Janice was born in Guyana, South America and migrated to the USA in 1980. Although her citizenship certificate now reads the United States of America, she considers herself a citizen of the world. Sure, she has not physically been around the world and back, but she’s travelled in her mind and dreams. Janice enjoys distinct characters that she can love or hate, characters whom she can form alliances with or characters that she can swear off and despise.
What are you working on now?
At any given time, I’m always working on several different novels. I’m working on the Island Hopping Series, and hope to release the next book shortly.
Janice’s reading recommendation:
I adore any and every single book written by Paulo Coelho. I believe I’ve read every English version book that he has released. If I need to select a specific one to recommend, I don’t believe that I could do so. Nevertheless, The Alchemist has been on the NY Times Bestsellers list for ages, so that would be a great start. I would also like to add that By the river Piedra, I sat down and wept is a gem.
