F.J. Blooding

NYT Bestselling Author

I've always had a wild imagination. As I struggled through a difficult childhood, I escaped through my worlds. I think that's the biggest reason my worlds are so large. I needed a safe place to meet people. Pretend was the only place I could find.

I'm an introvert, but I'm a relator which is the reason for the forums. I want to relate to you, my readers. I want to hear your stories. I want to learn more about you.

I now live in beautiful Alaska with my husband and co-author, his twin and his wife, their two kids, hubby's part-time kids, and a slew of pets. The number is constantly changing, especially now that we've got chickens--who aren't technically pets because they're going to be delicious.

I want you to be taken away with me. So, sit back, grab a drink, and relax. I've got you.

Now, let's go!

Writing

I am actually inspired by helping other people - and not just writers. I have this whole other business, Real Indie Author, where I help authors become sustainably successful authors. That fills a hole in my soul, but helping normal people stand up keeps me writing.

Reading

I deeply enjoy Jim Butcher, but I've also really enjoyed watching authors like Jen L. Grey, R.J. Blain, Faith Hunter, Tina Glasneck, Dannika Dark, K.F. Breene, McKenzie Hunter, and so many more rising up through the ranks. My phone is filled with amazing talent and great stories.

Painting

I love doing graphic design. I love working on covers and wallpaper art. I'll sometimes just do character art for the fun of it. It helps to keep my site looking gorgeous, but when I'm stuck in the writing, I turn to painting and I can usually get myself writing pretty quickly again afterward.

Research

I love-love-love research. I think this is the coolest part of my job as a writer and one of the reasons I'm so tickled I'm finally able to do this full-time. I get to research all the topics I love. One of the first things I do when starting a new series is research and right now? I'm researching physics. *eyebrow waggle* Delicious!

Photographing

I now live in the most challenging state in the U.S., Alaska. However, with that said, it is probably the most gorgeous state ever. I love going on adventures in the wilderness and taking pictures. I do have a fancy camera, but I now just use my phone. This summer, I will be trying to go to as many different areas of this state as I can.
