SEP - FEATURED AUTHOR - Janice Sims


SORMAG: Please give the readers a brief bio on you the person and the writer.

JANICE SIMS:
I'm a native Floridian who has been a published writer since 1996. I've never wanted to do anything else. My books range from traditional romances to Science-fiction romances, to romances with a touch of mystery and suspense.

SORMAG: Tell us about your current book?

SIMS: My current book is called Waiting for You and it's the first book in a trilogy I'm writing for BET/Arabesque. The Bryants of Glen Ellen, California are winemakers. Eric and Simone Bryant have three grown children, Erica, Jason and Franklyn. Each of the siblings will get their own book. Waiting for You is Erica's. Constant Craving, Franklyn's book, comes out next year.

SORMAG: What would you like your readers to take away from your book?

SIMS: I would like them to be entertained. Period. I hope that the story will entice them so much that they will barely be able to put it down. Authors always like to hear that. LOL!

Ultimately, I want them to fall in love with the characters and look forward to the next book in the trilogy, Constant Craving.

SORMAG: What resources on the net have been helpful in your writing?

SIMS: I'm a Google girl! Whenever I need to find information on any given subject I go straight to Google, and I usually find an abundance of riches. Love it!

Hi Janice,

Thanks for being our guest this week.

I was curious. Have you seen Sideways? or my favorite movie A Walk In The Clouds. My favorite scene is Crush The Grapes.

I thought of these movies when I heard about your book. Its in my BTR pile.

Missouri has a few vineyards. I'm not a wine drinker but I want to vist them.

Hi LaShaunda,

I've seen both Sideways and A Walk in the Clouds. I saw Sideways just a few months ago on DVD. A Walk in the Clouds was my favorite due to Keanu Reeves being in it. I'm a fan. I can't say I learned much about wine from either of the films, but they were nice to look at. I was inspired to write about a family of African American winemakers because I happened to read an article about a woman in California who started a winery. She was African American. Then, I started doing research and discovered that there were about ten African American owned wineries in California alone. I'm sure there are more all over the world, but I was interested in California. Then, a friend of mine suggested a book about wine that I found intriguing, and my interest grew. The whole history of wine is fascinating. Practically every culture makes wine in some form. My granddaddy used to make wine out of grapes that grew on his farm in Florida. So I have memories of tasting his homemade wine when I was just a kid. Just a sip. :o)
