Author Interview: J.A. Redmerski
Which do you love more, beginning to write a book or finishing one? Please explain why.
A few years ago my answer would’ve been that I loved starting a new book because I loved the journey I went through to get to the end. But I think over time I’ve grown to enjoy the finish line more because it means I get to start on something new – I have so many stories to tell! But I guess that’s the same thing as saying I love the beginning?
In THE MOMENT OF LETTING GO, Luke is into extreme activities like cliff diving and base jumping—what’s the most extreme thing you’ve ever done?
Probably cliff diving – as hard as that might be to believe considering my fear of heights. It took me nearly thirty minutes of running to the edge, stopping because I chickened out, and going back to try again, before I finally jumped. It was high. And it was scary. And I had bruises on my body for a week afterward, but I did it.
Do you have a favorite quote/scene from the book?
My favorite scene would have to be the one where Luke breaks down in Sienna’s arms. Emotional scenes like that one come from my core, and I feel like I connect with them more intimately.
What are you looking forward to most this summer?
My long-awaited throw-everything-in-the-Jeep-and-go drive to the Grand Canyon – though it’s beginning to look like I’ll be putting that off until the fall, or next summer.
