How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
The Jamais Vu Papers came together as a collaboration between the two authors and all of the participants. Everybody shaped the story line. Neither JVP nor VIEWS fits very well into any genre category, although the reprint of The Jamais Vu Papers has won awards for visionary fiction.
Wim Coleman and Pat Perrin have collaborated on their writing for about 25 years and stayed happily married all that time. For 13 years they lived in the beautiful Mexican town of San Miguel de Allende, where they created and managed a scholarship program for at-risk students under the auspices of San Miguel PEN. Their novel Mayan Interface draws on Mexican myth and tradition.
The authors also wrote the thriller Cole Perriman’s Terminal Games, and their articles and essays appear in collections about creativity and storytelling. Their highly-praised books for young readers include award-winning historical fiction, two fantasy series, books of plays, and a “nonfiction” book about unicorns.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The stories/inter-vus in Jamais Vu VIEWS were written for a newsletter and a book called The Jamais Vu Papers. The highly experimental novel was originally published by Harmony Books (Crown) in 1991. It was well reviewed and maintained a following over the years. A new edition was published by Plays on Ideas in 2010. The JVP is too visual to put into an ebook, so we pulled these sections out especially for ebook readers. We also added a lot of material from our newsletters that went out to subscribers before the book was published.
