How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
Writing for this particular mystery genre is very hard. I’m never sure about whether a joke is going to go over or just seem too cold. I’m never sure if something is graphic necessity or just gruesome unnecessary details. I use a lot of beta readers for these books. From the moment I start, I have someone “reading over my shoulder”, so to speak.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Write, write, write. Don’t aspire, do it. If you are constantly aspiring to be a writer, you’ll never get there. And make sure you love it. Writing requires more than just dedication, it requires true passion
Hadena James began writing at the age of eight. As a teenager, she had several short stories published in literary magazines. She completed writing her first novel at the age of 17.
Hadena graduated from the University of Missouri with a degree in European History with minors in German and Russian studies. She has always wanted to be a writer so she also took several classes in creative writing.
Hadena’s primary literary genre is action/thriller. She currently writes two series, both use action/thriller. “The Brenna Strachan Series” uses fantasy and the “Dreams & Reality Series” uses murder mystery as its secondary genre. She continues to explore and expand her writing and hopes to soon produce a comedic action/thriller.
When she isn’t busy writing or running her business, Hadena enjoys playing in a steel-tip dart league. She also loves to travel throughout North America and Europe. Her favorite cities are Chicago, Illinois and Berlin, Germany. She is an avid reader, reading everything from the classics like Jane Austen to modern writers like Terry Pratchett. One of her all-time favorite books is “Good Omens” by Neil Gaimen and Terry Pratchett. She writes all of her books while listening to music and the bands tend to get “honorable mentions” within the pages.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have always wanted to write a character that was as flawed as the bad guys they chase. Aislinn’s sociopathic tendencies were perfect. Using a sociopath to think and track down serial killers just felt like a good mix.
