BIOGRAPHY

Janina Carol (J.C.) Seal
I’m from Germany, from the beautiful Black Forest area. I live in a small townhouse with my loving husband, my wonderful teenage daughter and my eighteen years old tomcat. To pay my bills, I work part time as a lab technician in cancer research. I only started writing in October 2018, but loved to read all my life. Maybe you wonder, why does someone from Germany write in English? I still remember the first English book I ever read. Staying in the USA as an exchange student when I was sixteen, I picked a random book at a public library, ending up with “Dragonsong” by Anne McCaffrey. It was the beginning of my passion for stories reaching beyond the confines of the mortal human world, and also the beginning of my love for a language that’s so much more expressive than my native tongue. When finally risking the step from reader to writer, the language was out of question. Feel free to join me in my world of fantasy, paranormal, adventure, with a bit of romance. When I’m not writing, I like playing computer games or watching crime series on TV. I’m also part of the parents’ council at my daughter’s school and a committee member of the garden club around the corner.

      • Nothing at all. All my main characters are male, throughout the whole Angels-and-Demons trilogy. When I write, it’s like slipping into the character’s skin. Male or female doesn’t matter, it’s just a physical aspect. What counts when writing a character is the heart and soul, the actions and decisions the character makes, the journey he is going on, the challenges he has to face.

      • I wrote it, so certain aspects of my life are definitely wrought into the book in many places. Writing a book is baring part of your soul to strangers you’ve never met, and probably never will.

      • Honestly, I never thought about writing until that one day in October 2018. Suddenly there was some crazy idea in my head, spurring me to write a fan-fiction short story, “Blood Moon” in Aimee Easterling’s werewolf universe. She had a friend check it out after I sent it to her. It was declared good enough to share. I put it up on AO3 and she actually shared it on Facebook as well as in her newsletter. Then, the next crazy thing happened. She asked me if I was interested in co-authoring a short story. I agreed. In November 2018, my pen-name J.C. Seal was created, and in February 2019, “Pool Party” was published. By then, I had also started writing “Fallen Angels”, my first own book, in my own universe. I have been writing ever since. It’s nothing you can simply stop again. The words just appear in my head, the story playing itself out in like watching a movie. I have to write them down, because bottling up results in a splitting headache and a very grumpy me. Not funny for anyone.

    • Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?

      • I know I’m repeating myself here, but it can’t be said often enough. Believe in yourself, in your vision. Don’t stop writing because others tell you it’s not worth it. Don’t despair when you are smiled upon, when your “antics are tolerated”. Find the right group of people to support you, people who share your dreams, who help you make them come true. I was lucky I did.
