Meet author Jane Daly

Jane is addicted to coffee, purple pens, and her husband, not necessarily in that order. A self-proclaimed introvert, she enjoys the solitude of riding shotgun in Rigsby, her 37-foot motor home. But when they pull into a new campground, her favorite thing is to make new friends and find hangouts featuring local musicians. Her fantasy involves writing lyrics for country music songs and listening to them on the radio. In the meantime, she’ll stick to writing novels. And seeing as much of the country as possible.

Tell us about your newest book.

It’s all about secrets. When we reveal our secrets and bring them into the light, they lose power over us.

What inspired you to write Broken Silence?

I wrote Broken Silence because when we hide our past sins from others, it puts up barriers to having deep and lasting relationships. Confessing our struggles to one another helps us grow.

What genre do you focus on?

I write contemporary women’s fiction because that’s what I like to read. I have two nonfiction titles in publication too, but my heart is in creating stories.

Why do you write?

I’ve wanted to write ever since I first got hold of the Nancy Drew series. Reading is my go-to relaxation place. I want to give my readers the same sense of satisfaction in reading a well-paced novel.

Who is your main character, and how did you choose that name?

Jinxi is such an unusual name. I had a bank customer with that name and I immediately knew she would be in a book.

What is your work schedule like when you’re writing a book?

I spend a lot of time writing ‘in my head’ before actually putting fingers on my keyboard. Once I sit down to begin, I have a good idea where I’m going to start and where the story will finish. Along the way, the characters let me know where we should go. Sounds weird to anyone who doesn’t write!

What is the hardest part of being an author?

The solitude! It’s hard feeling like you’re completely alone on this writing journey. That’s why I love to go to conferences and attend Zoom meetings with other authors.

What is your favorite pastime?

One of my favorite pastimes is to walk around the campground where hubby and I are staying and chat with people. Most people are super friendly. They’re on vacation and have plenty of time to talk. They’re sitting outside their motor home or trailer in a camp chair, just hanging out and enjoying nature. Conversations are easy to initiate. “I see from your license plate you’re from… Where are you headed next?”

Do you have other books? We’d love to know.

Thank you for asking. The Girl in the Cardboard Box is a stand-alone novel dealing with adoption, foster care, and abortion, and has an adorable feral child. Broken, A Story of Redemption is the book that comes before Broken Silence. The third in the series, Broken Trust, will be released next year.

What are you working on now?

I’m working on the first round of edits for my next release, Where Is My Sister that will release in November.
