Author Interview--Clara Bowman-Jahn

Hello All, Today, I'd like to introduce to you--Author Clara Bowman-Jahn
Clara Bowman-Jahn worked as a registered nurse for thirty two years finally trading that job for her true love, writing. Clara’s short stories have been published in two anthologies,”Campainer Challenges 2011,” and “The ‘I’ Word.” She is also the author of “Annie’s Special Day” a children’s picture book.
When Clara is not writing, she does volunteer work for a local elementary school and her church. She also likes taking long walks with her husband, blogging, and reading books. She is a member of the Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators, Pennwriters, Bethesda Writer’s Center and Round Hill Writer’s Group. She lives in rural Loudoun County, Virginia with her brilliant husband, and two cats. She is the proud mother of two wonderful grown sons and a grandmother to a delightful grandson.

What are you working on now? 
A longer project than picture books, a book length project.  

What process in writing is hardest for you? 

What process in writing is the most enjoyable for you? 
Just writing is most enjoyable. Free writing without care of typos or grammar. The first draft is always the most fun. 
Are you pantser or a plotter?  
In this recent project I will definitely outline. The panster is taking time off.
How did you come up with your storyline, or what inspired you to write Annie's Special Day?   
I was sick in bed early in the morning listening to the birds wake up and I wanted to have a character listen to it. To hear it so to speak. So there came my idea. 

When is your favorite time to write? 
Early in the morning before my husband gets up.

What is your favorite snack while writing? 
It takes both hands to type or write my journal so I don't eat but do drink sodas. My most favorite is Zero cherry coke. Yummy.
