Alert on: Jacqui Jacoby, A Collection of Dead Men Stories

Travis Ricci, Ian Stuart, Jason Sullivan, Quinn Nelson and Evan Harris—before the Dead Men debuted in Dead Men Play the Game, these five guys had lives which took them across the Pacific Northwest, making their own history which could be no one's, but their own.
          They faced funny, they faced sadness, and they made sure each one of them was standing when the sun finally rose each day.

 What is the most difficult part of your artistic process?
Editing.  I can't spell to save my life and my editor will assure you my grammar is about the same.

 Does your family support your career as a writer? 

Yes, very much.  Whether it is travel to someplace for research, trying a new dish I might try or just being there when we celebrate the new book.

If you had to do something differently as a child or teenager to become a better writer as an adult, what would you do?

This is a question I never answer.  I never look back and ask "What if I had done something different then ..." I learned what I did, I did what I did and I live here now.  I will use what I learned and hope that tomorrow maybe I would have learned something new.

How long on average does it take you to write a book?

Three to six month.  Sometimes a year. Depends on the book: Bystander was written only in 16 days; but  Feel the Heat, I started that (got about half way) about two years ago.
