D. L. Jackson is a writer of urban fantasy, science fiction, military romance and erotic romance. She loves to incorporate crazy plot twists, comedy and the unexpected into her worlds. As a U.S. Army veteran, she naturally adores men in uniform and feels the world could always use more. She does her part by incorporating as many sexy soldiers in her novels as she can. When she isn’t writing or running the roads, you can often find her online chatting with her peers and readers. Grab a cup of iced coffee, pull up your virtual chair and say hi. She loves emails and blog visits from her readers. http://authordljackson.com
Eggnog or Mimosas? Are you old enough to drink? Eggnog. Yes.
We’re also taking pictures with Santa, did you bring a gift for him? (Maybe a new release or a pretty book cover…) My newest release, This Endris Night.
One party of a lifetime.
One secret a century old which could end it all.
Shiya, a Yupik supermodel, travels to Alaska in pretense of attending a party where she’ll find the man of her dreams, but her real intent is to lure the man of her nightmares to where she can finally end a deadly game of cat and mouse.
Gunnar is on Earth for one reason—to recover the wreckage of a Doppelganger crash, but recovering the ship isn’t easy. The debris is scattered for miles, throughout a resort and human settlements. In order to get closer, he agrees to a date and finds himself face to face with a Terran woman who doesn’t know her genetics are from his world or that she was born to be his. Soon he discovers she’s in grave danger from a Doppelganger hunter.

What’s your favorite holiday and why? Christmas, because I get to see family that don’t live near. It’s cheerful. Pretty lights everywhere and there’s a festive spirit everywhere.
Did you ask Santa for anything good? A new laptop. I’ve worn my other out.
What’s your favorite place to spend the holidays? Home.
What is your favorite Christmas memory? Making a snow woman with my grandmother. We dressed her with a fancy hat and scarf and she had more than the basic snowman curves when we were done with her
Do you have personal resolutions for the New Years? Anything interesting? Nah, my goals are an ongoing thing I tweak all year long, adjusting as I reach them, setting new ones.
Why do you write romance? I love to read it. I like the escape and I enjoy bringing my worlds to life with words and sharing them.
How long have you been writing for? 7 years. And how would you describe your publication journey? Up and down. An ongoing journey.
Are you a plotter or pantser? What is your routine? I’ve never used an outline. I’m a complete pantser.
What characteristics do all your heroes/heroines have in all your stories? Honesty, integrity. I want my readers to like them and I think they need to be trustworthy. Do they have problems, yes, but it’s the way they resolve them that are important to me.
What writing resources do you abide by as a writer? Strunk and White is a must. I have so many resources, but the local library and the lady that works there is one of my favorites.
What advice would you give aspiring authors? Learn your craft. Read everything you can. When you’re ready to give up, tell yourself, I’m going to try this one more time. You will get rejections, it’s part of becoming and author and staying an author. Even published authors get them.
What are you working on right now? Twenty different stories. My science fiction story for the Elatian line at Decadent publishing is the primary focus though.
What news would you like to share with your readers? Well, I’ve got two Edge series stories I recently contracted with Decadent. No release date, but I’m guessing the beginning of next year some time.
