Feature Fiction Friday – CeeCee James

Welcome, CeeCee James and congratulations on the recent release of your new book! First, here are CeeCee’s thoughts on her favorite books:

My journey as an author first started as a child who loved to read. Growing up in a household that was often painful, in and out of foster care, I made my escape in several favorite books, who continue to be favorites to this day.
My first favorite that is near and dear to my heart is the James Herriot All Creatures Great and Small series. Those four books made me laugh, cry, and feel like there was a place of goodness and hope still in this word that set me on my own personal journey to find that place. He was an amazing author.
My second favorite books are the C.S. Lewis series, The Chronicles of Narnia. Yes! Still a favorite. It was here I saw other kids escape to new lands, and I lived vicariously through them. They reminded me to be brave, and continue to look for the beauty and whimsy in the world. I adored reading them out loud to my own children, over cups of hot cocoa.
As an adult, my favorites have gone far and wide. But nothing has yet measured up to J.R.R. Tolkienโ€™s Lord of the Rings trilogy. His world building skills continue to hold me in awe.
These books have influenced my own writing, which centers on the main characters emotional journey. I try to drop in whimsy, and beautiful moments that are all around us all the time.

Thanks for letting me share!

A little about CeeCee James:

CeeCee James is a wife, mom, owner of two mini-dashchunds, writer, and watercolor artist. Most of all, she is a survivor. The story about overcoming strife is one that resonates with her. She lived it herself. An advocate for adult survivors of child abuse, her Ghost No More series is her true story of surviving and healing from childhood trauma.
Her fictional series, Wrecked and Yours, is about love, secrets and navigating life. It’s romantic, uncertain and messy, like life often is. It describes their season to make a choice, “look at life honestly and deal with it, or continue to run away.” CeeCee absolutely loved writing it, and hopes it resonates with you because everyone has an important story of what they’ve overcome.

TRAVEL

When this writing prompt was suggested it was a real challenge to come up with just one thing! The list of things and people I love could be endless: handsome heroes, good movies, dear friends, well-written books, delicious food, my family, animals… I could probably go on all day. But then I finally settled on one thing that could actually encompass almost the entire list – traveling with my husband.

Traveling is one of the most valuable experiences, especially for a writer. You become so much more aware of people and their circumstances when you travel outside of your usual environment. When you can develop empathy for others you will be much better at developing your characters. My husband (whom I love dearly, of course) and I love to travel. In the last couple of years we have been to several States (Florida, Tennessee, Rhode Island, Montana, Wyoming, Michigan, New York, Maryland) as well as other countries: England, France, Italy, Nicaragua, and Dominican Republic. Each place has its unique beauty and value. And we have been enriched by each new experience. As a writer, traveling is also a form of research (which I also love). For example, so far all my stories have been set in Regency era London, so traveling to England and seeing the architecture puts me in a much better position to write believable descriptions of places, rooms, and estates. So traveling is one of the many things I love and I highly recommend it ๐Ÿ™‚

Almost all people love to travel. To see beautiful places and get the chance to take photos of it is just one of many dreams I have. Personally, traveling is like a therapy for me because I get the chance to disconnect myself from the real world. Every breathtaking scenery I see keeps me away from the stress of the real world! That’s why I call it a therapy. Though it will definitely require enough budget from you, you will be able to maximize it if you had fun!
