- Let’s hear your Twitter Pitch! (140 characters or less.)
If you like Maverick, then you’ll love Tink, a feisty female fighter pilot. She is taking danger and love to a whole new level. NA Romance.
- What inspired you to write this book? How is it a book only you could write?
They say to write what you know and as an Air Force veteran and military spouse, I know the military. I also love and respect strong woman, especially women in the military and in jobs that are primarily male dominated. As for why I was best equipped to write this story…Tink has a lot of my own voice––my inside voice, her outside voice. J Also, I’m married to a fighter pilot so it was awesome to able to consult with him to make sure the flying parts of the story were authentic. A lot of the flying scenarios in the book are loosely based off of real experiences.
- What do you love most about your book?
I love the strength and vulnerability of my main character. I think she is very real. She’s a total badass chick who is willing to take chances and stand up for what she believes in. She’s also just a girl, who has unexpectedly fallen in love while dealing with the heartache of losing her brother.
- Who was your favorite character to write? Why?
I spent so much time with Tink, that of course, I love her. So I’m going to disqualify her from the running and say Ash. I really had fun writing his character. He has a boyish charm, quick-wit and he’s an all-around stand-up guy. It also doesn’t hurt that he’s super hot and Special Forces.
- Tell us something we may not know about you.
I have a fear of flying. I’d rather drive for days then ride on an airplane. I stress for weeks before the flight and my heart races the entire time. I suck it up because I love to travel, but I’m much more comfortable with my feet planted on the ground.

One thought on “Call Sign Karma by Jamie Rae – Author Interview”
Heh,heh–I have an aversion to flying as well. Usually when I go back east I drive even though it takes 3 days. It’s more fun and I get to see more. And I can stop or take a detour whenever I want–try that while flying!
I wish you well with your book.
