Happy Wednesday! Today the Inspired Prompt welcomes author, Jason C. Joyner. We’re so happy you could join us. First question:
Can you describe yourself in three words?
Jason: Intelligent. Romantic. Curious.
Great traits for an author. 🙂 Now about travel…
Someone offers you a fully-paid writing research trip to any place you desire to go. Where would it be and why?
Jason: There’s so many places! It’s a hard choice, but right now I’d say Lake Maracaibo in Venezuela. It is the site of Catatumbo lightning, the most lightning in the world, with it happening an average of 150 days a year. I’ve got a story idea for it, so to see it in real life would be amazing.
Wow. That would certainly make a great story setting. Last question:
If someone made a movie of your life, what would be the theme song?
Jason: The theme song for my movie would be “Dare You to Move,” by Switchfoot. It’s a song that calls us to live a bold, brave life. I don’t always live up to it, but when I have, some awesome things have happened.
I LOVE that song too. Thanks so much for dropping by!

Sixteen-year-olds Demarcus Bartlett and Lily Beausoliel are among a select group of youth invited to an exclusive, all-expenses-paid conference at social media giant Alturas’ California headquarters. Led by charismatic founder Simon Mazor, the world’s youngest billionaire, this isn’t the typical honors society. It seems that everyone here has some secret, untapped potential, some power that may not be entirely of this world. An ancient prophecy suggests that if these teens combine their abilities, they could change the course of history. The only question is: Will it be for better or for worse?
