What inspires you to write?
As a tried and true introvert, I’m a constant observer. So I’m inspired by everyday life. What people say to each other, how they react to and look at each other. My husband jokes that at all times he looks around to see what details will end up in my next story!
Tell us about your writing process.
I write in my head way before my fingers hit the keyboard. My stories usually start out as ideas that form while I’m swimming, on a walk, or in the shower. By the time I sit down to write, the basic concepts flow. I tend to write in this way, leave it, and come back to edit a bit later.
What advice would you give other writers?
Read and write a lot. Take chances. Connect with other readers and writers.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I chose a hybrid publisher (Booktrope) because, for me, it was the perfect balance of having a say in the details, while being held up by the support of a team.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think book publishing is changing in amazing and exciting ways. Self and hybrid publishing has opened the door for so many talented writers and digital book sales have made books accessible to so many voracious readers. The only sadness I feel about the state of things is how many book stores are closing. Other than that, I truly see only great things.
