What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
An abundance of relatable fictional characters with conflicts demanded that I write my first book in a series of short stories. The plot twists make "Harvest Moon Wish and Other Short Stories" challenging for the reader. I feel like I know my characters, some of whom will reemerge in the second book of short stories, which I am currently working on. Readers can relate to most characters and the problems they encounter. In most stories, the plot twists make conflict resolution enjoyable and fun to read.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The characters are imaginary though I feel like I know them personally. Heightened visual imagery helped me to develop their personalities. Travel, research, and people-watching proved useful in character development. I used first-hand interviews for stories written about characters in different cultures, especially for those in the Southern region of the United States.
