What inspires you to write?
I like being creative and came up with the idea for the Alexis Fields Thrill Series. I wanted to think somewhat outside the box and believe that I have dome so with my writing style and the three stories that make up this series.
Tell us about your writing process.
I typically outline when I write. I want to have some idea as to where I’m going with the story, and outlining helps avoid potential pitfalls later on in the process. I don’t find that outlining hinders my creativity, and have always preferred it to being a seat of the pants writer.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I imagine the setting that my characters live and operate in and let them direct me as to what to write.
What advice would you give other writers?
I would advise to purchase books on learning the craft of writing, and most of all, read a lot and write a lot.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I decided to self-publish because I like the idea of being in total control of the process, love to create stories/books and be able to have them for sale to a worldwide audience in a short amount of time.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think the future of book publishing looks really good because readers have so many options to choose from to get their content, from eReaders to computers, to smart phones etc.
