What inspires you to write?
I find inspiration everywhere. It can be in a song that plays on the radio, something someone is saying to me, when something in life happens, and so many other things. For instance, I found inspiration in the novel I'm about to release from someone's life (it's based on real events). The parts of the story I altered came to me by listening to cover songs done by Halestorm. The raw emotion in Lzzy's voice really pulled a lot out of me.
Tell us about your writing process.
I do a simple outline so I remember where I want to go with the story. I do separately write out outlines for characters, as well. Most of my work it is done by hand. That's right. I write the story out by hand using good ol' pen and paper. I write out the characters the same way. I put everything in a binder. It makes it easier for me to navigate through.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I actually do not do this. When I'm writing, I just let things flow. If I don't follow my outline, oh well. I try to do what feels right for my character.
What advice would you give other writers?
Let the story flow. If you don't know what to do in a chapter yet, skip it. I usually have an idea for all of my chapters. If you don't have an idea, skip ahead. It's okay to come back later. This is only the rough draft, anyway. I wrote Saving Face in 12 days. I skipped the parts I didn't know how to write yet and went to the parts I did. It's like taking a test, fill out what you know and come back for the rest. That's what I do.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Well, I have been doing this for 11 years. Most of my books (13) were all what other people wanted me to write (different publishers). Now, I want to have my own voice and write my own stories. I am self-publishing until I find a publisher worthy of my voice.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I used to think that print was going out of style. However, after meeting a lot of people and going back to college, I realized that that's a myth. After signing with multiple traditional publishers, I realized that they're competing with self-published authors. The tables have turned. Self-published authors are more popular than ever. Plus, there’s Print on Demand. An author or publisher no longer have to bulk order books to toss them in a garage and wait for them to sell. All that has to happen now is the readers click to buy, the book is made, and the book gets shipped out and delivered to the author. It’s great. Times are changing. I'm worried traditional publishing might fade away.
