What inspires you to write?
My inspiration comes from knowing that one day there is a possibility of my novels becoming a movie.
Tell us about your writing process.
It just depends on the book. I have several were I just wrote and there were only two that I provided an outline for myself. Most of my stories I just write until the end.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I listen to my characters. Especially, when I try to sleep at night and they won’t let me rest. It’s like a movie playing over and over in my head until the novel is finished. Once it is completed, the voice go away accept for one book. The voices didn’t go away until a week later.
What advice would you give other writers?
Keep writing no matter what people say. The publishing a book business is saturated these days. Just keep writing and try your best to stand out from the rest. Just don’t give up.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I was with a publishing company when I first started out but they stop paying me, so I decided to go ahead and start self-publishing my own work. It’s nothing like being in charge of your own work.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Book publishing now is saturated with so many books. Everyone wants to publish a book. The future is bright book publishing.
