What inspires you to write?
I love to tell stories. It’s as if the characters have a life of their own they breathe life onto the pages and have experiences that they share with the reader.
Tell us about your writing process.
I have to start with a title first. Once I have the title that sparks the idea for the premise of the story. I come up with an ending first. Then I go back and think of the characters names. Next I think of an eye opening beginning to rope the reader in. After that I come up with a loose outline for the middle sections of the book.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
No I do not talk to my characters but during the course of a day doing other non writing related things ideas pop into my head that I may jot down on a scrap of paper or save as a note in my phone as to not forget and I can add it to the story later.
What advice would you give other writers?
Just write, let it flow.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I researched traditional publishing and self publishing and decided to go the self publishing route because I had all the say so over when and what I released.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think it will be interesting to see what new innovations come about to shake it up again.
