What inspires you to write?
Finding things that I feel I must share with others.
Tell us about your writing process.
I am free form in my writing. Concentrating on one topic at a time and developing it before moving on to the next.
What advice would you give other writers?
Employ a good book editor, even if you feel you can not afford it. They will help polish your book and weed out hundreds of errors that you will never find all by yourself.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I decided to self-published because I wanted to get the stories my books convey out to be read.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think authors will have to start charging more for their ebooks. Now so many seem to want to try market to people who don’t want to pay them for their work and who won’t take the time to help an author out by leaving a review after getting their book for nothing or nearly nothing. This makes no sense to me.
