What inspires you to write?
Everything inspires me to write: The laughter of my children, beautiful sceneries, bad news on TV, struggles, rainy weather, sorrow, tears, quiet moments, happiness, life.
Tell us about your writing process.
I write and then rewrite many times. I usually don’t have an outline, because during the writing process I find that the whole outline changes. I let my imagination fly and feel free like a bird in the sky.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I become each one of my characters. When they talk its like I am talking but in extreme way.
What advice would you give other writers?
Don’t give up your dreams. Keep writing , keep doing what you love most.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I published couple of books with a publisher and then descidede to self-publish my next books. It is such an exciting experience to self-publish a book. It brings freedom and control. Its not always easy, especially the marketing part but its a learning process and I feel its the right thing to do.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think that the market of self-publishing authors will continue to grow in the next years. There will be more digital books but readers will not give up the print books.
