What inspires you to write?
I’ve always been writing. Sometimes, it is just a phrase that I hear or an image that I see that inspires an idea for a book, scene or character. It is fascinating that you never know where or when inspiration will hit.
Tell us about your writing process.
I have a general idea for a plot and then let the characters take their own twists and turns. I often find that they lead me down roads that I had never envisioned.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Great question! I think I do both. I listen to them first and foremost. As they develop, as a novel moves along, you can feel the road that they want to go down and I listen. When I am writing dialogue I often talk with the characters. I love “real” dialogue. I always want the reader believe the characters are speaking to each other in language that one would use in real life.
What advice would you give other writers?
Keep writing. Write for yourself and write stories that interest you.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I published with a publisher. I wanted their expertise to help make my books the best they could be.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think book publishing has already moved into the digital age. You must publish your books in a digital format. But that being said there will always be a market for print.
What genres do you write?: thriller, suspense, mystery, romantic comedy
What formats are your books in?: eBook, Print, Both eBook and Print
