What inspires you to write?
I want readers and viewers to get to know my characters and the worlds they live in. I want them to love my stories and characters as much as I do.
What authors do you read when you aren’t writing?
Stephen King, Dr. Seuss because of his struggles becoming a known Author. Rod Sterling is a writer and screenwriter and I think he made putting twists in his stories popular especially with the Twilight Zone lol.
Tell us about your writing process.
It takes me a while to completely finish a story. I would either know the beginning or ending or both and just try to connect the two. I write multiple stories at once. When I have an idea, I write that part and so on with the other stories until I am confident and excited to finish the finish the story.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I actually act like my characters lol. I put myself into the shoes of my character and try to feel and think about what they would do next and who should they interact with next.
What advice would you give other writers?
I think a writer should not be too confident in their work that it hinders them from seeing the errors in their stories. There’s always room for improvement and editing BUT I also think writers should be passionate enough to believe in their own work to take the chance and self publish. They shouldn’t wait for someone to approve their work to be published, at least try to give yourself a timeline and if it’s not published by a company do it yourself. Only you know what’s best for your story and how you want to present it to the world. Produce that screenplay you’ve been trying to shop everywhere.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I was tired of rejections. I also did research comparing self publishing to traditional publishing and if successful, self publishing is way better financially and very satisfying when you see your book available for sale lol there’s steps to self publishing, risk and it costs but its more important to me for my stories to be told…
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Self publishing is the way to go I think, with the new outlets online that cater to Indie Authors its hard not to self publish, but I’m afraid of self publishing eventually becoming saturated and then what?
What genres do you write?: Children’s, paranormal, thrillers, science fiction, historical, horrors, comedies and dramas
