About Devon McKay:
Living in Alaska for 27 years, Devon McKay has many exciting stories to tell about the state. On several occasions, she was chased by a mother moose defending her young, stalked by a bear, endured temperatures of forty below and once was even trapped in an avalanche. Devon loved every minute of it! After writing her first novel, Cowboy On The Run, she now calls a small ranch in Ohio home with her loving husband and teenage son. Although the farm life is slightly more laid back then the dangers of Alaska, Devon enjoys the slower pace of the country lifestyle which gives her plenty of time to follow her passion of writing.
What inspires you to write?
Honestly? This is embarrassing. It’s the 3 am story ideas that inspire me.
Tell us about your writing process.
It starts with a line I think is clever or witty. From there a character develops and his or her struggles.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I do both. And I honestly feel as if my characters listen and talk to me too. I personally connect with each and every character I write about.
What advice would you give other writers?
Keep writing. Follow your dream.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I didn’t set out to get a book published. I simply enjoyed writing. After I wrote several stories, I submitted some because I wanted to share my work. I was lucky. I found an amazing publishing company and an incredible editor.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I love my publishing company. I know that several people are self-publishing and it works for them but I thoroughly enjoy my publisher, The Wild Rose Press. They are an awesome company who treats their authors with the utmost respect.
