What inspires you to write?
After 34 as an artist, stories came to me, just as pictures used to come. They've been coming since 2005.
Tell us about your writing process.
I'm more a seat of the pants writer. A story idea (prose or poetry) comes to me, and I sit at the keyboard and transcribe it. Editing comes later.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I listen to my characters. They act and/or re-act as is appropriate for them.
What advice would you give other writers?
patience and perseverance…and lots of both.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
After much research, I chose Createspace…for price, quality, and speed.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
As more and more people self-publish, self-publishing will be recognized as more legitimate.
