What inspires you to write?
This is a tough question to answer because it depends on my mood. I do like a quiet house, which means I either wake up early or stay up late, since I am the mother of two very busy boys. I don’t have a playlist for my books, but I do turn on Pandora and choose a station that is fitting for what I am writing. I like the random selection of songs to guide the story.
Tell us about your writing process.
I love to let my characters tell their own story. I know who they are, and the overall premise of the story, but the details usually don’t come to me until I’m typing them. I start at the beginning and write as if I were reading a story from page one until the end. I just have to step back and let my characters talk to me.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I always listen to them. It’s their story to tell, not mine.
What advice would you give other writers?
To stay true to themselves, and write what their heart calls them to. If you receive a bad review, use it to better your craft. If the negative kills your spirit, go to your all time favorite authors books and read their negative reviews. We all get them, and that’s okay. It should not kill drive to write.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I started by sharing my books with friends and their excited triggered something in me to share my stories with as many people as possible.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I try to live for today.
