What inspires you to write?
I’m inspired by books, movies, Robert Heinlein, cartoons, my dreams, and anything else that triggers a thought.
Tell us about your writing process.
I do a little of both outlining and pantsing. If I seriously don’t know where a book is going then I will just write and pants it. If I have an idea of what I want to happen throughout then I will do a little outline and just go.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I listen to them while they are screaming in my head not to kill them, then I do. Hahahaa!
What advice would you give other writers?
Just write, no matter what. If you’re blocked on one story, take out a piece of paper and just dump everything in your mind. This includes book ideas, dialogue, possible characters whatever it is. Just write, get the words out.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I was with an Indie publisher that shut down and I sort of had to go out on my own. I think my advice for new authors is just to do your research and talk to other people who are already with the publisher you’re considering. Get information before diving in, make sure you feel like you can make an educated decision.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think the future is still binge books, whole series coming out at once, serials that allow you to just keep going with a story. I think e-books are still huge in the future, but paperbacks really aren’t going anywhere.
What genres do you write?: Paranormal Romance, Romantic Comedy, NA, Science Fiction, and Horror
What formats are your books in?: eBook, Print
