What inspires you to write?
My goal in my writing is to share my story, and my reader’s reception of my story and appreciation of my work is what inspires me and drives me to continue writing each and every day.
What authors do you read when you aren’t writing?
My favorite author is Edgar Allen Poe by far, I love his sense of realism in his writings!
Tell us about your writing process.
For my autobiographical series, I’ve been a “seat of the pants” writer for the most part. Due to memory issues, I’ve ran the past through my mind multiple times and will take notes on each event that I remember, and keep them in chronological order to make my writing much easier and more effective.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I don’t typically write fiction.
What advice would you give other writers?
Never give up! Always continue pushing forward and learning new things, no matter how many times you fail. Failure is what drives us to success!
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I decided that the traditional route for publishing wasn’t for me once I discovered Amazon KDP. It gave me power over my publications, unlike traditional publishing.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I know for a fact that the future of book publishing is online. Amazon KDP is one of the leaders of this new wave of online publishing. The traditional physical publishing formats have fallen, and Ebooks and Audiobooks are rising!
