What inspires you to write?
God is the One who inspires me to write. I can only write because He gives me the ideas.
Tell us about your writing process.
I’m a Pantser. Also known as someone who does a little planning, but who also goes with the flow. I usually start with a basic idea, run with it for awhile, and then plan the last 5-10 chapters once I have an idea of where I want to go to get to the end.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
My characters often take over when I am writing and go directions I didn’t intend them to go, but it usually works very well.
What advice would you give other writers?
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I like the flexibility of being independently published. One of the main reasons I chose to go indie was so that I could write what I wanted and not have to worry about an editor not liking some of the scenes, not because they are not clean, but because they may be “too religious.”
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
More and more people will probably go with ebooks rather than paperbacks.
What do you use?: Professional Editor, Professional Cover Designer, Beta Readers
