What inspires you to write?
Tell us about your writing process.
I like to write a brief outline of my story goal and the events needed to achieve my MC’s goal. Then I just let my imagination take over.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Yes! All of the time. I even dream of them asking me to have them do this and that, or they complain about the situations I put them through.
What advice would you give other writers?
Keep writing 🙂
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I queried more than 100 agents, got rejected. So I said to myself, “I love this story, I want people to read it.”
Then I did my research, and here I am, working my way through self-publishing. I am still querying agents, though.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think self-publishing will dominate the market, as will ebooks.
What do you use?: Beta Readers
What genres do you write?: Science Fiction and Fantasy
What formats are your books in?: Both eBook and Print
