What inspires you to write?
I am an avid reader. I love the way books open windows into worlds, some real and some imaginary, that I have never seen. In the same way, it is exciting to imagine a new world no one else has seen and bring it to life for others through written words.
Tell us about your writing process.
The ending is the big thing for me, I know the ending from the beginning. And I have a general idea how my main character(s) is/are going to get there. But it is fun how new ideas present themselves as I go along. The story really evolves. This keeps it fresh and exciting for me throughout the process.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I try to get into my characters’ heads, but sometimes they get into mine and I feel like often parts of my personality are going into them.
What advice would you give other writers?
Be true to your story. Maybe reviewers won’t be kind to parts of your book that you know are important to its integrity. That’s okay.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I self-publish because I like the control it gives me over what goes into my books. I like feedback, but in the end, I know that what is in my book is my creation, not my creation that has gone under the carving knife of someone else.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Definitely falling more into the hands of the author, becoming a partnership between the self-publishing publisher and the author. I like this, because this opens up the market to a lot of books we wouldn’t see if it were still only in the hands of publishers and agents.
