What inspires you to write?
The stubborn belief that good writing will find a place in the hearts of an appreciative audience.
Tell us about your writing process.
Plan in the shower. Plan for months. Outline carefully – who is what, where, when? Then snatch a spare ten minutes to write, and hope to be surprised by characters wandering outside their limits. The truest voices, the most apt turns of phrase, the funniest gags, all happen at the tip of the pen.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I listen carefully to my inner 12 year-old girl. What, you don’t have one of those?
What advice would you give other writers?
Write it, set it aside, come back to it and cross out everything you hate. If you don’t hate it, you are not trying hard enough. Leave it a little longer.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
By bumping my head against every other closed door for several years.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
It seems the big publishers are doomed. No loos there. But without any filter for quality, I hope that the readers are not so swamped with dross that they stop being able to distinguish good writing from adolescent brain vomit.
