What inspires you to write?
I've read so many cookbooks over the years, and pull inspiration from so many places. I love to read fantasy novels with magic, and heroine stories where women save the day. My current obsession is M. J.Rose, and I love the Storm Siren series from Mary Weber. As far as cookbooks go for traditional I love The Joy of Cooking, and for my love of science, The Food Lab, and Modernist Cuisine is also a favorite. I'm always looking in the cookbook section of my library to see what's new with vegan and vegetarian dishes too.
Tell us about your writing process.
When I'm developing new recipes in the kitchen I'm usually playing music and dancing and writing as I create them. As far as writing for my book or on my blog I'm usually drinking black coffee, in my pajamas, and listening to classical.
What advice would you give other writers?
The best advice I can give is if you want to become an author, just do it, write what's in your heart and make your dream come true. Don't get overwhelmed by the whole process of writing a book, just take one day at a time and it will come. Believe in yourself and you can make it happen!
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I decided to self-publish with create space on Amazon. For my first time it seemed like a daunting process, overall create space made it easy, and I was happy with how it all turned out.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think the future has good things to offer. There are always new discoveries to be made.
