What inspires you to write?
I feel like inspiration just strikes like lightning for me but whenever it hits I make sure to take action. For instance my sci-fi series "Flawed" hit while I was sitting at the beach on a cliff in Malibu. The story was so powerful and then as I wrote I felt energy rushing through me, as if in my veins.
What authors do you read when you aren’t writing?
I love a lot of self help authors like Marianne Willaimson, Gary Zukav, Brene Brown, Abraham Hicks, Jen Sincero, and Eckhart Tolle.
Tell us about your writing process.
I sit down, take a breath and write. There's not a whole process to it but I do like to listen to soft film scores and sometimes I'll light a candle. It really feels like a process of listening to what my spirit wants to say.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I don't listen as much as I get so deeply inside their minds that I feel as though I am them. I experience their world through their eyes, or at least with my main characters.
What advice would you give other writers?
Fully embrace the experience. Enjoy every part of it that you can. Have fun with the character developement, dialogue, outlines, the artwork design, the marketing, the more you enjoy it the better it will be. Also if you don't enjoy an aspect typically then find creative ways to make it pleasurable. It's not just about getting the NYT Bestseller, enjoy the whole process, later you'll wish you had savored it more.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
It's always a personal decision with each book. I really meditate and go to that quiet place of inner knowing to uncover the answer.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think the future is BRIGHT! There are so many unique and interesting stories being told and with so many ways of getting those stories out there's no limit to what anyone with the desire can achieve. Just keep going!!!
