What inspires you to write?
I’m an introvert, so talking is hard for me. Writing breaths life into the things I can not say.
Tell us about your writing process.
I usually like to write in the morning when my mind is fresh. But sometimes that’s hard to do just for the fact that I have a family, another business, and promoting my book. If the mornings get too hectic, I write at night after things have calmed down some. I am both a pantser and a plotter. I plot out my major plot points, but after that, I pretty much let the characters take it from there.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Yes, I let them take me to where the story needs to go.
What advice would you give other writers?
My advice to other writers is to never give up. You will get tons of rejections. Everybody does. Even the best of the best did. But don’t let that get you down and give up. Persistence is the key. You’ll get there!
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I first tried for an agent. I wanted to be published with the “big 6” like everybody does. But a small publisher actually found me through a contest and I couldn’t be happier. The other authors are so generous and helpful. We each want to see each other succeed. It feels like we’re all family with my publisher and I love it!
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Books aren’t going anywhere. There are too many readers out there. EBooks will continue to be popular but I still believe everyone loves holding a book in their hands, to feel the pages, smell the ink, and delight in just holding it. The demand for agents might slow down as there are a lot of self-published authors today. But none of it will ever go away.
