About LaDonna Fisher-Hadley:
Author and screenwriter, yoga freak and caffeinista, LaDonna loves twisting a suspenseful tale around technology and nature. With several short reads under her belt, her new novel, Rhyme and Reason, has now been released on Amazon. Whether you prefer to slide your finger across a touchscreen or turn a paper page, her thrilling tales will find you pulling your sweater closer and reaching for more coffee as you lose track of time from following the compelling characters in her stories.
When she’s not writing, LaDonna spends her time carting around her four lively but wonderful teenagers. In those fleeting moments of “spare” time that drift in, she likes to hike and explore the trails around the river. She finds inspiration in a thunderstorm and even steals an hour here and there to crochet and read the up and coming works of Indie Authors like herself.
What inspires you to write?
Everyday events, thunderstorms, and turning things I see into great story lines and characters inspire me to write.
Tell us about your writing process.
My imagination is usually on overdrive, so I jot down notes about ideas if I’m not already on my computer or phone. When I sit down to write I usually just start typing! Sometimes I’ll start with a general outline of my ideas or a character but I always go with the flow and let the story and characters flow onto the page. I truly believe that the story already knows what it is; my role is to let it out through my fingers!
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Let’s just say I have a lot of voices in my head competing for my attention, so, yes I talk to my characters! 🙂
What advice would you give other writers?
My best advice is to write, write, write! Don’t worry about form or outlines or what it will turn into; just let the story form and breathe however it wants. It will come and you will always cross paths with the people who will help you polish it when you need them.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I love self-publishing because I can let the book be exactly what it wants to be without having to change it based on someone else’s guidelines. I get to be in control of the process as well as take responsibility for my own words. For me, it’s very freeing.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think ebooks are where it’s at! I’m sure that there will always be print books, but the ability to carry around an entire library in your purse or pocket…that’s power and freedom!
What genres do you write?: Thriller, Suspense, Horror, Self-Help, Short Stories
