Tell us about your writing process.
I have no specific writing process. Just reflected stories from my career, which is told by my inner-voice and written onto paper. I use chapter headings and let my mind create the story from there. My book is not only structured by chapters, but each chapter has a title. I would edit after each chapter. Sometimes after each four pages. Each chapter has a true event.
