What inspires you to write?
I was inspired by the characters in my family and hometown of Monterey, California. Living in Steinbeck Country, I was raised on his works, and throughout my books I pay homage to the amazing John Steinbeck.
My three must read books are: Cannery Row, by John Steinbeck, The Handmaid’s Tale, by Margaret Atwood, and The Lorax, by Dr. Seuss.
Tell us about your writing process.
I am most comfortable writing in a dark or sparsely lit room with just the computer monitor to light my way. I believe it’s a throw-back to learning video editing, which is often done in dimly lit editing bays.
I use a general outline, and every morning before I get out of bed, I lay there and picture the scenes I am about to write.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I often listen to, and argue with my characters!
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I am a self-published author. It seemed to be the best way to publish the book I wanted to write.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Self-publishing is the future!
