What inspires you to write?
My children give me my inspiration to write. I have always wanted to write children’s books, but it wasn’t until I actually had children and was reading books to them that I realised I couldn’t find the types of books I wanted for them and so I started to write my own that I could read to them.
Tell us about your writing process.
Most of my ideas come to me in a dream and then I just have to put pen to paper and write it all down. Most of the dreams have come about from stories I made up with my children during the day, but the really come to life in my dreams.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
definitely have to be a good listener, my characters let me know which way they want a story to go.
What advice would you give other writers?
If you have a dream of writing, just do it. Don’t let it slip away, and once you start make sure you finish it.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I knew how hard it is to publish a book which is why I think a lot of people don’t do it. I found out how to self publish and this was the key to making my dreams reality.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I hope that more opportunities arise for people to self publish, there are so many undiscovered authors with fabulous ideas out there.
