What inspires you to write?
Emotions. Cannot have a story without emotions that inspire you to write. Since I have a lot memories of highs and lows, it provides great fodder for crafting great tales.
Tell us about your writing process.
A pantser. Plotting things out like an outliner doesn’t work for me.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
My characters are an extension of myself 🙂
What advice would you give other writers?
Non-stop writing. You will never get any where if you join writing groups and listen to nimrod English majors who try to shove their version of our language down your throat. The English language is varied like our international brothers. Unless you can understand and amply those. You won’t be much of a good writer.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I decided to self publish my first novel cause of rejections I got. I lost the Writers of the Future contest way back. I was in the bottom class of not even being passed onto the celeb judges. Just showed me that I have to work that much harder. Cause if success comes easy, then you are bound for an earlier fall.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think print and digital will go hand in hand. Some people have eye problems that computers such as the IPAD can only make worse. So books would be easier since they can be made in a variety of print sizes. Computers can too, but they can be difficult to use and wield for those with disabilities which is a large number of the population.
