About Nancy Roe:
When Nancy Roe was twelve, she wrote an autobiography for a sixth grade English assignment. In the last chapter, Nancy wrote that she wanted to be an author. When she turned fifty, her dreams came true! And she hasn’t stopped writing since.
Nancy also blogs at The Nancy Way.com. You’ll find articles on organizing tips, recipes, craft ideas, computer tips, grammar tips, and unusual holidays. Even her dog, Shadow, writes an article—there has to be humor, and he’s a funny guy!

What inspires you to write?
It’s always been a dream of mine.
Tell us about your writing process.
I start out getting my characters partially defined. Then I write. After the first rough draft, I define my characters more and start an outline. It helps me fill in gaps in the story.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
My characters talk through me. I imagine how they look, what gestures they use, how they walk, and how they interact.
What advice would you give other writers?
Just start writing, and never stop.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I self-published. I liked the control I had over the entire process.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I still love the feel of paper in my hand. However, I do love the fact I can carry hundreds of books on my kindle.
