What inspires you to write?
My family, friends, readers, and other fellow authors.
Tell us about your writing process.
Usually I write out an outline for my book. I simply write out what each chapter is going to be about. As I start writing, I begin creating my character sketch. With my current work in progress, First and Only, I decided NOT to use an outline and see where it goes. So far, I absolutely love just letting my characters take me on an adventure with no thought up path. And of course, as I’m writing without an outline, I develop my character sketch. I only do it because I have so many projects I’m working on and I don’t want to get confused and write the wrong hair color for a character.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Yes, of course!
What advice would you give other writers?
Don’t ever give up.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
With my first book, I decided to self-publish. I was new to the whole process, and wasn’t willing to give up my rights to a publishing company. I self-published five books so far. I love it. With my newest book, Pretty Bird, I decided to go with a small publishing company, Booktrope, and I’ve had a great experience with them.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I don’t have a crystal ball, but I think the future of book publishing is going to be amazing. I’m excited to find out.
