What inspires you to write?
Anything and everything, just looking at an everyday object or scene sets the wheels in motion. Also people, past and present always play a big part in the characters in the novels. I also write children’s books because a love of reading started at an early age allows a person a better start in life. Rhyming text with fun stories teaches kids the love of reading.
Tell us about your writing process.
I feel the most important part of a novel is character development. I start with pages of what I feel the character looks like and acts like. Then of course they take over and complete the books.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
More like they talk to me, sometimes I start writing something and they tell me I wouldn’t do that or ley’s take this in a new direction. They make the books, so of course I listen.
What advice would you give other writers?
If you love to write, do it. With so many authors out there you are probably not going to get rich, but it is all about enjoying the writing and when you get an awesome review the whole process is worth while.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I went with create space and Kindle direct publishing. It was the easy process and no up front expense that drove me in this direction. On top of that, as an indie writer and publisher, you write what you want, how you want and don’t have someone looking over your shoulder. I do hate to type though and always write everything long hand first! That’s a lot of paper with me working on the 24th book!
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think indie publishing is the future. I hope though that we will always have libraries with hardback and paperback books. I am old school I guess, but I love books and nothing is like grabbing a favorite off your shelf and curling up with your old friends.
