What inspires you to write?
My kids inspire my characters and my nightmares inspire my stories 🙂
Tell us about your writing process.
I do a little bit of both! I usually write a general outline and then as I write I adjust the outline if needed. I have recently found love for the 60 scene method.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
My characters have a way of changing my plans for the plot. Regularly. But it’s okay–their ideas are always better than my own.
What advice would you give other writers?
Never Give Up!
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I am both traditionally published and self-published and don’t really prefer one over the other. I admit being traditionally published is exciting, but realistically, self-publishing has benefits, too, and it was also the gateway to traditional deals for me.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
It’s looking good! I know people get in panic over this often, but authors just need to stop worrying about publishing and worry about books and readers. Build a faithful audience.
