What inspires you to write?
I have always had stories that I wanted to tell and tried go into TV or Film but that didn’t work out so I decided to tell them in book form.
Tell us about your writing process.
I write by the seat of my pants. I usually have the plot in mind but just figure out how I get from point A to point B as I go along.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I listen to my characters. They seem to know what is going to happen before I do.
What advice would you give other writers?
Write every day. Even if it’s just one sentence. You don’t want to get out of the habit.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I tried the traditional way but had little luck with that so I took the independent way.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I would rather have the printed word but I think e-books are the way they will go in the future. Print will stay around for the older generation but eventually it will be all e-books.
