What inspires you to write?
Misunderstanding, Misconceptions and Clarifications between humans drive me most. The human mind is a deep sea; a vast universe, spiraling with answers and newly found questions, all at once. It’s simply fascinating.
Tell us about your writing process.
I’m kind of all over the place, when it comes to process. At first, I gush to see what flies on the paper, naturally and by impulse. Next, I begin to arrange and order my most intense of moments. After that, I delve deeper into each vision, individually, elaborating and describing everything I see in my minds eye.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Hahaha When I first started writing, I was speaking through them and as we got to know each other better, I started trying different things to see how my new roommates would react. After awhile, they started speaking for themselves, acting, reacting however they wanted. Many arguments but they did the writing for me. Haha!
What advice would you give other writers?
Trust your instinct and that beautiful realm within you to create the vivid visions of your work. Allow criticism to help you become better but don’t allow anyone to place a boulder in your river of creativity.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Roberto is a close friend of mine. I have always wanted my work to be seen, understood and embraced but I never thought of actually publishing my work. When he came up to me, talking about starting a new piece, I just thought it would be something fun to be a part of. I honestly never really gave it much thought.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
This is my first publishing but I must say it is much more technologically streamlined than I assumed it to be.
