My hobbies also include long walks,reading,going to the movies and watching most of the major sports.
I live in Australia on the beautiful Gold Coast and overlook the ocean from work.
What inspires you to write?
I like to imagine different scenarios unfolding in my head as I find myself daydreaming a lot in my spare time.
Plus I like to entertain people and give the public something to think about.
Tell us about your writing process.
My process is a rather laboured one in which-after coming up with a general plot-I either add or subtract from it until I have something to work with.
Because I work full time I only get to write at night.
I find that it is best to keep to a schedule;which for me involves writing on 5 selected nights each week.
For me,I also like to play some instrumental music to help build with the atmosphere.eg.movie soundtracks.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I have many imaginary conversations in my head to assist me in coming up with realistic dialogue.
Plus I also look at my characters frame of mind to see how their words will come out with regards to volume and tone of voice.
What advice would you give other writers?
Form a schedule and stick to it;even if it impinges on your social life.
Get a good thesaurus or dictaurus(which I use).
Find a work space away from everyone so that you are not distracted.
Love your characters.
Listen to some appropriate music.
Save on your computer at regular intervals.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I had always wanted to be a writer but procrastination and pay tv took over.
Believe it or not,it was the television series Californication that finally got me off of my backside.Just watching Hank Moody sitting in front of a computer preparing to write awoke something in me.
I knew that it would be difficult to find a publisher,so I decided to self publish.
No matter what happens afterwards,once your book is published online,it will always be out there in the world.
So for me publishing is almost like leaving behind a small part of my legacy and is something that I am very proud of.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
The future of book publishing is definitely going to be online.
It is far more easier to find a book online than to go to a bookstore and browse.
