What inspires you to write?
Anything and everything. Once it was as simple as seeing a garden fairy and a gazing ball.
Tell us about your writing process.
When I write I start with an extremely loose outline and often take forays in a different direction. My outline goes directly onto the computer and any new ideas are added at the base of my first story draft.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I most definitely listen to my characters. Sometimes I have to strain to hear and sometimes I can't get down what they are telling me fast enough.
What advice would you give other writers?
Writing is a tough business and it's easy to get discouraged. When your sales aren't quite where you'd like them to be, just remember you are up against more than a million other stories. Every time someone buys or downloads your story, it's an accomplishment.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I have published in small press, E Trad publishers, and self-pub and have found I prefer self-publishing. I make all the decisions concerning my publication: the story, the editing, the cover design and marketing. It may not work for everyone but it's worked for me.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I believe book publishing will continue to grow. It's so easy now for a reader. We can get our fix in paper, E or audio.
What genres do you write?: Romance: Western, Suspense, Timetravel and Paranormal. YA/NA Fantasy.
What formats are your books in?: Both eBook and Print
