What inspires you to write?
A good story. If I can see the story transpire in my head, and I think it’s something that would interest me, I try to write it down, because I think it will interest others as well.
Tell us about your writing process.
I may have an idea of where I want the story to go, but I just let it develop on its own.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I just let the story and the characters develop on their own. If I have to, I’ll go back and add some back story to help the development, but I like to let the action develop as it’s going.
What advice would you give other writers?
Don’t give up. It’s so gratifying to see the finished product and never wonder ‘what if?’
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Back when I was first writing the book, I sent letters to agents, but didn’t get anywhere. I put the book down for a few years, and then when I finally made the decision to publish the book, I chose to skip that route altogether and self publish. I would advise new writers to examine both alternatives and choose the one that they feel is best for them. There isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to book publishing. You have to use what works best for you.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
No one has a crystal ball, but as an author and reader, what do you think? Clearly, there is a trend toward digital publishing, and with the tools that currently exist, and that are constantly improving, self publishing is getting easier and easier. But traditional publishers add lots of value, and there will always be authors who don’t want the burden of doing everything on their own, so I don’t see the traditional model going away any time soon.
