What inspires you to write?
I get the most writing inspiration from everyday worldly challenges. The frustration in politics is what gives me the most creativity.
Tell us about your writing process.
After much practice, I have learned through trial and error the art of novel writing and I enjoy it very much. I have never been much of a structured writer, I just write the story as it comes to my head. After the story is told I go back and edit like crazy making sure everything comes together nicely.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I decided the easiest most controlled, cost efficient way to publish my books were through self publishing. I like to be able to control when the books come out, who I want to edit them and where I would like my readers to find them. I published on Amazon because I have heard nothing but good things and I already have a online bookstore with them which sells antique hard to find books.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think the future of book publishing is in the hands of the writer. Traditional publishing is going away and self publishing is on the rise.
