What inspires you to write?
An obsession with all things book-related since early childhood, as well as my love of teaching, explaining things, and, or course, music!
Tell us about your writing process.
After laying out a very comprehensive outline I go at it — I write fast and sloppy. I don’t stop to think or analyze. I just get everything onto the screen as fast as it comes to me. Then I take a good long while to edit, revise, edit and revise again until it’s as polished and effective as can be.
What advice would you give other writers?
