About Stella Lancaster:

What inspires you to write?
Real people, real life, relationships, and complex, unresolved emotions.
Tell us about your writing process.
I write like a fiend, and it’s an all-or-nothing process. When a story hits me, I’m obsessed with it and actually have difficulty staying present in the “real world.” I’m probably annoying to live with.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Definitely, and it’s the smallest things about characters that capture my attention. What makes them tick and why?
What advice would you give other writers?
Write because you love it and when the going gets tough, make yourself tougher. This isn’t a job for the faint of heart.
Also, the writing process isn’t about being a great writer, it’s about being a great rewriter.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I’m writing under a pen name for this book, for I’ve traveled the traditional publishing route already. I want more freedom this time around.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
E-books will be the norm, I believe. I still think there will be a place for hard copies, but new generations will want electronic.
