What inspires you to write?
My love for music inspires me to weave story around music with a touch of history. There is nothing like making words coming to life.
Tell us about your writing process.
I am inspired by sitting a coffee shop or bookstore and watching the world go by. I start with the beginning and ending then work my way to the middle. Before my story is completed I already know how it is going to end. The fun is taking the characters to the ending.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
My characters make me laugh. I think did I really say that and go from there. Its fun to see how I would react in the same situation.
What advice would you give other writers?
No matter who rejects your work it does not mean you are failure. Everyone has their own opinions and you cannot please everyone no matter how much you try.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
My book was published because I had something to say. I took the first yes and went with it.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Publishing is going to the all self publishing. Paper books will still be around but ebooks will be where everyone will publish. The prices will go down so unless you plan on writing the next bestseller money will be in short supply.
