What inspires you to write?
I'm inspired to write mainly by the depression I suffered as a young teen and the death of my father. I try to deal with serious issues such as this in my books to help others going through the same things I went through.
Tell us about your writing process.
I try to think of a general outline for my books first, though I don't add much detail at that point because I like the book to take a life of its own and sometimes the ending is not at all what I originally planned. I have in the past made sketches of my characters, but haven't been doing so recently because it takes too much time. I also like to write my books on paper first before typing them up.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I don't listen to or talk to my characters, but lately I've been talking to my friends and family about characters. I often describe to them the personalities of characters for potential books so I can figure out if the character would be interesting to write about or not.
What advice would you give other writers?
I would say to never give up on your dreams. If you have an idea for a new book, then go for it even if nobody else thinks it's a good idea.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I decided to publish with a publisher instead of self-publishing because I was inexperienced and wasn't sure how to publish something on my own. I found my publisher on a list of fiction publishers and submitting to all of them and getting a reply from my current company.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I'm hoping that in the future, smaller book publishing companies will get more popular. I think people are beginning to prefer things created by individuals or smaller companies rather than big corporate businesses, so we might see a shift toward that.
