What inspires you to write?
I have written two novels, and both times the story came bursting into my head. That is what inspired me to write. It was getting the novel down on paper.
Tell us about your writing process.
Sometimes long hand. Sometimes on a computer. Either in my patio or at a coffee shop. I go where the story leads me.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I develop my characters as I write.
What advice would you give other writers?
Keep working and don’t get discouraged.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I self-published my first novel as it is a unique work that New York would never gravitate toward. My second novel I am trying to get it published the traditional way, just to assist with the marketing.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
People will always read good stories.
What genres do you write?
What formats are your books in?
Both eBook and Print
