What inspires you to write?
I was always a day dreamer. In school I would pay more attention to the stories I made up in my head than what was going on in math class. When I graduated from college I finally decided to put all those day dreams on paper. I have been writing every day ever since.
Tell us about your writing process.
I’m not an outliner. A scene usually just pops in my head or an idea and I write a book around it. Sometimes something as simple as a Facebook post can inspire an entire book.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I’m the boss of my characters. I have a very clear idea of who I want them to be. And they are usually all people I would want to be friends with.
What advice would you give other writers?
Join a writers group! Let people read your work. Listen to advice. Be open to learning.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
At first I wanted my books to be in a bookstore so I went with a big publisher and have been very happy there so far. I self publish some of my work because I can get it out to the world quicker than a publisher can. For new authors I would encourage them to explore their options and choose the path that is the best for them.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I actually have no idea what the future of publishing is. I signed my first contract in 2012 and in that short time publishing has made a big shift. I will be keeping a close watch though.
