What inspires you to write?
When I was younger, my parents had to work a lot. I was a token minority in my classroom, and because of that I didn't have a lot of friends. Reading was a way to escape that. When I was in middle school, I decided to give writing a try, and ever since then, I couldn't stop. So general escapism of life is what inspires me to write.
Tell us about your writing process.
I'm write an outline and am spontaneous. Usually, I'd have this really cool idea that pops into my head, and before I realize it, I'm writing that idea down. An outline is strenuous for me, but it helps me remember my thoughts. If I'm spontaneous though, that's where my passion flows.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
For me, I usually listen to my characters. I ask them what they'd do, how they'd do it, if they regretted anything. If they regret something, then that means I have to lay the foundation for another story for them to explain themselves, to show the reader why they did what they did. Sometimes we'd get into arguments, and most of the time, I'd bang my head on the desk in frustration. Other than that, we're completely fine.
Who are your favorite authors?
My favorite authors are Amelia Atwater-Rhodes with her Den of Shadows series, and I, Corriander by Sally Gardener. I'm also a book reviewer though, so any books that catch my attention are genially a plus for me.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I was originally with Black Rose Writing, but since then, I've take to self-publishing my own books. I may change this later on, but for now, I'm just happy with sharing my work.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I believe that publishing will continue on as it will. Indie authors will gain more prominence, but traditional authors will also have a say. I believe the two will achieve a balance somehow, despite what everyone else is saying.
What genres do you write?
Romance, paranormal romance, horror, mystery
