What inspires you to write?
I always enjoyed reading as a child. All through my childhood and teens, I would read books cover to cover, as fast as I could. I like to think that my children's books will help to encourage children to put their tablets aside and read a book.
Tell us about your writing process.
I'm definitely a seat of the pants writer! I know some authors like to plan out their books, but that isn't my style. I like to write and see what happens and how things develop.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I like to imagine what I would do if I was in their situation.
Who are your favorite authors?
Any books by writers such as Wilbur Smith, James A Michener, or Bernard Cornwall. I love their long story sagas.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
We have never tried to publish any of our books with a publisher. We just wanted to create books and get them out into the world.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Right now Indie books are flooding the market. I hope it settles down, there are just too many books out there that haven't been professionally finished. It hurts Indie Authors when poorly made books are published.
What genres do you write?
What formats are your books in?
eBook, Print, Audiobook
