What inspires you to write?
My dad used to read to me before I could read, so I developed a love of writing at a young age. That lead to me writing stories for my teachers in elementary school.
Tell us about your writing process.
In the past I was a seat of the pants writer, but now I've found everything falls into place better with an outline.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I don't feel like the characters talk to me, but I do feel like I'm having an endless daydream about them until their story is finished. I tend to only do things that make sense for them.
Who are your favorite authors?
HP Mallory, Carrie Vaughn, Patricia Briggs, Jeff Lindsay
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I looked into the growing world of self-publishing and realized that I am more likely to try a new author if the price of their book is low. I thought that would be a good route for me to go.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think we will see more books in digital form and more audio books (which I am looking into).
What genres do you write?
Urban Fantasy, horror, paranormal romance
