Tell us about your writing process.
I get the first draft written out just by starting with an idea and letting my characters tell me their story. Later after first draft is written I might go back and outline to see how well the plot flows. Then there are a lot of revisions.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Yes I listen and talk to my characters. It is like voices in my head telling me about themselves and what type of story they want to tell. Sometimes I get it right in the first draft but most of the time through revisions their story becomes clearer.
What advice would you give other writers?
Write. Sit down and write. Don’t worry if it doesn’t make sense or not. Or even if it is any good. You need to get those words out of your head and onto paper or screen. Then you have something to work with. Something to revise.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I didn’t know enough about self publishing so I decided I wanted to go with a publisher.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Never really thought about it. It is all new to me.
