“No one has the power to shatter your dreams unless you give it to them.” That’s Maeve Greyson’s mantra. She and her hubby of almost forty years traveled around the world while in the U.S. Air Force. Now she’s settled in rural Kentucky where she writes about her beloved Highlanders and the sassy women who tame them.
What inspires you to write?
Writing is my therapy. I disappear into worlds of my own making and visit with characters who love to chat. Inspiration comes from things as simple as a walk in the woods, a snippet of a song, or a confrontation with a surly person who needs to be written into a book and then killed off!
Tell us about your writing process.
Writing comes easiest to me early in the morning. When starting a new project, it begins as a jotted down idea, grows into an outline, researches into a story, and then I start writing and characters end up doing things I didn't plan. Scrivener and sticky notes on poster board are my weapons of choice.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I watch them. I get inside their heads. I talk with them, scream at them, and on occasion, curse at them when they don't cooperate.
Who are your favorite authors?
I can't begin to list them all because I'm constantly finding new favorites. I love a good story. Plain and simple.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I don't think I decided how to publish my books. Fate decided. I submitted to publishers. Some accepted and some didn't and when they didn't, I chose another route. Never contain yourself to one option. Never give up.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
It's constantly changing. It's like a great morphing beast or artificial intelligence that learns how to overcome everything we do in attempts to tame it.
What genres do you write?
Romance: Time travel, Paranormal, Historical, Contemporary, and sometimes a mashup of all of the above.
What formats are your books in?
eBook, Print, Audiobook
