What inspires you to write?
I'll see something and watch something and my brain wanders off into it's own little land of adventure.
Tell us about your writing process.
I love history, so when I want to start a story a plot line is written down and then I do extensive research. I want my books to be historically accurate for the time period. I use notebooks that get filled with ideas about the story and how I want the characters' personalities to intertwine with each other and off I go.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
By the time I'm a quarter of the way through a fiction story, they're very real to me.
Who are your favorite authors?
No favorites. I read specific genres. I've read so many books that I couldn't come close to naming all the authors.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Way back when……I was originally published with a publishing house. In the last few years, I've gone indie. I have one book left with the publishing house and when that's done, I'll no longer be considered a hybrid author. However, I've looked at several publishing houses and may consider going with one of them.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think the swing is going back to publishers. Readers are getting tired of non-professionally published indies and it's leaving a very bad taste in their mouths. Books cost a lot of money and if it's not done right it hurts all of us. My indie books are all done professionally, exactly how a standard publishing house would handle it.
