What inspires you to write?
I’m inspired by authors such as Hemingway, and Jack London as well as good songwriters like Michael Tomlinson, and Don Henly. Everyone has a story if you just take the time to listen. Everyone is interesting in their own way.
Tell us about your writing process.
I jot down ideas constantly. When I get one fleshed out in my mind, I bounce it off others to check for interest. Then I outline it and see if it has enough material for the chapters I’ll need.
