What inspires you to write?
I get inspired through everyday conversations with my family, and I write because I need to. There's so much going on in my head, that I must get the story out and on paper.
Tell us about your writing process.
I'm definitely an outliner. Each story has its own notebook with character descriptions, and plots as well as inserted photos for inspiration.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Of course. When writing dialogue, I feel as if I'm speaking to my characters, and they answer back.
Who are your favorite authors?
The list is way too long. I have so many favorite Authors that there isn't enough room on this page to fill. But I will say my all-time favorite is Laurell K. Hamilton. I enjoy reading Tiffany Reisz and Pepper Winters as well.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
The reason I chose a traditional publisher was that I assumed more readers would flock to my books knowing that it's 'actually' published. Since then, I've decided to self-publish a few. I feel that I have more say so in the entire process. It was more about using the logo and name.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think there will be way more writers revealing themselves because of the option to self-publish. I just hope they choose to use editing companies as well as other forms of assistance when releasing their title. Although with so many people publishing their books, the price of each title will more than likely drop. It's already a tough market, but I enjoy writing so I'll continue to keep doing it.
