Q: What tips do you have for others aspiring to become a published author?

A: You have a dream. You’ve got to be prepared in order for that dream to become reality. You know what they say. You only have one chance to make a good first impression. Impress them with the attention paid to create a polished manuscript before you submit it. Be sure to research your market to prevent instant rejection because you didn’t do your homework. Don’t be afraid to ask questions if there is something you don’t know or understand. But above all, bait the hook to keep your readers reading.

 

Q: When do you feel is your best time of day to write?

A: Setting aside a particular time of day would stunt my creativity. So, I write constantly—whether with pen and paper, memo notes on my cell, or on my laptop. Now, I can tell you that ideas for romance stories and plot altercations do crop up frequently in the wee hours of the morning. And sometimes in a dream.

Also, I have to write whenever the movies in my head start to roll. Yes, you read that last sentence right. Sometimes I see full scenes of my characters’ behaviors and hear their conversations just like watching a movie. It’s all there. All I have to do is get it down for editing.

I love creative writing. That’s why I call what I do “Luv-N it!”

 

Q: Where is your favorite place to create?

A: Wherever the spirit hits.

 

Q: How do you see your future in writing?

A: I think my writing future is wide open. As long as the world turns, life will provide the plots that keep readers coming back.
