Q: How did you become interested in writing?
A: I have always loved the written word as an avid reader and then as a writer because my favourite authors couldn't keep up with my appetite for more. I got hooked on writing very quickly once I started.
Q: What is the best part of being a writer?
A: The best part about writing is that I get to right some of the wrongs the world sees every day and give my characters a happy ending by the time they make their way through the story. Real life isn't always so obliging.
Q: What is a normal writing day like?
A: I work a nine-to-five job, so normal is trying to carve out writing time in the evenings and on weekends. Sometimes family obligations get the best of me, but I can usually get some writing done in the evening and then do a read through and any edits the next morning.
Q: How does your family feel about your writing?
A: I think they are proud but sometimes baffled when I mutter to myself or talk about people who don't exist. Depends on the day.
Q: What is the strangest thing someone said to you after finding out that you were a writer?
A: At a writer's conference, I once was asked if I would be willing to give free massages because I had written a sample piece featuring a massage therapist. I was able to say honestly that I'm not a massage therapist myself and escape to the buffet table.
