Q: What do you like most about being a writer?

A: Seeing what tidbits of information I can turn into an enjoyable story.

Q: How much time do you spend writing?

A: That seems to change with the seasons and life’s little upsets. But I try to spend 10-15 hours a week on writing. Some nights it may be fifteen minutes and write a hundred words. I don’t let that discourage me because every word is a word closer to the end of the story.

Q: Do you read the same kinds of books you write?

A: Sometimes. But writing requires research, so I spend a lot of my reading time with non fiction.

Q: When writing love scenes, do you rely more on experience or research?

A: It’s a combination of both. While it’s possible for a writer to make up scenes, I think we always incorporate something of ourselves into the story. It might not be a lot, but how do you not use some quirk you know first hand about that will fit perfectly with your character’s personality.

Q: Do you get writer’s block?

A: I don’t call it that. It’s more, writer’s boredom. When you work on one story long enough and you’ve read through it dozens upon dozens of times, sometimes you just need a break. So I just move on to a different story. I don’t ever not write.
