Q: What's the hardest thing about writing?
A: The computer! To say I'm not exactly computer savvy would be a gross understatement. I write every word of my book on notebook paper in a three ring binder. I type a chapter at a time into the computer and print it all out to edit. Even when I download e-books, I print them out and put them in binders to read!
Q: What do you hope readers get from your stories?
A: Escape. Relaxation. Amusement. Enjoyment. I want my books to take readers away from the problems and stress of their lives if only for a short time. Having limited free time and a stress filled schedule, I can't imagine not reading.
I've picked up a book after a particularly grueling day and was in a great mood an hour later. There are so many wonderful authors out there who've given me stories that make the stress melt away. I would love to be able to do that for others.
Q: How often do you write?
A: Every day. Some days are, of course, more productive than others but I can't go a day without writing. I carry my notebook everywhere!
Q: Where do you get your ideas?
A: Absolutely everywhere. They don't stop. Hopefully they never will. Sometimes it can be as simple as an email from someone or a song on the radio. One came from a name that I heard and imagined the person.
Q: Do you only work on one book at a time?
A: I really, really try to work on only one at a time but it doesn't always work out that way. Right now I'm editing a manuscript for submission, mapping out one that woke me in the middle of the night, working on another and have yet another started.
