Q: What made you want to become a writer?
A: There wasn’t one particular instance that made me want to become a writer. I always had a passion for coming up with creative storylines. In my younger years, I would spend my time expressing my creativity through my drawings and paintings. Poetry was also another outlet for my muse. Writing eventually became second nature and a permanent part of my life. Now I couldn’t image doing anything else.
Q: What’s your favorite part of a book?
A: I love endings. The end is where the characters have worked past their introductions, the plot has been set, and now you get to see how it all ties together. I love when authors have unexpected twists to their plots that I can’t figure out until the very last page. Not to mention a bad ending can be the down fall of the entire book. There is nothing I hate more than getting to the end of a book, only to be disappointed by a poor conclusion.
Q: Where do you get your inspiration from?
A: I am inspired by everything around me. Whether it’s a person I meet off the street or a catchy song I hear off the radio, I am always looking for new ideas.
Q: When naming your characters, do you give any thought to the actual meaning?
A: Yes. Names are very important to me. They can make or break the tone you set for your character. When I think of my character’s name I imagine their personality, their strengths, and their weaknesses before I make a decision.
Q: What genre do you like to read?
A: I’m a sucker for suspense and horror novels. When it comes to choosing a book to read, I don’t necessarily prefer one genre over another but there’s something to be said about curling up next to the fire with a good thriller.
