Questions –

  1. When did realize that you wanted to be an author?

I don’t remember a time when I did not want to write and tell stories.  I started writing stories soon after I learned how to read. Being a writer is a part of who I am, so I have always naturally assumed I would write books.  I have always thought of it as something I would do in addition to whatever else I choose to do in life. 

  1. How long does it take for you to write one of your books?

I completed the first draft of The Wages or the Gift in five months.  This was writing most days of the week for at least seven to eight hours of the day.  When I wrote this book, I had the luxury of being able to write full time.  It was good times.

  1. How do you balance your work schedule when you’re busy writing?

When I originally wrote The Wages or the Gift, for the most part, it was my job.  However, these days, I have had to balance a 9-5 and writing.  I have done so by writing after work and on the weekends.  Being single, it’s easy to choose how I spend my “free” time.  I think if I had a family, the balancing act might take longer to master. 

  1. What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

My mood music list changes with each novel/play that I write. Also. I have the ability to tune out the world almost completely, when I am really into a scene. 

  1. How do you come up with ideas for your books?

They come from everywhere.  Inspiration for The Wages or the Gift came from a two-month book binge, when I read over 75 novels, followed by a dream, that was the first scene in my book.  My second novel (currently unpublished) came from something I heard on the five o’clock news while working on a revision for The Wages or the Gift

  1. When did you write your first book?

I wrote my first book when I was in first grade.  It was about a dog named Stella.  My aunt, a wonderful illustrator, drew pictures for me.  I don’t remember what happened to Stella, but I remember it was fun working on the book with my aunt.

  1. What are your hobbies when you’re not writing?

I enjoy Karaoke.  I am not the most successful singer.  I may give some other not so great singers a run for their money in a “Worst Singer Ever” contest.  Nevertheless, I enjoy singing. I enjoy any activity where I can get together with my friends and have fun. 

  1. What does your family and close friends think of your writing?

They are all super supportive. 

  1. What was one of the most interesting things that you learned about yourself when you published your first book?

I learned that I have a lot to learn about publishing.  My first published book was a children’s book.  Did I mention I write children’s books as well?  Anyway, I did not do the best job at promoting the book.  With my novel, I am hoping to improve greatly in that area. 

  1. How many books have you written? Which one is your favorite?

I have written eight children’s books and two novels.  There is a special place in my heart for my children’s book character Drawkcab Brown.  So I would say his books (there are three, two unpublished) are my favorite. 

  1. What do you think makes a good story?

A good story is engaging, vivid, and full of relatable and interesting characters.   I love stories with strong, twisted plots and nice character arcs. 

  1. Where do you like to kick back and write your books?

My home office, the library, or a coffee shop works for me.  It all depends on my mood.
