Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I typically spend my time reading, and finding new parks to visit with my boyfriend, playing with our dogs Buddy and Peach. I also love to cook! I've been experimenting with Indian cuisine.
What is your writing process?
It depends on my mood. Sometimes I have a great idea and it spills out of me and I can't write fast enough to get it on the page. Other times I need to sit and stare at the wall until something comes to me. But mostly it's me finding a corner at the library with my MacBook. I read everything I wrote the day before and then I pick up where I left off. If I'm not feeling it where I left off I'll jump around. Go back and add a bit of detail, or spring ahead in the story and write a scene I have in mind for later in the book. I rarely write a book from beginning to end. It just doesn't work out. I will always want to expand on something I wrote or cut part of it out and put it in another part of the story if it works better.
