Smashwords Interview

Why would anyone want to be a novelist? I mean, willingly?
I love it too much to stop. I love stepping into a character's world and becoming fully immersed in that universe. It's better than any job I've ever had.
What comes first, the plot or the characters?
For me, it's always been about the characters. One drops into my head and has a story to tell. Sometimes I have to do a little digging, because as we all know, there are many sides to a story.
