Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I do, it is a story about the Greek gods/goddesses. I was about six and even got my brother and his friends to draw the pictures for me. The first one I wrote for publication was A Knight's Vow. That story is a historical/time travel.
What is your writing process?
I'm a pantzer. So there's no outlining or anything that looks remotely like it would be organized. I do have a story idea book and I save thoughts in that for both new stories and ones already written down. The characters come to me and tell me how it goes. I never know how I'm getting to the end, just that the journey will surprise me as well. My one thing I know for a fact is all my stories will have a HEA.
