Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I enjoy the surprise characters and events. I set out with an outline, but the characters develop organically, independently, even stubbornly. They interrupt me, contradict my preconception of their character, and push into or fade away from the limelight.

In Red Sand, I never intended to write the character Colin. He had a nameless, bit part (pun intended) of a savage with no tongue. By the time I finished writing, he had an entire chapter to himself!
What do your fans mean to you?
I’m in this for the reader. When they enjoy something I wrote, I get great satisfaction out of that. I think my readers are sophisticated, savvy, and expect a great deal for their time. When I can deliver on that, I’ve done my job well.
