My phone. I always have it to either write or read.
When did you first start writing?
At a young age, maybe six or seven. I always loved to read and write when I was a kid. I grew out of it for a few years during puberty but came back to it after I discovered fanfiction.
What's the story behind your latest book?
The last two stories I've started writing have come from a few really intense dreams. One about a woman who comes back home after a long absence and another about a young man who had to readjust to life as a felon outside the penitentiary.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I have a very energetic puppy. He keeps me preoccupied in between writing and working.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I typically let my stories write themselves, always knowing the ending and figuring a way to make it to that point. I usually do chapter by chapter so that I can go back and edit how I see fit.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Being able to set my schedule around my other job without worries of a deadline, except the one I set for myself.
Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?
Google. And the library of can make it up there. But for romance I tend to looks at other books to draw inspiration from.
What are you working on next?
A full length novel I'm still editing. It's been a work in progress for almost two years but I lost inspiration for it for a long time and now I'm coming back to it.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Money. Money and responsibility. And also getting a chance to make someone else's day a little bit easier.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I usually take a trip the the library or Barnes and Noble. If I see a book I like I will try and get the ebook for it.
How long does it take you to write a book?
Anywhere between six months and a year. I do the editing, cover work, and formatting. Depending on my schedule I do as much as I can when I can.
