I almost always write my rough drafts on one of my manual typewriters first. Once I finish, I go and type the story into the computer, editing, perfecting, and tweaking things along the way. When that's done, I go and upload chapters onto my screenwriting software that has a format for writing novels and allow it to read the story back to me to make sure it reads well and I hadn't skipped any words.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I enjoy watching old films and binge watching shows like Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, and Mad Men. I also love to travel a lot. I've always been a victim of wanderlust...lol
How do you approach cover design?
When going onto stock photo sites I always try to find models that embodies the essence of certain characters. I'm very anal about that...lol I don't create the covers, unfortunately. That is a skill I have not yet mastered, so I go to this guy on Fiverr that does amazing ass work. He has not once given me a cover that I though he didn't put his time and effort into.
What are three of your favorite books, and why?
The first two books of Harlan Coben's Myron Bolitar series, Deal Breaker and Drop Shot. They're funny and thrilling and suck you right into the story. Another is James Lear's Hot Valley, which is a Civil War set gay erotica novel. The characters are interesting, the sex is hot as fuck, and the story is intriguing.
What are you working on next?
Other than the next installment of The Masters of Willowhurst, I'm writing and sketching out a serial that I hope I finish by the end of this year. The best way to describe it is an "erotic dark historical gay urban fantasy" that takes place in New Orleans during the early 20th Century.
