The greatest joy of writing for me is seeing the characters and plot mesh together.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean everything to me. I want them to get as much out of reading as I get out of writing
What are you working on next?
At the moment, I'm currently working on bringing back something I attempted to do about three years ago.
Who are your favorite authors?
Too many to name.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Everything, I guess.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I volunteer at JFK Medical Center three days a week and I'm part of two book clubs.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I have both a Nook and a Sony e-reader, so they're on there.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Not really, my memory changed over time.
What is your writing process?
First, I get an idea and then, after I think about it long and hard, I put it into words. Of course, sometimes, what I think and what I write aren't the same thing. But, I try my best to make it as good as possible.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I ever read would have to be "Charlotte's Web," by E.B. White. I kept the book for many years and I eventually had to throw it away because it was falling apart. As far as the impact it had on me, whenever I see a pig or a spider, they automatically become Charlotte and Wilbur.
How do you approach cover design?
I never designed a cover before.
