Interview with Drew Stephens

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
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.
