Interview with Martini Fisher

What do you read for pleasure?
I like to try new books. The major perk of having a lot of author friends is that I'm never without a book to read... I still buy and leave reviews though;-) Right now I'm working my way through some shifter romances. I didn't even know they existed until a few months ago, but they're great fun!
Describe your desk
Messy. With a lot of notes and sticky papers. I'm also very visual and like to have pictures around to associate them with the facts that I need to remember. I've been very good at keeping my desk as the only messy area at home, though. The rest of the house is generally not so awful-looking.
When did you first start writing?
I couldn’t really remember a time where I did not want to write. My dad worked from home quite a bit when we were young, so he usually gave us books to keep us quiet. I always thought that one day I’d be writing one of those books. I started writing stories as soon as I could write short sentences, but never really took this whole writing business seriously until I sent off a short story to a writing competition and surprisingly got an honorable mention (I was 19, I think). Then I sort of get the idea that maybe I can do something with it.
What is your writing process?
As this is my job, I keep normal office hours. Although, the perk maybe that I get to sleep-in every once in a while, but I would generally keep a 9-5 schedule of sitting in my desk either writing, doing promotions or admins for my books. I put in a minimal of 8 hours a day. If I'm ever stuck, I'd just write stream-of-consciousness stuff and store them for later in case they'd come in handy, but the key for me is to never stop writing even for a day.
