Smashwords Interview

When did you first discover a love of writing?
I would have to say that I discovered my love for writing at a very early age. When I was around nine, I began writing script/plays for the Youth and Sunday School programs at my church on the island of Nevis in the West Indies. Then later on, I wrote Christian songs that my brothers and I used to sing in church, and love poems that I shared with my closest high school classmates, and then with my co-workers once I entered the workforce—a strange combination, I know. I feel that I was born to be a writer.
Where do you get your story ideas?
I’m a character-driven writer and I see people interacting in my head before I know the plot. A story may come to me in a dream or it might be triggered when I see someone doing or saying something out of the ordinary, or something quite simple. My inspiration for Erik, the hero in The Doctor’s Secret Bride came about at a funeral. I saw this sad man standing beside his wife’s coffin; he was holding a little girl’s hand, and I thought, “You poor, poor man, what happened to you?” My then precocious 5-year old daughter inspired Precious’ character. Michelle just fell from the sky, like an angel. She was an angel for both Erik and Precious.
