What is your writing process?
Maybe the best way to answer this is the way the writer Brian Keene answers it, and he calls it "ass in seat" time. You've got to just put your ass in that seat and start writing. Something. Anything. It all starts there. Who knows? Maybe some magic will happen! But you're not going to write anything unless you put your ass in that seat.
When did you first start writing?
I first began writing in earnest back in 2005, with my first novel, "Sumner Gardens," a semi-autobiographical look back at my childhood. Upon completing it, I said to myself, anyone can write ONE book, but if you want to be a WRITER then you need to write more than one. So, I immediately began writing "Hope Town," my first attempt at a thriller. Funny, some readers have said that "Hope Town" almost feels like a sequel to "Sumner Gardens," and in a way, they're right.
