Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started writing as a child. I would write my stories down and show them to my mother. She was always honest with her critiques of my works. If I needed more details, she'd let me know. I'm grateful that she was always so honest with me. It prepared me for my future.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I'd have to say, bringing my characters to life. Any writer will tell you that their characters are living, breathing beings that live in their psyche. It is a joy, to me, to see them come to life on the page. I thrill in feeling their feelings, listening (or reading) their conversations, and watching them grow into the people I know they were meant to be. I also enjoy that moment when one of my readers tells me they really connected with my characters. There is no greater feeling in the world than that.
