Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I published my first book in primary school, my classmate and I wrote, illustrated and published it as a class project that was to be put in the school's library. We also wrote one in grade 9 at high school for German class and my English essays were always well received by my teacher. As an adult I read Jackie Collins novels which gave me an idea for a character for a novel I thought I would like to write. While I had ideas float through my head every now and then, I didn't get a real feel for my first novel, The Road To Vegas, until 2006 when I saw photos of Carmine Giovinazzo from CSI New York. I realised then I had found the inspiration for my male character and proceeded to write the book that month.
What is your writing process?
It varies from book to book. With Vegas, the movie played in my head and I wrote it. With Lotto, and then London, I wrote a two or three line synopsis for each chapter of where I wanted the story to go and it flowed from there. Island was a bit of a hodge podge and just came as it did. The stories makes themselves up as they travel along. With my non-fiction books, they're topics I know about so they come easily. I type it all up first and then edit, or write it out long-hand and then type it up.
