Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes it was about a flying horse (Pegasus) who saved two children, who had been orphaned. Typed on my first little plastic typewriter at around eight years old.
What is your writing process?
I have to have a strong inspiration, where the characters speak to me, and something I feel passionate about is involved. If I have those, the story just sits and stews and either develops into something I can run with ie. write thousands of words, or wake up at night to write notes on, or else the idea goes cold and sits in the back recesses of my mind until it resurfaces again, or goes dormant.
