You write as a pair. How do you manage that? One of you writes a chapter and then the other one writes a chapter??
Precisely. But to explain it further, we meet before we ever start writing and lay out an outline of the book. Then we choose the chapters that we want to write, but mostly we alternate each chapter. After one of us is done writing a chapter, then she sends it to the other and the other edits it and starts on the next.
Tell us the truth. Do you ever get into fights about writing? Does that spill over into the personal sphere?
We don’t fight very much at all, but we do have disagreements every now and then. But all in all we have the same goal in mind. And it does not spill into our personal life. We are usually pretty good about keeping our personal lives separate from our writing life.
