Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I love the freedom to create. To be able to sit in my own little world and bring to life the characters and stories that I hope bring joy to my readers.
14 years after my first book hit the shelves, I still pinch myself that I get to do my dream job.
What do your fans mean to you?
Everything. The loyalty of readers is so powerful and as an author, it is a precious thing.
I'm an avid reader and fan girl of several authors, so I know the time it takes to read and review a book.
Each and every review counts so when a fan does that for my books, I'm very grateful.
