What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I have to say, it's when readers come back and say how much they enjoyed my writing. Sure, I write my stories for my own personal reasons, but it has a sense of validation when someone else likes it.
What are you working on next?
I have many projects in the works. My YA fantasy is coming out by the end of the summer (2014) and I have to start working on its sequel. I also have the concluding volume of my adult suspense/thriller trilogy to complete (written under my pen name, Andy Rane). I'm also working on a post-apocalyptic paranormal story called Ash. I've also got the conclusion to Liquid Blue to finish, along with an adult paranormal series I'm working on, called The Clock Smyth. Lastly, I've got the beginnings of a Steampunk story in the works. And, I'm sure another half dozen ideas will creep into my head soon. ;)
