Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
My next novel is titled, Where Do We Go From Here. I am especially proud of this novel as many who have read the review copies have said that it seems much like a Lifetime Television special. The novel is about a girl who lives in a poverty stricken neighborhood who controls her own destiny to move up, swearing never to return to poverty, only to find that life on the other side of the tracks isn't as glamorous as she'd dreamed, i.e, more money, more problems and then some.
Which element of fiction do you usually write from?
I believe I write more character driven novels. Even if I come up with a plot, I immediately begin to think of the character and how that type of plot would affect them; how the character would respond; what from the character's past will drive them to make their decision; and, based on their past, what decision will the character make. I think a lot of emphasis is put on plot and theme and even point of view. However, character is very key because the character drives the story and there are reasons why they drive the story in the manner that they drive it in.
