What is your writing process?
I usually write the complete outline and character sketches for my novels on the back of wrapping paper taped to my office door. This allows me to add details with post-it notes to deepen the dimension of the book.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I remember reading Jack London's Call of the Wild and couldn't put it down.
