Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The greatest joy for me is to create something out of nothing. The characters in my Jade Harrington series have lives of their own; I could not now "uncreate" them. When a reader comes up to me and says, "I'm wondering what Jade's doing now?" or "What is Whitney doing now?" or "I hate Cole so much, I want to punch him in the face!" it infuses me with satisfaction. And makes me happy.
What do your fans mean to you?
My fans mean everything. I write because I must--like breathing or eating--but I love receiving feedback from my readers. To entertain them or move them or compel someone to learn more about an issue that s/he read about in one of my books, makes all the ups and downs about the writing process worthwhile.
