Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
I think I'm a little bit scattered when it comes to writing. I don't plan anything. Whenever an idea comes to mind, I jot it down. Most of my work is penned by hand in a notebook. Some of it ends up written on sticky notes, shopping receipts or the back of envelopes. Watching it all come to life when I type it all up is the fun part.
When did you first start writing?
I've always liked to write but confidence was an issue for me. Saving Wishes was hidden away on my computer for four years before I worked up the courage to let anyone read it. Now that it's out there, I'm kicking myself that I wasted so much time worrying about it!
