Smashwords Interview

What do your fans mean to you?
My fans are 90% of why I write. I can make up stories all day, but others enjoying those stories? That's why I publish. The other 10%? Because I like writing the romances I want to read but can't find.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Coffee. Instant, hot, and don't ask me for anything until I've seen the bottom of the cup. Chances are, I've stayed up far too late the night before, researching and writing. I need the caffeine.
