What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Knowing that I'm impacting people's lives, whether it be through writing, or through my day job.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Before writing, I used to read a ton. Now, I'm unable to do that. If I'm not working, I'm usually at my day job, or relaxing with family.
