Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
I'm at the best time in my life, able to do what I love, which is creative writing. There's always a new twist in a story, a puzzle to solve, or a character personality trait to enhance. I go to bed with questions and wake up with a new perspective which always makes for a fun day. The short answer to your question then is- "Writing inspires me to get out of bed every day."
Who are your favorite authors?
Mark Twain, Harper Lee, Debbie Macomber, and John Grisham, to name a few.
