Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
The first thought of the day is often a very interesting one. It prompts me to action. I love getting out of bed reveling in being alive and able to plunge into the daily routine of life. I love interacting with people, watch them move through their lives worrying, hurrying or just happy to be doing what they are doing. In short, it is the hustle and bustle of life that gets me out of bed every day.
What is your writing process?
Stories pop into my head. A phrase during a conversation; a newspaper article; something I see on the road--everything inspires a story and it gradually takes shape. I often share the raw tale with my family and they poke holes into it. This helps me identify the gaps in my tale and work on them. The final shape takes 2-3 days to spring out.
