Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yes and I am not talking about it. I was eight!
What is your writing process?
Until recently, I didn't really have a process. I just sat down and emptied my head of a story as needed.
Now I am trying the disciplined thing. I treat my office like I've gone to work. Shutting myself up for hours.
I dump the story as quickly as my fingers (and real-life) allow and tidy it up from there.
Describe your desk
I don't like clutter so it just has my laptop, a photo of my family, a mini Buddha, a purple vase thing and a sign that says, 'Believe.'
When did you first start writing?
Around eight years old. I started off with poems, then on to short stories. I actually wrote a series when I was twelve but I got rid of it. I wish I could read it again.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I have toyed with the idea for years and kicking myself for waiting!
My words could stay locked on USB devices forever or they could be out there, for others to read.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Emptying my head. It gets loud sometimes. I love surprising even myself sometimes with the directions I go in.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Reading. Spending time with my husband and sons, cleaning up after the cat and wrestling the sock monster in the laundry. I also love the beach, staying active and a boogie with friends.
What do you read for pleasure?
I like romance, horror/suspense and sci-fi.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I browse. I love discovering indie authors especially and those who aren't widely talked about. I feel like I am a sheep if I go for what everyone else is in to. If I like the book, I then search for everything that person has written.
What are you working on next?
I am halfway through a first draft for another book I hope to release mid to late 2016.
My sister and I are also working on a project together set for release mid 2016.
