1. You’re moving right along with a story line and suddenly it takes an unexpected twist. Do you go with the flow and follow where the twist leads you or do you conform your story to your way?
I have to admit I love the twists. There’s nothing better than when your character surprises you, because for me it means they’ve come to life in your story. Thats the fun part of being a writer. The not-so-fun part is trying to rework the plot so that the new twist fits in! Sometimes I have to put my foot down and tell them to behave!
2. What time of year is your best time for writing? Winter, Summer, Fall, Spring?
Any time! As long as I have my laptop and some good tunes on my iPod, I’m ready to go. There could be snow glistening on the ground, or the brightest, bluest sky, but when I’m writing I don’t notice. In fact, there could be a huge thunderstorm and I’d be oblivious to anything but the story I’m writing. And I have to say it drives my family crazy!
3. When looking for a publisher do you chose a traditional press, indie route, or one that does both, ebook and print?
I’m lucky enough to be a hybrid author–both self-published and traditionally published. It really is the best of both worlds, and I’m so grateful to be in this position. I can be close to my readers as a self published author, while also reaching out to new ones. And I’ve learned so much from both processes.
