1. Have you always wanted to be a writer?
I’ve always enjoyed writing, but It wasn’t my first choice for a career. I was actually a horseback riding instructor and horse trainer. It wasn’t until after I moved and got married that I started focusing more on my writing.
2. Describe your writing space.
I have a large desk where I do most of my writing. In one area, I keep my laptop where I do all my writing, and off to the left is my notebook with my notes. I also keep my incentive (candy or cookies) within eye sight to encourage me to reach my writing goals.
3. What time of the day do you usually write?
Most of my writing gets done at night. Usually after eight PM.
4. What is the most difficult part about writing for you?
Endings are the hardest part of writing for me. It can take me days just to write the ending to a story. I never feel like they come out right.
5. Is there lots to do before you dive in and start writing the story?
I’m more of a pantser. I do make a very basic outline, but mostly I just look over my notes, read the last paragraph I wrote, and then just start writing.
6. How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
So far, I have written 7 books. My favorite is Witch’s War. It’s a fantasy about a witch forced into a war after her husband betrays her.
7. Where do you get your inspiration?
I get a lot of my inspiration from pictures. I’m more of a visual person so things I see, like pictures, give me great ideas for stories.
8. How many bookshelves are in your house?
I have five bookshelves currently, but I’m hoping to add another one soon as all my books are spilling out of my bookshelves and filling up my floor.
9. What do you like to do when you are not writing?
When I’m not writing, I like to read and ride my horse. There is nothing better then racing across an open field on the back of a horse.
