What inspires you to write romance books?
All great stories have intrigue and romance. I don't think I've ever imagined a story in my mind without romance in it.
Tell us about how you write:
I write chronologically using music, art, photos or anything I believe can help inspire me to describe emotions and places. I also use different theories of psychology to develop characters.
Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I talk about my characters as if they are real people…ask my husband.
What advice would you give other writers?
Write about characters and story lines you want to read about. Don't forget, Rome wasn't built in a day and writing skills come with failure and practice.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I always wanted to write and publish a book. It took me years to finally write something I believe should be published though. I believe everyone has a brilliant story hidden inside them. I think if you keep working at it, eventually you'll find plots that you love and characters you can't part from, and the story just writes itself.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I believe the world of publishing is changing drastically. Never in history has there been the kind of opportunity for authors that the internet has now offered.
