What inspires you to write romantic fiction?
I love observing and analyzing people. I want to be able to portray emotional, passionate, and organically developing relationships.
Tell us about how you write.
I scribble and jot down random things that might be relevant, write diary entries like my characters and describe their personality traits, research, outline, more research, rewrite outline several times, cry in my sleep (just kidding).
Do you listen to or talk to to your characters?
I should talk to them. But no, I like to get in their heads and see if I can emulate them. I'm a very invasive writer. 😀
What advice would you give other romance writers?
Different strokes for different folks. Research what you want to write about and how it best appeals to your audience. And practice! Write, write, write.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I'm on a bit of a time crunch, so I decided to self-publish so I could be more independent and have more freedom with my deadlines.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
It's crazy accessible and kind of overflooded. But that makes it exciting to try and fight against the current. At the same time, books are so much more affordable now, so there are so many possibilities out there.
Which romance sub-genere(s) fit your stories best?
My books are available in the following formats:
