What inspires you to write romance books?
As an author I believe that every great story in literature is essentially a love story. There may be a variety of elements but the love and romance elements are crucial.
Tell us about how you write:
I like peace and quiet with the radio set at a low volume. An idea can come in many ways. Sometimes I have the ending first, other times the title of a book and then a story. All of it is random. I tend to be a seat of the pants writer. I do not believe in writing outlines or chapter by chapter notes. I feel that this method is limited and does not allow a person’s imagination to stretch because they are already following a set of ground rules.
Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I hear and see everything I write. When am writing dialogue I hear what my characters are saying, even what they are thinking.
What advice would you give other writers?
Read romance books. Movies are also great for imaging. A great movie can deliver countless emotions because there is so much going on at once.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I started with a publisher and began to feel as if I was just a name in a database and not really receiving the attention that I wanted, so I decided to self-publish. My advice to new authors is unless you are represented by a giant publisher like Random House and you have a machine behind you, you are pretty much better off self-publishing.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I am old-fashioned so I love a good paperback or hardback. However, I believe that electronic publishing will become more and more prominent over the years.
