What do you think about the current publishing market?
There has never been a better time to be a writer. Hands down, the opportunities have never been greater. That having been said, it is also that much harder to be seen, as the market place becomes more crowded. Indies have to be nimble and creative, not only in their writing, but also in their marketing. A career as an indie author is not for the faint of heart.

Do you read yourself and if so what is your favorite genre?
I don’t know how one can write and not be a reader. Fantasy is my number one go to, but I like a good mystery too.

Do you prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why?
I always have music playing. Silence gets to me after a while. I think because writing is so solitary, that music fills the void, so you do not feel so alone. Especially for someone like me, who lives alone.

Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?
Several, although I don’t like to do that as I lose my momentum switching between projects.

If you could have been the author of any book ever written, which book would you choose?
HARRY POTTER AND THE PHILOSOPHER’S STONE.

Pen or type writer or computer?
Computer.

Tell us about a favorite character from a book.
Rand (Eye of the World, Wheel of Time) and Richard (Wizard’s First Rule, The Sword of Truth). Harry & Hermione (Harry Potter) I love a good coming of age story, which is why I chose to write YA fantasy fiction.

What made you want to become an author and do you feel it was the right decision?
It’s in my blood. How can honoring my blood be wrong?

What is your writing process? For instance, do you do an outline first? Do you do the chapters first?
The sum total of my outline is a one sentence purpose statement for the chapter to follow. Forty sentences, forty chapters. And done.

What is your writing Kryptonite?
Facebook. Such a time suck, but a necessary tool to interact with other authors.
