I wrote poetry in high school, but nothing serious. I guess the real itch to write novels came while I was reading a book and started considering what I would've have done differently. Then the ideas just started popping up and I couldn't stop them.
I can't really say a favorite author. I love so many, especially my Indie friends! And even though it's still hard to have just one favorite book, I do have one that always sticks with me. The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas.
I wanted to do something paranormal, though something a little different. I'm sure there are many stories involving wishing wells, but it's not something you see all the time in the paranormal world. I also put my own spin on the idea.
The Line That Breaks is actually the conclusion, so just 2 books. If anything happens in the future, it will be a prequel of sorts. I'm not making any promises, though.
My next WIP is heading in a different direction. It's a new adult romantic suspense. It's still in the very early stages. I'm hoping to have it out before August, but I'll probably need a lot of luck and a lot of caffeine to make that happen because I'm a slow writer.
I'm a bit of a hermit. I do love adventure and to go exploring, but I'd usually rather stay home with my family or go vacation with my extended family, who live pretty far away.
Vanilla, unless it's something yummy like M&Ms.
Write. Read. Write. Research. Write.
Write and read whenever you can. When you can't do one, do the other. And when you can't do either, observe. Observe and take notes, preferably on pieces of paper, napkins, or your phone's note app so you don't forget later like I always do. Listen to conversations, watch interactions, observe it all. It will enhance your writing. Research information for your stories and for your career. It's not an easy business. There are challenges no matter what path you choose, Indie or Traditional publishing, but keep at it and go for what you want!
