Just what it says on the tin… These are from my Goodreads author page.
Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
Watching too much “Supernatural” and reading too much “Warriors”. (Honestly.)
How do you get inspired to write?
Mostly by what I read and watch. But also by song lyrics and things like paintings and photographs. Visual beauty.
What are you currently working on?
Volume 2 of the series. (As yet untitled, because I have the decision-making power of a sleeping llama.)
What’s your advice for aspiring writers?
Just keep trying. Don’t give up. Even when you feel like everything you produce is utter rubbish, don’t doubt your ability to create something important and special. It does take a lot of literal sweat and tears (and blood if you count papercuts on your hardcopy editing manuscripts). Listen to Churchill – “Never, never, never give up.”
What’s the best thing about being a writer?
Is there? Kidding. The creation of something that was in your head to page and text. Seeing your fictional world come alive.
How do you deal with writer’s block?
Scream a lot. Throw a pillow. Rue the day you decided to attempt this venture.
No, seriously, step away from your WIP. Maybe for a long time. Try writing something else, or nothing at all for a bit. Try reading new material, or watch a fun movie – distract your brain.
What mystery in your own life could be the plot for a book?
Why my husband loses his glasses so frequently, and where do they go when he’s sure he set them down elsewhere than the spot we find them in.
