Why do you write fiction?
I love writing fiction because it allows the reader to dive into another world, feeling emotions and living a new life.
Please tell us about your book. What ideas or images inspired this novel?
Fallen Leaves is the second story in the Family Tree series. This set of stories is about having spiritual guides who help shape your life. As the family keeper, Amber Harrison is assigned the task of convincing her grandmother’s ghost to cross over and let go of her shadowy existence. Meanwhile, she also struggles to make room for a new love in her life.
Do you have an ideal reader in mind when you write? If so, please describe that reader.
No. I write what I love. I know other readers enjoy what I do and want to share the adventure.
Please describe your writing routine.
I start the day doing all my online stuff – email, twitter, blogs, promo, etc. As soon as I’m finished, I start writing. I try to write 2,000 to 3,000 words a day. Sometime this happens; sometimes it doesn’t. I just keep working until I get the book done. Then I spend weeks rewriting, revising, and making changes. I send the manuscript to my editor and then it’s published.
What advice do you give new writers just starting out?
Don’t give up. Do what you love and follow your dream. Remember: This is a marathon, not a sprint. It can take years to reach the best-sellers list. Then they’ll call you an overnight success.
