Bio provided author’s site
1. What makes for a good hook in your stories? Where does your inspiration come from?
I try to come up with something that will have the reader begging for more.
2. Are you an organized writer? Do you do things like take notes and make lists of characters? Or do you free write and work it out as you go?
Sometimes I am organized, but for the most part I am not. I do character sketch for my antagonist and protagonist. I do a smaller sketch for some of the other characters as well. Sometimes I find free writing to be more easy however, I am currently working on a chapter book that I have outlined the chapters and things that will happen during them which is different than my norm.
3. What is your normal writing day like? Do you write when you are inspired or do you have a schedule?
Usually I am working on 2 to 3 stories at a time. Right now I have been going back and forth on 3 stories, 2 of them are middle grade children novels, and the other is a romance drama.
