Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
This is my first release
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
One Red Sock was written around an idea I had for a particular scene, Once I figured out how to get the characters to that scene the rest fell in to place and the characters told the rest of the story for me.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Being an artist most of my life, I like to storyboard and draw out some of the scenes. I try not to write out the whole story though and let the characters dictate how it flows and not force things the way I want them initially.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
What are you working on now?
I am currently working on another supernatural suspense story and a children’s book in between when I need a break and want to do some drawing. I have plans for several more books and am working on my writing nightly.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I have not discovered this yet and look forward to the adventure
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Don’t be fearful to chase your dreams. You will hear many times how there are so many people that want to do what you are trying and it will be tough. Don’t let that discourage you or stop you. Just feel good about completing it. I would guess most people never even get that far. Then try to keep improving and focus on completing the next one. Whether you succeed or fail shouldn’t drive you or how many books you sell. Just follow your passions in life and enjoy your moments of tranquility when you lose yourself in your story and your characters. If others feel the same way and enjoy it, you might succeed financially eventually. But know you have already succeeded just by completing it and feel proud of yourself. You can’t catch a dream if you never chase it.
