How did you start writing? Did you always want to become an author?
Thanks for asking. I knew I was a writer from an early age.
My first short story
was published when I was fourteen. I've continued writing and studying the
craft over the years to become skilled doing something I love. It's a never-ending
process of reflection and discipline to produce new novels.
Do you have other work besides writing? Or did you do other
you started writing?
Which is your favorite type of weather for writing and why?
I love all the seasons in the year. The burst of creative
I experience fits the mood for the settings I create.
Which is your favorite place on earth and why?
My favorite place is the beach, specifically the beaches of
The crystal white sand and the pale turquoise gulf is a great place to relax
and recharge mentally and physically. The soothing movement of the waves
tapping the shoreline in mesmerizing harmony is therapeutic.
I've found that whether people live there full time or are
just visiting, they
seem to have a different way of going about their day when proximity to
the ocean is a variable. For me, I like my toes in the water.
I've read some wonderful thrillers of yours. Do you like/write
I mostly write mystery-thrillers. However, I've written a
historical romance novel,
Cross-Ties, and a personal development book, Cross-stepping Your Way to Success.
Do you prefer to write alone or in company?
Do you have a fixed daily writing schedule?
which ranges from 4 to 5 A.M. He sits on my arms as I go through my morning
ritual of checking social media, then he sulks when I have to shoo him away as
I work on my novels.
Where do you get your inspiration from besides traveling?
Travel is my muse but with the pandemic I've been sidelined.
I'm interested in world affairs particularly those with the potential
to destroy mankind like climate change.
Do you like to listen to music or watch television while working?
for me. I enjoy being alone with my thoughts during the writing process.
What are your plans and wishes for 2021 and the nearby future?
I'm excited about what comes next!
