Do you have an organized process or tips for writing well? Do you have a writing schedule?

I don’t have much of a schedule, except that I like to crank out about 10,000 words a week. As long as I keep doing that, I stay in a rhythm and can turn out a first draft in about two-and-a-half months. Unless migraines and insomnia get in the way :(

Sometimes it’s so hard to keep at it – What keeps you going?

My love for the people in my head. As long as I keep writing about them, they live on. I get to flirt with them, fall in love with them, and protect them, over and over and over again. Plus, if I didn’t give all the people in my head a chance to speak, I’d have to be heavily medicated.

What do you hope people will take away from your writing? How will your words make them feel?

If I’ve provoked any feelings at all – whether I’ve repulsed you or aroused you – then I’ve done my job.

What’s your next project?

SILVER: Lex Talionis (Outlier Trilogy #1, SILVER Series #8). Be prepared: worlds are colliding … well, they’re brushing against one another very gently. Ella ‘Silver’ Cross meets Carmen Wild from The Prisonworld Trilogy.

Last book you purchased? Tell us about it.

I bought Bones in Her Pocket by Kathy Reichs. It’s her first novelette ebook, and it was okay. I liked the first two thirds of it, then it ended with something completely random which seemingly had no real connection to the rest of the book. I felt like she was using the book as a way to promote her views about the cruelty of puppy mills. Which is fine. Puppy mills are cruel and should be shut down. But if you’re writing a book, at least weave your message into the storyline Don’t just throw it on top and expect it to blend.
