  1. Tell me a bit about one of your favorites that you wrote.

I enjoyed writing ‘Sinister Little Overture: Book I’ of my Symphony Noir Collection. It was fun to write because I explored situations that are considered taboo, and I got to let my imagination run wild in regards to how far I can push the envelope with some of the scenes. Creating the sexual tension between the main characters made it thrilling and exciting because, come on…. some of us have been in those types of circumstances before!

 

  1. Writing is a difficult endeavor. What makes you continue to write?

I don’t make lots of money, so it’s not that. I’m barely a blip on the radar in regards to my author brand and name, so it’s not the fame. The answer is simple: The love of writing is what makes me continue on.

 

  1. What do you look forward to every day?

Waking up nearly every morning before everyone else, making some coffee and doing my edits and writing. It sets the tone for the day, although I try not to let a missed session dictate how my day is going to be.

 

 

  1. How do you define success? What makes you successful?

Sure, success would be making a six-figure salary off of one’s books, doing tours and signings around the world, meeting millions of adoring fans. But that’s someone else’s success and would be mine one day. But for now, success is getting up in the morning and writing. And what makes me successful is not only committing to my sessions on paper by scheduling, but mentally preparing for them as well. Having that discipline takes practice and time. When I tell people, I have four books published, they’re like, ‘wow, that’s awesome!’ And to me, that’s success.

 

 

  1. Any tips for a newbie writer?

I’ve been a published author for nearly three years, so it’s safe to say I’ve been there done that. So, for anyone looking to join this endeavor, just start writing! Get it out of your head and onto paper! This was the advice given to me back in 2010 from a great friend of mine (who still is), and I did just that: I started to write. Therefore, my current books were years in the making.

 

It doesn’t have to be perfect, just get it down on paper. If you don’t like it, delete it then start over. You can always change things later. Even if the writing is just a bunch of notes, start with that. You can build upon it later. In the words of Ernest Hemingway, my favorite author, “There is nothing to writing. All you have to do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed.”
