Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am a writer who lives on the beautiful west coast of British Columbia. I’ve only been writing for a few years having been inspired by a good friend who is also an author. My debut novel, In Her Mind’s Eye, was published on Amazon in June 2015.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My debut book is entitled, In Her Mind’s Eye. It’s a psychic thriller. I was inspired by a life-long fascination with the paranormal and an interest in abhorrent behaviour. In another life, I think I could have been a detective or a psychiatrist.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I wrote my novel by hand — that way, I could write anywhere or anytime an idea came to me.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I have read a lot of Dean Kootnz and Stephen King. They are both masters of their genre.
What are you working on now?
I am working on a sequel to my first novel.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I have author pages on both Facebook and Goodreads.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
As a new author, there are so many things I wish I had known:
– Have several people read through your manuscript.
– Get your manuscript professionally copy-edited.
– Do your homework before you approach literary agents
– If you can’t find a literary agent, consider self-publishing.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Write what you know. In other words, write about things that interest you.
What are you reading now?
I just finished reading (and reviewing) an unpublished manuscript by a first-time author. It was excellent but isn’t ready for publication just yet.
What’s next for you as a writer?
I would love to work as a literary agent or do some editing. I love to read work by newly emerging authors, especially Canadian authors.
What is your favorite book of all time?
The Lord of the Rings series. Best series ever.
