Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
After a few eye-opening years as a political journalist, followed by an outrageously fun time as a political speech writer, I fell in love with the art of writing fiction. My debut novel, A GLASS OF CRAZY, placed in the top five percent of the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award and received a favorable review from Publishers Weekly. SHE'S KILL CRAZY is my second novel.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
After taking an online course from James Patterson, I was inspired to write, SHE'S KILL CRAZY, a thriller.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I write from six in the morning until noon each day. I like to write as soon as I wake up, before my mind gets clouded with my own busy thoughts. After I write, I take a long bike ride and think about where my story is going next.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Stephen King and James Patterson have influenced me the most.
What are you working on now?
The novel I'm writing now is a mystery thriller and the word CRAZY will be in the title.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Best Book Store, My Book Place, Amazon, and Goodreads are some of the websites that promote my books.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
My advice to new authors is to learn the fundamentals of writing from the best.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
The best advice I've heard came from Stephen King: Don't revise your story because you're concerned about what someone will think.
What is your favorite book of all time?
My favorite book of all time is DAMAGE by Josephine Hart.
