I had just purchased my full-priced Kindle when I realized Amazon was selling less expensive versions that came with “special offers” (ads instead of the pretty drawings). For some reason, my warped brain thought it would be amusing if what made the cheaper Kindles special was that they came with some fiendish spirit. Originally, I imagined something like a havoc-wrecking poltergeist, but that quickly changed into the annoying, yet ingratiating, Sebastian.
Q) How long did it take you to write?
It took about six months of writing, mainly in the evenings and on weekends. Those pesky day jobs really get in the way sometimes.
Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
Letting the story out of my head is very satisfying. As the characters’ personalities unfold, it is like developing a relationship with them.
Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?
The hardest part is working through a block. It’s tough to write when you’re stuck, and I find that trying to power through doesn’t usually work well for me. I’m better off doing something else and coming back to it later. It’s also difficult to write on a restricted schedule. Sometimes I have great ideas, but I have to go to work instead of having a chance to write. I leave notes to myself constantly with snippets of dialogue or plot lines so I won’t forget. For some reason, I get lots of ideas while driving.
Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
Wonder Woman. I really love the boots. And the lasso of truth isn’t too shabby either.
Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
I think there is a bottle of green olives from the Pleistocene. Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating. But they’ve been in there at least five years.
Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
The second book in the series — Special Rewards — was recently published and I am currently hard at work on the third.
