Your bio says you sold your first series in 2014, but when did you actually start writing the books?
How did you go about finding an agent/publisher?
What is the hardest part of writing for you? Starting? Dialog? Tension, etc?
The hardest part is keeping the middle from sagging.
What’s the best encouragement you’ve had in your writing?
I try to avoid reading reviews since once a book is out there, it doesn't belong to me anymore and there's nothing I can do to change it. However, whenever I happen to see something nice on social media, it warms my heart more than I can say.
We have all experienced rejection. Give me an example of one you’ve had, and how you learned to write past it.
I'm atypical in that rejection never brought me down. Really. Rejection was proof that I was in the game, and you have to be writing and submitting to get anywhere. Rejection is just a part of that.
What has surprised you the most in writing/publishing?
The most surprising thing is that once an editor buys you and your book is finished, you don't have to start over from square one with the next book. As long as it sells sufficiently well, they are waiting for you to write another.
What do you know now about writing that you wished you had known sooner?
I wish I'd started sooner.
What is the best writing advice you’ve received or could give?
There is a well-defined craft for every genre, and you have to learn it. There's no shortcut.
Are there any other points about writing that you would like to add?
You will know you're cut out to be a writer when the difficulties of finishing a book and getting it published don't deter you.
What is the next book that will be coming out? Can you give me a short synopsis?
Right All Along is already pre-ordering for a 9/25/18 launch! It's about childhood friends who reunite and discover that time apart has only deepened their feelings for each other:
