Sell Your Books Today!
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk? Writing always happens with a dog or two under my desk, a cup of tea, and a cinnamon scented candle.
What do you like to do when you’re not writing? I love music, reading, dancing, my dogs, and British TV.
When did you write your first book and how old were you? As a Southern woman, my age is a rigorously guarded secret.
What does your family think of your writing? My husband loves my writing. The dogs are just under the desk patiently waiting for a break to play or get treats.
What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books? It’s hard to just let it go. Every time I proofread I feel something else must be written.
How many books have you written? Which is your favorite? Three. Two are instructional books on DIY publicity. The other is a collection of humorous essays.
Do you have any suggestions to help me become a better writer? If so, what are they I agree with every writer who says the best way is to read. Also to learn to edit, then get a good editor and let them do their job!
As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up? A scientist
How long does it take you to write this books? I’ve worked on this one about a year.
What is your work schedule like when you’re writing? Whenever I can sneak in time I grab it.
What brought you to write this book series? It saddens me when I see writers, musicians, artists or anyone who creates something magnificent yet can’t get it to the public because they can’t afford a publicist, don’t know how to do it themselves, or even worse don’t understand what a publicist can do for them.
How you become a published author? Any inspiration? Pray and push myself!
Where do you get your information or ideas for your books? For the instructional books I look for the best way to help people. For my essays they are true life stories that, even though crazy or awful at the time, are still funny if I put myself outside of the situation.
What’s next for you? What are you working on now? I’m working on a DIY publicity book for musicians.
