Author Interview:

Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?  I think I’ve always been interested in writing, ever since I learned to spell the giant word “grasshopper” in 1st grade.

How long have you been writing?  I have been writing since I was in 3rd grade and realized one day that I didn’t have to wait for the teacher to assign a creative writing project to write something.  And yes, the first story I remember writing was more or less a romance novel about a boy I had a crush on.

When did you first know you could be a writer?  I don’t think there was ever a time when I didn’t think I could be a writer.  Like I said before, I grew up in a family of artists and creative-types.  Writing was tame compared to what some of them did.

What inspires you to write and why?  Love.  That’s it really.  My own romantic life is so pitiful that I love writing about people falling in love and ending up together in spite of the odds.  That and writing is like breathing to me: I can’t imagine not doing it without dying.

What genre are you most comfortable writing?  The easy answer to that is Romance.  But I also really like writing Science Fiction.  I always seem to write love stories, no matter what I write, but there are so many complexities to life and so many situations I can imagine people falling in love in that I need to explore.
