Start at a younger age, follow your dreams.

Shock and awe. I still can't believe that it got published!

Q.10 What is one stereotype about fantasy writers is absolutely wrong? What one stereotype is dead on?

Vampires! for sure. I think they are sexy and mystical.

A.
They are supportive and proud of me.

Q.16 How do you develop your plots and characters? Do you use any set formula?

I do not use a formula, I have a very vivid imagination. I think up a bad guy what he/she would want how would they get it. What is the weakest link where can their plan be ruined, how can the good guys win, or if I should let the bad guys rule. I like to add lots of twists to keep my readers on their toes.

Q.17 What advice do you have for aspiring authors?
A.
Never give up, grow from the feedback and you must have thick skin. Not everyone is going to love your work.

A.
It has been a rollercoaster ride of emotions and nerves.
