Visual, determined, consistent, scheduled, and evolving.

Notes on character names and story locations, pens, notepad, my tiger's eye stone carved into a heart shape, and a timer. I like to sprint when I write and revise.

Q5. What, to you, are the most important elements of good writing?

Character, setting, and knowing the path ahead.

Q6: What is the best advice you have ever heard?

If your first draft isn’t a mess, you haven’t done your job right. I love the idea that you should enjoy writing and allow yourself to write badly. After all, you can’t edit a page if you haven’t put a word on it.

Q7: What is your favourite genre to read?

I've been reading romance novels since I was young.

Q8: What comes first for you — the plot or the characters — and why?

Characters come first for me. I can put them in any plot but I have to know who I’m writing first.

At this moment I’m taking part in Camp NaNoWriMo. I’m revising the first book in my urban fantasy noir mystery series.

 Q10: What are you currently reading?
