How do you deal with writer’s block?
Cry. Beg. Pray. Whine. Call for my mommy. Throw the covers over my head and block out the world.
Really though, I switch gears, turning to drawing, painting, reading, or gaming instead. That usually clears my clogged creative passages.
What’s the best thing about being a writer?
Talking to the voices in my head and people thinking there is nothing wrong with it.
What’s your advice for aspiring writers?
Read. Read. Read. Oh and read. Read until your eyes bleed. It is the only way to learn the true art of writing.
What are you currently working on?
The second book in my series Path of a Dreamer. As well as a children's book featuring a rotund little piggy that is currently wandering around my barnyard.

Reading, looking at/designing my own art, chasing chickens, dodging goats. The usual
Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
A dream when I was a preteen.
what's your biggest achievement?
That's a hard one. I guess buying our farm would be my happiest one. It was and is a dream come true.
What are future plans?
Keep pluggin along with life. Maybe I will be famous one day, maybe not. As long as I am doing what I love that is all that matters.
What books/works have most influenced your life?
Any of the classics. Wells, Poe, Alcott, Dickens, Twain, Orwell, Burgess, Shelley, and a ton of others I can't think of right now.
What are your favorite scenes to write and why?
Here's where I get to sound like a psycho. The bloody ones. No, I am not a crazy slasher person. I honestly hate those kind of movies, believe it or not. But getting into a mindset so different from my neutral setting, so completely opposite of who I am as a person. It is exhilarating and. Well. It's just plain ol' fun. *Insert maniacal laughter here and some bunny stroking to prove a point*
How many books do you plan on writing?
Too many. Far too many.
Are you ever going to make a coloring book with your sketches?
Yep. Or I plan to anyway. I would love to make a dragon or mythical creature coloring book!
Can you describe the time when you first realized that creating was something you absolutely had to do?
When the voices threatened to beat my ol' brain pan to bits from the inside out if I did not let them free.
