When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?
I find the ones that follow the first book because I suck at keeping track of timelines and details. I have a notebook for a series and I still forget things.
What comes first? The plot or characters
Characters – I don’t plot. I’ll take notes but that’s about it.
What author would you love to meet (Who is your unicorn author)?
Tijan and Lily White. They are both my unicorn authors!
If you could ask that author three questions about their writing, writing process, or books, what would they be?
Um…well I’ve talked to both of them so…I guess I would ask Lily to help me get deeper into the dark subjects I write about. Go beyond the blood and gore kind of thing.
What is harder? The blurb writing, naming the book, or naming the series.
The blurb. Always the freaking blurb.
What is your favorite memory so far as an author?
Meeting and interacting with readers! So this would include all of the book signings I’ve been to as well!
What is your definition of success?
Besides being able to quit the day job of course, which I think is a goal for a lot of authors – I think I’m pretty successful. Sure, I don’t have a movie deal or anything but I have readers. They are what keeps me going and striving to be a better author, person, etc. I really couldn’t do this without them.
