When you are writing a book, which is harder? The first book in the series or the others after it?

The ones later in the series always seem to be harder. When I’m starting the book, the sky’s the limit on what I can do. Once I’m farther in the series, I suddenly have to obey my own d*** rules, and that’s annoying, lol.

When writing a series how do you keep things fresh, for both your readers and also yourself?

When in doubt, I blow something up. Doesn’t matter if it’s a car, a relationship, a problem, or a fricking sofa. I like to keep things churning and changing as much as I can, so I’m always looking for a chance to turn everything on its head.

Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?

Pace yourself. Even if you binge write, plan on some time to rest in all that. No one is a machine.

On a typical day, how much time do you spend writing?

It varies wildly. Some days are all writing, some are only a small amount.

Do you have a favorite character that you have written? If so, who? And what makes them so special.

I love them all. I honestly cannot answer that.

What is your definition of success?

I love them all. I honestly cannot answer that.

Do you have anything you want to share that didn’t fit on one of these questions?

Thank you so much to the Twinsie Girls for welcoming me here!
