How did you know you wanted to be an author? Having a degree in French and a love for language, writing seemed a logical fit for me. After trying my hand at screenwriting, it turned out my style was better suited for literature.
What is your advice for aspiring authors? Discipline and determination. You must write.
Do you have any writing rituals or practices?Because of my “day job” in finance, I usually need to take time off and focus solely on writing. Once I meet my accounting deadlines I can work for a couple weeks at a time on my writing. That allows me to fully switch gears from left to right brain. Over the years I've become a morning person and will settle in to write for six or seven hours a day. However, I keep goals i.e. 500-1000 words a day. If I don't meet the goal I'll keep writing as long as it takes.
What message to you want readers to remember?Connections are crucial. The metaphysical world is fascinating and links us all to each other and to the physical world.
How can fans get in contact with you?Social media has been a crucial tool for connecting to readers. It takes time, but is well worth it. As a rule, I always reply to readers' on Facebook, Twitter, email, at book signings, however they reach out. Reader feedback is incredibly helpful and encouraging and it's fun to talk about the process and discuss ideas.
