How did you know you wanted to be an author?: I was 13 when I wrote my first book, and it was right after I saw Star Wars. I knew then that writing great stories was what I was meant to do.
What is your advice for aspiring authors?: Understand the English language. Understand your craft. Learn how to write - and study the genre you want to write in. Educate yourself, practice, and never give up. Be prepared for what you want to do.
Do you have any writing rituals or practices?: I get up early, burn candles, study my outline, and get rolling. I've got everything down to a system - and it works.
What message do you want readers to remember?: Dreams are possible - it took me thirty years to achieve mine, but when it took off, it was greater than I ever imagined. Never give up on your dreams!
