Q is for...Questions

Q is for...Question

Since becoming an author, I've been asked more questions. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions and their answers.

1. When is book 2 for the Demon Hunters series coming out?
  I don't know for sure but probably by Fall 2016.

The cloud couch
2. What are your favorite writing conditions?
  Quiet music, sitting on the cloud couch with my laptop, & at least 2 uninterrupted hours to work.

3. Have you ever had writer's block and if so, how have you overcome it?
   Yes, I backtracked in my plot line and tried a new path. I knew it worked because the story flowed out of me quickly once I made the change.

4. Have you had any strange people try to friend you or chat you?
   Yes, I get a large amount of single military guys and middle eastern guys.

5. Where do you get inspiration for your stories?
   Characters are often inspired by people I know or have met. Plot lines can come from anywhere, songs, emotions I experienced, suggestions from people I love...

6. When did you decide to be a writer?
   It wasn't till 3 years ago when my dental hygienist encouraged me to write down a story that happened to me while I was young. She said it would be a great way to pay homage to them and their kind acts. I never thought, going into it, that I'd become a writer. But I thoroughly enjoyed the process of writing a book and continued with it.

If you have any questions for me...ask away!

Ah, Question-Day?! A great idea.
I missed one question: Do you know how your story will end when you start writing or does it envolve as your write? You might have answered this one already in your answer with the writer's block, but on never knows ;-)

Very good question Clao. Yes, I usually know how I want it to end but I NEVER know how I'm going to get there. Sometimes I'll tell my husband "here is where I am, and this is where I need to go...any thoughts?" And often the route to the end changes.

It sounds like you are writing yourself through parallel universes... You'll have to find the right one which leeds you to the place you want to go ;-)
