​ It actually only took a few sittings to write the book, as it’s short. Do you outline? For the illustrations, we did many story boards. So, she really gets all the credit! We are winging it. Are your characters entirely fictitious or have you borrowed from real world people you know? No outline. How […]

Do you have a marketing plan for the book or are you just winging it? I took a few months off to travel, complete my Chicago bucket list, and write the first draft of Society Girl. While history buffs are going to be naturally drawn to the story, the plot contains so much relevance to […]

Was it a particular event or a gradual process? The epic story of a grim personal mission, Transference takes the reader on a heart-racing journey through rebellion, revenge, self-sacrifice, and the soul’s search for identity. Publisher rejection and the fear of failure were probably the two biggest reasons I shelved the book for so long. […]

I’m very satisfied. Once you turn that facet on, as it runs, it can be pretty exceptional what you rediscover. And you will. “Sentiments of Youth” captures within its pages what it means to be young while growing older. It was around two years after my debut collection ‘laundry’ was published, and I felt as […]

If yes, what gets the fingers tapping? Also, a sequeal to my political satire, Wokeistan: A Novel, which I co-wrote with Christian Beranek. They quickly changed over time though, although my extended family is a great inspiration for the books. About the book What is the book about? This did not go unnoticed by the […]

The Kansas City, Missouri, area. Definitely. Fourth, mailing list. March 2018. Did you get your book cover professionally done or did you do it yourself? She’s been awesome for me. Intense, but not scary. If yes, what gets the fingers tapping? I find myself debating quietly about inserting a comma or not, and I have […]

Do you edit as you go or wait until you’ve finished? I love the creative freedom it grants me. Jon Henrik Fjällgren, Elin Kåven, Mari Boine, Jonna Jinton and Sophia Jannok were all on the playlist. Don’t assume the work ends when you’ve finished the book. Each draft only took a month or less, but […]

I use my kindle, my tablet, and my phone to access library apps, reading apps, and subscription services to get books for free or for very affordable prices all the time in addition to those that I buy in hardcopy. Authors looking to get their books reviewed should actually pay attention to the reviewer’s profile […]

If so can you please describe it? Thinking that long words would trip up my kids, I looked for books with only short words. “Wait,” you say, “that’s a different book!” You’re right. Joanna and I finished the 3 books: Y, BO, GO UP!, and Cat Egg. Get your copy of   Bo, Go Up! […]

So, if I write a dark, depressing scene, the character’s feelings transfer to me, and I’ll be in a heavy mood for a while. Do you edit as you go or wait until you’ve finished? Did you get your book cover professionally done or did you do it yourself? First, I write out a general […]

Imagine not seeing the sun for a year…not even a flower. When you’re on the roll, you’re on the roll. As for the Hollywood actress, I won’t say who, but I hope she’ll read it and send me an email with her thoughts. So, the actress came first before the protagonist. They may not be […]

Where do you live now? But that wouldn’t have worked for this kind of book. What would you like readers to know about you? Subsequently, there are a lot of gaps between the pieces which the reader is asked to fill. What made you decide to go Indie, whether self-publishing or with an indie publisher? […]

​ A little over 3 years. You have to pick your challenge. ​I’m an indie filmmaker as well! You can spend your time trying to appease other people, or you can take charge of your own project. I’m a perfectionist, so it typically takes me a while to get a full draft out that I’m […]
