What’s the best writing advice you ever received?
Take the criticism people give you, but don’t let it change the story you see in your head and heart. Just write your story and stay true to it, no matter what. You can’t make everyone happy, though you may try.
Which one of your characters is your favorite and why?
I’d have to say my favorite character of mine would be Dani. She is a bad ass and I love that bitch. And it’s funny, because there is a lot of me in her; some of how she was before and some of how she is now. Some of her fears or experiences are mine as well. And some of her characteristics are things that I wish I had. She’s amazing. And I know people will either love her or hate her, but I LOVE her 🙂
If someone offered to option one of your books or stories for a movie or TV series, which one would you choose?
I’d have to say Defying Destiny, though it’d be great to have the whole series as a movie or TV show. This series is my very first and I’m so in love with the way it’s shaping out and the characters in all the books.
Do you consider being a writer a gift or a curse?
I guess I’d have to say both. It’s a gift because to be able to express things that you feel or stories in your head is truly amazing and should only be described as a gift. But it’s also a curse because sometimes readers want things to go one way and you as the writer see it differently. And sometimes you see it going a certain way and even though it breaks your heart, you have to stay true to the story.
Which one of your characters would you want to date and why?
I’d have to say it’d be a character that I’m writing right now. I can’t share too much just yet, but he’s dark and ruthless, but loyal and loves hard. I can’t wait to introduce him to everyone 😉 But I will say that all of my male characters have something in them that calls to me, so if I could, I’d date them all LOL
