What did you first read? How did you begin to write? Who were the first to read what you wrote?
My husband and I were the first to read what I wrote. I have very supportive husband who looks after, encourages and motivates me.
What is your favorite genre? Can you provide a link to a site where we can read some of your work or learn something about it?
What is your creative process like? What happens before sitting down to write?
I write from personal life experiences.
What type of reading inspires you to write?
Do you share rough drafts of your writings with someone whose opinion you trust?
Do you believe you have already found "your voice" or is that something one is always searching for?
Do you write on a computer? Do you print frequently? Do you correct on paper? What is your process?
All done on my laptop.

I decided to self publish my own books. I have a brilliant husband who manages the whole publishing and marketing process.
What are you working on now?
My next two books - one due for release in April; the other later in the year.
What do you recommend I do with all those things I wrote years ago but have never been able to bring myself to show anyone?
Ask a friend or supportive loved one to read them.
