What did you first read? How did you begin to write? Who were the first to read what you wrote?
I was a pretty big series reader. I absolutely loved Alfred Hitchcock's The Three Investigator series. Then Roger Zelazny's Amber Series of course and Philip Jose Farmer's Riverworld series.
Though I read a LOT I didn't actually entertain writing until college. The stories were in my head though and many of them still are.
The first and only person to read what I wrote was my best friend from college. She's also the one who inspired me to keep writing even though I'd no plans at that time of being published.
If you want to thank someone for pushing me to publish, you can thank Teresa. I never thought my stories were good enough.
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?
I absolutely love writing speculative. My first series has to do with vampire/werewolf lore. In 2007 Never Ceese was short-listed for a Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in a First novel. Its sequel Forever Richard garnished a book blurb from The British Fantasy Society.
You can get more information at my site: www.foreverrichard.com or my publishers site at www.thewriterscafe.com
What voice do you find most to your liking: first person or third person?
"Third person," she replied. "Though I wouldn't mind giving first person a shot some day. I'll have to wait until my editor is up to it."
What well known writers do you admire most?
John Grisham, Anne Rice (though I've never read her work) *gasp*
Deep down inside, who do you write for?
No one. I just have to get the story out of my head to make room for a new one. :)
What sites do you frequent on-line to share experiences or information?
And that is in order of preference.
What are you working on now?
The third book in my Thirsting For Blood series, Cyn No More. The list in this series will then be:
