When did the desire to write first become real to you?
When I read Ted Dekker and Frank Peretti’s novel “House,” I knew I could write stories like that.

What is the genre you write in?
I write in no specific genre.  I have many stories in mind that could be published in different genres but my current novel will published under paranormal/fantasy

What is your current WIP (work in progress)?  Please tell us about it.  What was the inspiration for this project?
It’s called “The Hollisters” and it’s about good and bad genies battling for human souls.  I didn’t have any inspiration for the story; I came up with a random name and went from there.

Do you belong to any writing critique groups (either local or online)?
I’m a member of www.christianwriters.com

What is your process for editing your work?
I write the chapters in a notebook then revise as I type them in the computer.  Then I print them out and revise again.

Do you have a mentor or writing coach?  Do you have a role model?
Ted Dekker is my role model.

How would you define what being a successful writer means?
A writer is someone who is bold enough to buy a notebook and pens.  A successful writer is someone who is bold enough to put that pen on paper.

Do you have advice for other novice writers?
Laugh at your critics after you finish drying your tears.  It helps.

What is your writing schedule like? When do you find the time to write?
I either wake up at seven in the morning and write, or I’ll write late at night.  I write 1,000 words in my novel (sometime I write 500), and I try to finish an article or two.
