Favorite thing about being a writer: Sometimes I think it is being able to coach other authors. Other times I know it’s the experience of having people read and respond to my work. Sometimes I’m sure it’s bringing characters into the world and breathing life into them. Sometimes it’s seeing how they cope with the obstacles I drop in front of them. Sometimes it’s the joy of knowing that my words work.
Biggest challenge as an indie author: Getting the word out about my latest book, blog, or venture.
Favorite book: Usually the one I’m reading. As long as I care about the characters or am learning from the content I usually have a favorite book du jour.
