When did you begin your writing career? I was always excited about creative writing in elementary school but didn’t start writing an actual book until college. I wrote a few “practice books” throughout my undergraduate and master’s degrees and ultimately published my first book (Strange Luck) a few years after that. I’ve been writing books ever since.
What’s your approach to writing? Are you a “pantser” or a planner? Panster.
What’s your working style – morning or late-night writer? Morning.
Do you work at a computer or write long-hand? Computer.
What gets those words flowing, coffee or tea? Black Coffee.
Favorite book: Chocolat by Joanne Harris and Love in The Time of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez.
Favorite movie: The Dinner Game by Francis Veber
Favorite musician: Type O Negative is my all-time favorite band. A close contender is Summoning. I listen to them whenever I write.
