I love to travel, draw, listen to live music, take scenic walks, sometimes involving a stop at Starbucks, and swim in the ocean.
Okay, technically nobody asked me this, but I'm ready if somebody does! Playing guitar in a rock band, skateboarding, and surfing are all things I'd love to try.
My ideas come from everywhere. I can get an idea from reading an odd news story, watching TV, reading, listening to music and from my past experiences. The most important thing I do is listen to the world around me.
Read and then read some more. Don’t be afraid to brain dump (write whatever is on your mind) and most importantly join a critique group of supportive peers.
I have a couple of projects going at once. Since I write everything from young adult fiction to picture books, its nice to be able to switch back and forth between the different projects. Hopefully, i'll have more news soon!
