When did you first decide you wanted to be a writer?

"Writing has always been a way of life for me. I never made a conscious decision to write. It was something I did since childhood starting with poems then short stories."

Where do you get your information or ideas for your stories?

"Ideas can come for everywhere: you hear someone say something, a sentence in a book you're reading, a dream, something you read in a newspaper, your own solitary imagination. What you have to do when you get an idea that inspires you, be sure to write it down."

Do you put yourself in a character role when you write? "No."

What is your preferred genre of writing?
"I love to write inspirational romances, suspense novels and children's stories. These are the three I balance out."

What do you think makes a good story?
"Characters and their motivations the reader can get involved with and the motivations of the characters feelings and actions, then incorporating these in the situation."

What is the most challenging part of the writing process for you? "Editing."

What does audio production bring to your story?
"A feeling of involvement in the character's lives."

Are you planning to write any novels in the future?
"I have written two novels that are now being reviewed by publishers."

What are you currently working on?
"A new children's book, and two suspense novels."

What do you like to do when you're not writing?
"Visit with family, listen to music, draw."
