Introduce yourself to us
I live in Nova Scotia, Canada. I love to read. I love my cat. I collect cats, unicorns, and My Little Ponies. I have been reading since I was able to. I love my books. I started writing in high school when I had a lot of free time and classes. I started writing fanfic then when I took a writing course I started to write my own stories. I couldn’t get published except for a couple of poems so I left it for a long time. When I was laid off because of covid I started reading a lot then an idea started working around in my head. I started writing it all down, though not in a straight line then working from to beginning I filled out the middle. I kept working on it with the help of a beta reader I filled in plot holes and gaps and even created a character to fix a lot of holes that I couldn’t find a way to fix. Then I finally decided it was time to get it published.
Have you got anything you’re working on now?
The Strong Man Survives is the only book I have written so far. It’s my favorite, it’s my baby. I don’t know what gave me the idea for it. Sometimes when I go to bed and get ready to sleep I play little ideas in my mind, like you were watching a movie but with my own characters and plot. This idea came to me and didn’t want to seem to leave my brain so I just ran with it.
What’s your process?
I have no system whatsoever, I don’t think I do anyway. Something comes to mind I work on it in my head until I can get a chance to jot it down. I have an app on my phone that’s great for that, I can send my notes to my email. Sometimes after work, in the evening, or even days off I just wander into my rec room and jot out whatever happens to be floating around in there while I’m watching videos. I go as far as I can with a scene then stick it in my folder then work on something else, eventually, it will start falling into place and I can get it into a sequence.
Who are some of your favorite authors?
Morgan Brice, Bobbi Holmes, Rhys Everly, Lee Child. Meghan Maslow
