First, I'm very excited to have been invited to join a children's author blog hop by the sweet Gailya Keller. Be sure to click her name and hop back and check out her site and blog post as well. Her children's book The Secret of Smiley's Woods looks very interesting!
What are you working on right now?
Right now I'm looking into finding an illustrator for my other children's book that I have finished. It's about a teenage boy with disabilities and touches on some things in life that he has to face. I'm also working on two other young adult/adult books that I hope to have published sometime next Spring/Summer. One of them is goes with my recently released book "Haunted by the Past".
How does your writing process work?
I can't write if I push or force myself too. It just doesn't turn out well at all! So, I write when the next part of the story "hits" me - when God lays it on my heart. Sometimes that can be a little frustrating, but it's how my process works right now. It might change the more writing I do, but that's something only time will tell.
Who are authors that you most admire?
I like Frank Peretti's writing, as well as Penny A. Zeller's. They both can paint a picture really well and make you feel like you are right there in the story.
Where do you turn for instruction and inspiration?
I turn to God first and foremost for my inspiration. Without Him, none of the books I've written or that I'm working on now would be here. If I have simple questions I may ask friends and fellow authors, they are a tremendous help.
Thanks for stopping by a while! I hope you are enjoying the Hop!
