This is a frequent question that I am asked. My answer is simple. Nothing inspires me to write. I become inspired from the story that I am writing. I am inspired to create new world and characters that people come to love.
How did you become a writer?
Sit down and write - don't give up. You can always edit sentences, chapters, paragraphs and books. You can't edit a blank page.
How do you find time to write?
Writing is my job, so is promoting. There has to be a balance between the two. Remember you can promote all you want, but in the end, the book has to be ready to go or your promotions are for nothing!
When did you start writing?
I've always written to some degree. I just never thought anyone would want to read it! I started publishing Jan 2014.
What other books are in the works?
Beautiful Betrayal, Hour of Darkness, Fall in Love, and of course a lot more from Leigh.
Do you have an education? - Yes, I really do get this a lot!
Yes. My Bachelor's Degree is from the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh. I will finish my Master's Degree this fall at the University of Wisconsin Stout.
I have a great idea for a story - can you write it for me?
No. I'm sorry, I can't. If you have a great idea for a story, by all means, write it down. Write a paragraph a day, but keep writing!
Can you read over a book that I have written?
No, I'm sorry, i can't and you shouldn't want me too. I can't read anything that doesn't have a copyright on it. Please don't ever let someone read your book if you don't have the copyright done! They can take your work, copyright it and publish it without you ever knowing... Then what? You publish and they come after you... http://www.copyright.gov/register/sound.html
Will you help me promote my book?
Honestly, I only promote the books and authors that I have read and know personally. My readers expect that I will be honest with them. That is a trust that I cannot break.
