Who is your favorite author and what is it that really strikes you about their work?
I don’t really have a favorite author, but I read all the time. I like to read the commercially popular stuff listed in the New York Times Sunday Book Review. I’m strictly a commercial writer and don’t have a literary bone in my body. Reading is entertainment and should be easy and enjoyable, with good characters and a good story.
Where do you hope to take your writing in the future?
I hope to take my writing to a higher degree of competency and hope to make my characters so interesting the reader doesn’t want to put the book down. I like to entertain and be entertained and find the writing part more rewarding than marketing. I try to get my book out there in front of the public, but until an author gets national recognition, marketing takes a lot of time away from writing.
