1. What do you wish people would ask you about your writing?
ANYTHING. I love to talk about it. I could bore people for hours about how I got started, where I get me inspiration, etc.
It's one of my favorite topics of conversation ( or perhaps monologue)
2. Which of your characters would you most like to meet and why?
Hmmmm, I think I've already have met them. I spend a lot of time walking around with characters in my head before I write about them. I put them into a lot situations and watch them react. Then I decide if I like them well enough to put them in a story. Sometimes they just don't flesh out enough and I abandon them, but not often.
As a committed NaNophile with 8 years under my belt, I have noticed that come March or April characters will start floating around in my head and I'll grab onto to a couple and start the dance I just described. By the time November comes around, I'm ready to write.
By then, we're old pals.
3. What do being a pastry chef and writing have in common?
That's an interesting question. Not being schooled in either endeavor, I tend go by feel..
I seem to be able to sense ahead of time what will work out and what won't, whether it's a new recipe or story line. I have some mechanics in both areas, but I run a lot on instinct and, 'well how bad could it be?'
Over time it all seems to gel pretty well and then I have the confidence to keep going.
