I Write for


Thank you, David Belt, for inviting me to be part of #MyWritingProcess. You can find out more about David here:

“We writers share these things, but informally during workshops and at conferences (and, for a handful of established writers, in printed interviews), but not so much through our open-forum blogs. With the hashtag #MyWritingProcess, you can learn how writers all over the world answer the same four questions. How long it takes one to write a novel, why romance is a fitting genre for another, how one’s playlist grows as the draft grows, why one’s poems are often sparked by distress over news headlines or oddball facts learned on Facebook… “

1) What am I working on?
 I am currently working on a fantasy novel that takes place in the distant past of a novel I recently completed. This story connects in important ways to my other story, but you will not have to read one to understand the other. In this story, a lone kingdom remains in the world, held safe from destruction my a magical barrier that must be conjured day and night around the kingdom. 
2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?
I believe that though it is a high fantasy story, it explores many different ideas, settings and characters that are not usually tackled in high fantasy. It is based completely on a mythology I created that will weave through the multiple books that should provide a more satisfying experience for the reader. 
3) Why do I write what I do?
 I have a very wild imagination. I've always been telling and enjoying fantasy and science fiction stories since I was a child, and I don't see myself stopping anytime soon. It is very satisfying to see an entire world come to life directly from your imagination. 
4) How does my writing process work?
I start with a "fencepost" outline, which helps me know where I'm going without dictating everything I have to do. I then work through a first draft as fast as I can without going back much, and then do several revision passes, each time focusing on different things, such as dialogue, characters, and spelling/grammar. 
Here are the next three writers I've invited to participate:
