How do you work through self-doubts and fear?
I just keep writing. All authors have doubts. The ones that succeed recognize the doubts, nod politely to them, and write.
What scares you the most?
Publishing a book. No matter how much time I’ve spent on it and no matter how many editors have seen it, I’m still terrified to push the button that says “Publish.”
What makes you happiest?
Being alone in a forest, walking, and dictating a new story. All worries and doubts disappear and I’m lost in another world. The world of imagination.
Why do you write?
I began writing because it was fun and I could make up stories for my grandkids. But, now, I see my writing as a way for reluctant readers to discover the fun of reading.
Have you always enjoyed writing?
No. I spent much of my career in engineering and marketing where I was writing manuals and ad copy. No fun at all, but necessary. I never thought I would write willingly, but fiction is different—it’s fun.
