My life as a writer—I can think of nothing I would like more than writing stories PERIOD!
That is what drives me. I see someone talking on a cell phone as they are walking down the street and that tiny scene inspires a book. And that scene may never make it into the book.

Once i saw a sign on a restaurant that said Happy Birthday Olivia…that inspired me to write about an older woman and a younger man…each of them looking for their place in the world.
Last week someone I know lost their temper…that inspired me to kill him in my book I am writing right now.

My life as a writer—there is nothing that replaces the feeling of accomplishment when I finish a book and it gets published. I love writing.

And you need to watch out…you may just end up in one of my books.
