I write every night for two hours before going to bed.
5 ) What gives you inspiration to continue writing ?
Gosh, I guess it’s the daily event of my life is what inspired me to keep writing. I like the freedom of pressing the buttons on my computer. Also, my travels and meeting influential people inspired me to write.
6) What has your experience been like as an indie author?
I like this question. As an indie author, “I am the writer of my own life.” It takes a lot of my time from writing, publishing and marketing plus my full-time job. For sure, it is not a piece of cake but it’s all worth it. I am having the time of my life. I learned extensive amount of time on how to publish on my own without any help.
7) What has been the biggest surprise you’ve experienced as an indie author?
Meeting so many people on social media surprised me a lot. People I don’t know are following me on Facebook friends, instagram and twitter. They are so supportive and so friendly. I give thumps up and smiley faces to all of them all the time. J
8) Any WIPs in the making?
Yes, I have WIPs. I am working on the second book of The Foreigner right now I am hoping to release it around March. That is my timeline.
9) Do you prefer to write stand on novels or a series?
The Foreigner is a series. I prefer series because I have a lot of stories to tell. However, I may try to do standalone.
10) Where do you draw your inspiration when creating a character?
When creating a character I based them on the people that influenced a lot. To me, they are all fascinating.
11) What is the most difficult thing about writing a character of the opposite sex?
Sometimes it’s hard when the character hijacked your story.
12) Do you try to be more original or to deliver what the reader wants?
In my opinion, I tried to be original but it depends on what the readers think of your story.
13) What is the main thing you want readers to take away from your book?
The bad guy! lol
14) What would you like to say to readers and fans?
I enjoyed writing The Foreigner a lot. I poured my heart and soul to it. To be honest, I cried and laughed while writing. I hope my readers will enjoy it as much as I do.
