How has living in various places – Peru, Austria, Malaysia, New Zealand affected your writing? Do you think travel helps to inspire your work?
Our family traveled. In a car, a small car with 6 people. We did not get hotels. We did stop at all the zoos. I believe as you live in many cultures you can discover the beauty of each one.
Who or what inspired you to write short stories and when did you begin writing? I began to write as a way to quietly express myself. In a busy household, there was often not a lot of time to share my thoughts.
What are books or authors that have made an impact on you? The Bible. A wrinkle in Time read to me by my 5th grade teacher, Francine Rivers
Do you have a writing routine and what is your workspace like? I attempt to write on a daily basis. It is important for me to spill my guts about my life and clear the debris in order to write about the current projects. I often hear new ideas as I wake up and I keep paper and pen to draw and write criptig notes by my bed.
Can you share something about the book, or about you, that readers won’t know. I started writing this book as a project as I was traveling around the world.
