Orange County, CA

  • Why do you write? 

Passionate to write.

  • What do you write about? 

I write mostly true stories.

  • Do you have a specific writing style?

My writing style is simple. I think of my titles, and write to them. There is no special order. I may start with chapter 5 and come back to chapter 9.

  • What are obstacles that come in the way of writing? 

I have no obstacles, when I put my mind to something I focus and make it happen

  • What’s the most memorable thing asked/said by a reader about your work?

I write just like regular people speak. I don’t choose to use words that cause people to Google it

  • How long have you been writing?

I have been writing since 1993

  •  When did you first realize you wanted to become a writer?

When I was in my early thirties.

  • What is your work schedule like when you are writing?

I spend at east 2 to 4 hours a day writing or researching

  • What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?

It’s hard to say

  • How long does it take to write a book? (if you’ve written one -published or non)

I have written a 218-page book within 14-days, 10 hours a day

  • Do you have suggestions on how to become a better writer?

Writer must focus on their work. You cannot have a lot of things going on at the same time. If you choose to write then write. If you choose to dance then go dancing

  • What challenges do you come across when writing/creating your story?

My challenges have been noise. I like things to be quite. If I have music on it’s turned down so low only I can hear it.

  • What do you think makes a good story?

A story about real events and people

  • What does your family think of your writing? 

They love my writing because I never sugar coat the truth

  • Do you see writing as a career?

I do see writing a career and a passion of mine

  • Do you have anything specific you’d like to tell the readers?

To my readers. Enjoy the book you read because so much goes into writing and editing a book. Get into the story and place yourself in the characters shoes. Get lost in the story.

  • When did you first consider yourself a writer?

I became a writer when I published my first book in the late eighties.
