SYNOPSIS VIA GOODREADS:
- What is on your nightstand?
I don’t have a nightstand, but beside my bed is a stack of leather bound Hemingway novels, topped with a ginormous Walt Disney biography; a tote full of TBR novels; and two library books—The Martian, which has been read and is ready to return, and Dumplin, which is currently being read.
- What author would you totally fan?
Stephen King. He did a talk in KC last year and when he came out on the stage, I actually cried.
- What makes you cringe?
Social media. I’m not good at it.
- Since it is NaNoWriMo month, do you have any encouraging words for writers?
Don’t worry about perfection. You will be surprised how much more awesome your words will sound to you on December 1st than they do right now. Just keep going forward—no time to look back!
- Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
Depends on the project. Normally, I totally go with the flow. If I get too “plotty,” I feel like I’ve told the story and lose motivation. But when it’s a complex story with a lot of interweaving storylines, like in Shade Me, I have to do some pretty detailed plotting, just to keep everything straight.
And you know it wouldn’t be BookHounds without Hounds (and cats)
