I've been writing in one form or another since I was a teenager. My love of the Fantasy genre goes all the way back to elementary school when I read The Hobbit for the first time - I've been hooked ever since. I currently live in Florida with my family, but love the state of Virginia where I was born. My works include poetry, short stories, and book two in my YA Fantasy series, Realms of Chaos, is now in process.

Pen or typewriter or computer?
Computer! I can’t stand to think of the time I’d waste transcribing from paper.
Describe what is your writing process? For instance do you do an outline first? Do you do the chapters first?
I have a process of note taking – ideas mostly at first. I add to these notes over the period of weeks, sometimes months. From these notes I create a more organized outline and add to it, as with the notes, over a period of weeks or months layering in detail for individual scenes as I go. Using the detailed outline I begin writing. I set daily work count goals and goals for finishing chapters as well as a timeline for finishing my first draft. After the first draft is completed I do a round of editing then send to beta readers and finally my editor. Following incorporation of edits and beta feedback I make a listing of areas to revisit for plot strengthening, rework, more description etc. then research and make those changes. Last, I reread the entire manuscript before submission, tweaking and editing as I go.
What can we expect from you in the future?
Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?
I typically am writing one novel at a time, but on an ongoing basis I have other projects at various stages, i.e. note taking or outlining. Almost always I have several short stories in the works also.
