Above anything, I’m a reader. And I cut my teeth on writers from the South. I love the descriptions of the zany characters and the sense of home. I wrote something I wanted to read.

Weight of Guilt

 

After reading the story, I thought “I can do that. I know about kids. My wife and I have six of them. I’m a high school teacher surrounded by kids every day. I can do that!” And so I did. But not without tons of failures and rejections.

One Prince, Two Kingdoms ARC - Jana Grissom

I have a huge dream. I want to find a way to personally GIVE a copy of One Prince, Two Kingdoms to every teenager in foster care. Not only do I want to give it to them, but I want to sit down and spend time encouraging them to chase their dreams and use their choices to be powerful!

If you have a story inside you, write it down. What you do with it after that might take exploring a lot of options, but it’s worth it. Everyone’s different, just like every story is different. You owe yourself the privilege of finding out how best to share your story with the world.

At last, democracy has reached the world of publishing! Yes, there are works that were published too soon and lack quality writing, revision or editing. But that issue will show itself in sales. Readers are the new agents of industry and the world is a better place for it.

So I write as much as I can of the bit where I don’t know enough, then find an expert to fill in the gaps. If you start with the expert (I have discovered) you end up with far too much information and (as you are NOT an expert) it can be hard to know what to cut out.

Christopher Moore was the first author I read who really made me want to be a writer. He mixes humor and feeling in a way that tells a truly entertaining story and I strive to do something similar.

Deep Deceit Book Cover 300-1 w review

 

The close friendship that evolved between the two main, female characters was easy to write because I’ve had similar experiences as an expat when a new friend takes you under her wing.

Worlds within Worlds

 

As with all my books, scenes just began appearing in my mind, so I wrote them down. After a while, I saw that these apparently diverse scenes did actually belong to one story.

Te BRiding In Cars With Girls

 

Music is a huge part of my life. And there are myriad musical references in my work – most of which are too obscure for most readers to notice, I’ve dropped several during this interview. But when I am actually writing, I need silence.
