What made you want to be a writer?

I began to write at an early age but did not begin to work on it seriously until my 40's

Depends on the length of the book can take a year. Then I give it to my readers and after corrections send it to an Editor. It's very important to have it professionally edited.

Every writer has a different method. I can be inspired by something I see or something that is said and it all starts to flow, the characters take shape and the story evolves.

Read a lot in the genre you want to write in. Take note of things that inspire you. Listen, you never know when you will hear something that can become a story.

Absolutely, what better life than to be able to live in a land of magik and wonder.
