I was recently asked by author, friend and fellow member of Team PIF Gemma Wilford to answer the following
What are you working on?
I am working on my Nano novel Clarity now that Closure is out.
How does your work differ from others of its genre?
Well my work differs from others because I try to focus on characters that needed to find some type of resolve and go through some type of transformation as they go through their journey.
For example my novella Closure talks about abuse and it tells the story of a young girl who loses her mother to cancer and then her father becomes an alcoholic and makes her life unbearable and it is about a journey for both of them.
Then Clarity was inspired last year in July 2013 I woke up to the news that a beloved character from one of my favorite show Glee had passed on. The news of this character’s passing was really hard and I placed myself in how it must of felt for all those that loved him. It was then that I began this story in November for National Novel Month (Nano) and created Mia Gerard who has lost her fiancée Leo Dancy. With the help of her friends and family Mia then strives on rebuilding her life by leaving her hometown of Michigan. She then gets a job and moves to New York. It is here where she encounters Henry Watson a British Artist who falls for her immediately and she fights those feelings because she is not ready to move on.
Why do you write what you?
I love Writing and this has and will always be my passion. I love creating stories and characters that readers will love.
How does your writing process work?
My writing process begins in the late evenings and in the daytime in the weekends. I usually write in my composition book and then I write an outline and then begin typing my draft. I always play music usually movie scores and classical music.
Thank you Gemma Wilford sorry for the delay on it!
