Here are five questions to get us started. I'd like for everyone to try answering them and posting your answers.
1) When did you start writing? Or if you've been writing all your life, then when and how did you decide to pursue publication?
2) What books/authors have influenced you?
3) Describe your writing process.
4) Tell us about your current Work In Progress and what is next for you?
5) Any advice for others or personal observations?
