1. What inspired you to be an author?
Mr. Clack’s freshman English class. I was listening to him one day and decided that writing a book would be fun.
2. What is your favorite book?
“The Holy Bible”-God
3. Do you ever write under a pseudonym? If not have you considered it? Why or why not?
No. I want people to know it is from me. I work hard on my books so I might as well get the credit.
4. How do you decide on character names and plots?
Most of my character’s names come from people I love. It is easy for me to remember the names of my characters like that. My mind is constantly going. Someone will say something funny or neat and I will think “Wow, that would make a good book.”
