What if, once upon a time, I had taken that leap of faith?

What gave you the inspiration to write this book?
This book is the fifth in a series. I let my characters take over when I start writing. It’s like watching a movie. I am just the clumsy typist who tries to describe what I am seeing. The characters inspire and drive the story.
Who is your favorite character in the book?
That’s so hard to say. I love all my main characters. They’re all a part of me, and some of them are inspired by people I love. I am partial to Ollie and Rupert, though.
Which came first, the title or the novel?
In this case, it was the title. I had the titles for the whole series decided after the first book.
What scene in the book are you most proud of, and why?
I actually love the epilogue the best. I didn’t see that coming as I wrote the book, and it’s just such a lovely ending.
Thinking way back to the beginning, what’s the most important thing you’ve learned as a writer from then to now?
I’ve learned to be confident in my own style. I am totally untrained, so I have had situations where I’ve second-guessed myself. But I don’t do that anymore.
What do you like most about the cover of the book?
I love that I did it all myself, from taking the picture of the moon to deciding on the fonts and colors.
What new release book are you looking most forward to in 2013?
I’m looking forward to getting Uprising published.
What’s up next for you?
I’m working on Uprising (the second book in the Bonfire Chronicles). I’m also working on getting my books translated into German, French, Spanish, and Japanese.
Is there anything that you would like to add?
Thank you so much for hosting me on your blog.
