Where did you get the idea for the Underbelly Chronicles?
Believe it or not, at a Motley Crue concert! As all these middle-aged women flashed their boobs at drummer Tommy Lee, I remember thinking, “He must be half-incubus or something.” *thunder clap* Hmm. What if he was? The next morning, I woke up early, drove to my favorite coffee shop, and started building the Underbelly Chronicles world.
What’s your writing routine like?
I write six days a week, first thing in the morning, and save the afternoons for copy editing, reviewing page proofs, updating my web site, responding to business and fan mail, critiquing or contest judging, social networking, and READING! I don’t work evenings or Sundays. That’s family time – my time – and I need at least a couple of hours per day where I’m not looking at a glowing computer screen!
Why do you release books so infrequently?
Because I’m a slow writer, and I’m also a perfectionist. I would prefer to release fewer books at a quality level I’m happy with, than release more frequently and disappoint both readers and myself.
