A: I’ve been writing since grade school. My favorite class was creative writing.

Q: Where do you get your plot ideas?

Q: Do you have a favorite “brain food,” a.k.a. snack food, when writing?
A: Without a doubt soda.
Q: How do you approach a difficult scene? Do you tackle it head on or take time to mull it over?
