Because I read a lot, I have lots of ideas. I create a mood for myself when I want to write. If I wake up in the middle of the night and I can't go back to sleep, I write. I learn from everyone, their decisions, choices, and mistakes. I get character ideas all around me. My characters are everyday people, with everyday problems. And some of them are funny too. You will find yourself, your friends or someone you know in my books.
