How do you keep yourself motivated and disciplined? Easy – I love what I do! How do you manage your writing time with everything else you do? How has that changed from when you were starting out? For me, it’s a case of I want to succeed with my writing business, so I make time…

  Why do you write? I’ve always loved words and stories. Another thing I loved growing up was putting jigsaw puzzles together and I think story writing is very similar.
