The hardest thing about being a writer is: No way, No Way, NO WAY is there ever enough time to write. I better live well into my hundreds, or I'll never get all the stories in my head down on paper.
The most rewarding thing about being a writer is: A reader once pulled my book from her purse, opened it to a specific page, and then read back to me a passage that had really touched her heart. In that moment I realized connecting with a reader is the most rewarding thing an author can hope for.
Advice to aspiring writers: Read everything you can get your hands on. All knowledge is worth having and you will learn something new about the craft of writing each time you crack a binding. Pay Attention to your surroundings and live in the moment. This will help you show. Edit, edit and then edit some more. In fact, don't ever assume you're done editing. Because you're not. Pray every day.
What inspires you: Love.
What do you do when you're not writing: Laundry, cleaning, gardening, cooking, tend boo-boos, cheerlead, chauffeur, play games, watch movies and READ!
