Read an interview with the creator of the children's book -Mysterious Chills and Thrills for Kids. Ten Short Stories to Tickle the Imagination.
How long have you been writing?
I've been writing for about 12 years now, mostly fiction. I've written non-fiction and poetry and I'm interested in writing non-fiction in the future. I also write articles on writing.
How did you become involved with writing for children?
Growing up, I loved reading short story fiction and I like writing SCI-FI, fantasy stories for younger readers. Writing your characters that are usually kids, they end up in wackier adventures, which makes writing fun!
Why did you write Mysterious Chills and Thrills?
I wrote Mysterious Chills and Thrills because I love to write, love fiction and I wanted to write a book. I decided to take my writings and create a book in hopes that others who read my work, not only enjoy my stories...but can apply some situations to their own life.
Where do you get your ideas from?
This is a question often asked...I personally get my ideas from some odd places, for example...I wrote one of my stories based off of a necklace that I once had. Usually my stories start to form when I see something, whether it's a person, place or thing and I start to image different adventures happening. Once the story starts to form, my imagination takes off and most of the time...I'm not sure how my stories are going to end because I'm constantly thinking of different endings.
Who inspires you?
Every writer/author that sits down and writes and continues to write even when they feel like they may not be getting anywhere. They still stay focused, they take the time to write which may be the next bestseller that many readers will enjoy. Actors, singers, musicians are entertainers, but writers are as well. Think about the songs you listen to, the TV and movies you watch along with what you read. Writers/Authors entertain a lot and I look up to many in this field.
