I am a fiction writer, biographer as well as owner of Blue Deco Publishing. Eventually, I hope to have a regular, syndicated column, but I’m pretty happy being a novelist as well. I can not stick with one genre – having published works in dystopian, tech thriller, romcom, romance, crime drama, paranormal and sci-fi. And honestly, I prefer it that way. My interests are spread about, so why limit my creativity?
I write fiction because I have a LOT of worlds swimming around in my mind. To the average person, this sounds crazy, but other artists understand… My characters demand to be heard. They want their stories told. And I’m more than happy to oblige.
I wrote the biography portion of a book of a biker/former federal prison inmate. In the same way that I enjoy telling my characters’ stories, when a real life person strikes me as interesting, it’s always fun to know that others can learn about them as well. So, I was happy to be a part of that project.
I am a publisher because… well… I don’t know, really. It fell into my lap, and I’m just starting to run with it. It’s been a wild ride, and it’s developed a reason for me: I love when an author gets so very excited to know they’re finally published. To authors, our books our like a part of us. And not having them published is like caging that part of us in a dark, cold, lonely room. To be the reason that a part of someone is set free to be out there and to see others enjoy their works? Yeah, it’s a lot uplifting to me.
I work a LOT. I also have a tablet with a hinged keyboard so i can work from anywhere… oh, and a very large backup battery that goes with me as well. But the biggest “how” is that I love what I do. So it’s easy some days to go ‘Wow, it’s three in the morning. I’ve been at my desk for eighteen hours!” Haha!
