The "Frequently Asked Questions" Videos

The contest continues! Win a vacation on Topsail Island and help me celebrate my 20 years as an author by clicking here to learn more. You may enter once a day.  

The short videos John and I made are now up on the video page of my website. I created these to address the questions I’m most frequently asked by readers as well as by aspiring writers. There are five videos, and they cover my start as a writer, where I “get my ideas” (which has to be the most frequently asked question!), how I create characters, my writing process, and advice for aspiring writers. We had a good time (mostly) putting these together. I hope you enjoy them!
