As a writer or editor, what is your biggest challenge?

I write organically and don't necessarily have a fully fleshed out plot in my head when I start writing. Occasionally, the novel takes turns I don't expect and then I have to readjust things that happened before (or may happen after). Just getting the first draft out without micro editing is also a challenge. Things do move faster when I have a solid first draft to work with, and I can be fairly brutal with the editing process, but things stall when I try to do both at the same time.

Are you already a published author or journalist?


If you have not yet published your first book, how long has it been rolling around in your head or sitting in your computer or shelf?

No answer yet


I enjoy salsa (dancing), reading and writing. I published my debut novel, Perfection Unleashed, in June 2012. I currently have five novels published, and have won a total of nine literary awards.
