How do you get over the “writer’s block”?

I have so many different stories that I want to write that I just pivot to something else, I never truly suffer from writer's block.

Do you read your book reviews? How do you deal with the bad ones?

Yes. I try to learn from them, sometimes they are an opportunity to improve.

What is the feeling when you get a good review?

Validation. The euphoria lasts only a short time, though, you can't dwell on the extremes (whether good or bad).

Have you ever incorporated something that happened to you in real life into your novels?

A lot of my writing is taking benign things I have done or witnessed and twisting them into something more interesting!

What do you think, the book cover is as important as the story?

I don't believe so, but the market apparently does. Once you have an audience, no one cares about the book cover! The best-selling authors just splash their names across the cover and that is enough.
