My weird obsession with strong willed and smart women aside, I was lucky enough to steal some of Stevie's time and she allowed me to pick her brain for this micro-interview.
Q1. How many books did it take until you felt like you came into your own as a writer?
Stevie: Well, I've written four books and a few short stories and I still don't think I've "come into my own." The more you write, the better you get. We're always evolving and developing, so I'm not gonna be one of those new authors that say they've already reached the top of the mountain.
2. Can you share with us a few lines or a catchy phrase from a WIP or a recent release?
Stevie: "I’m always really scared when there’s a thunderstorm. Usually Mommy or Daddy will sing to me until I fall asleep or until the rain stops, but Daddy tried to hurt me, so Mommy killed him." From the chapter of Rosie, Never Say Die: Stories of The Zombie Apocalypse.
Q3. What's a writing tip you'd give an aspiring writer that you had to learn on your own the hard way that nobody had told you about early on but you wish they would have?
Stevie: Don't take reviews personally, whether they're good or bad. Don't let them get inside your head. You're not as bad as someone says you are, and remember, there's always someone better than you, so, stay humble my friends.
There you have it folks! So please head over to Stevie's amazon author page and click on the follow tab and support another great up and coming talent in the writing world!
