Here are suggested questions to get you started:
- Which authors have inspired you?
- Which male authors write great women characters? Which female authors write great male characters?
- If someone said "Nothing against women writers, but all of my favorite crime fiction authors happen to be men," how would you respond?
- What's the best part of the writing process for you? What's the most challenging?
- Do you listen to music while writing? What's on your playlist?
- What books are on your nightstand right now?
- If you were to mentor a new writer, what would you tell her about the writing business?
