Writers Tell All – Blog Hop

I have an extra post this week because I’m doing a blog hop called, “Writers Tell All.”


Question 1: What are you working on?

Releasing my debut novel, The 228 Legacy, on August 1st

Polishing a cozy mystery featuring an Asian-American sleuth investigating a senior home

Editing a previously shelved manuscript

Question 2: How does your writing process work?

I look around for inspiration in my daily life. When an image, a phrase, or a theme sticks, I’ll expand on it.

I do a general outline and conduct my research. Then I’ll write it out, often using more detailed chapter outlines. Afterwards, I revise for several rounds.

My story gets feedback from my critique group, and I’ll change things based on their responses.

I’ll read it again, looking for flow issues. I also line-edit it.

Then I send off my polished manuscript and hope for the best.

Question 3: Who are the authors you most admire?

Amy Tan – She really brought Asian-American fiction to the public eye.
Lisa See – I admire her ability to conduct extensive research and weave in historical facts into a compelling plot.
Kazuo Ishiguro -His versatility is amazing, and I love how his books are a commentary about the world around us.

Now it’s my turn to tag 3 people. Please check out their blogs. Who knows what you’ll find when writers tell all?
