Here is a bit about Gangsterland:
Available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble!
I also had Ansha fill out my survey, and here is what she had to say:
1.) What books from your childhood sparked your imagination?
Choose your own adventure books, Little House on the Prairie, and I actually read quite a bit of my dad's SF collection :)
2.) What gets your imagination going now?
Reading Science Journals, and watching movies. NOVA is great too.
3.) When you get writers block, how do you get past it?
I suppose I avoid writer's block by remembering to "feed the creative well" by watching movies, reading science and other things that get me thinking. Taking a walk right before I sit down to write is also helpful to get my thoughts in order.
4.) What is your writing process like? Do you plan everything out before you write it? Just go with the flow?
I'm definitely a planner. I need to outline, like creating a map, so I know where I'm headed. I just don't know how I'm getting there until I sit down to write. It always surprises me what ends up on the page. This is my favorite part about writing.
Ansha has an awesome website with all kinds of things for readers and writers alike. Check it out!
