Can you start by telling us a little about your latest book?

My pleasure! My latest book, "Echoes of Eternity," is a historical fiction novel set in the 18th century. It follows the journey of a young woman navigating love, loss, and the quest for freedom amidst the backdrop of a rapidly changing world.

What inspired you to write "Echoes of Eternity"?

The inspiration came from my fascination with history and the untold stories of women from that era. I wanted to explore their resilience and strength in the face of societal constraints.

How do you approach the research process for your historical novels?

I dive deep into historical texts, diaries, letters, and sometimes even visit the locations I’m writing about. I aim to immerse myself in the time period to ensure the details in my book are as authentic as possible.

Which character in "Echoes of Eternity" do you relate to the most, and why?

I relate most to the protagonist, Eliza. Her determination to carve out her own path and challenge the status quo mirrors my own journey as a writer and a woman.

Can you describe your writing process? Do you follow a specific routine?

I’m quite disciplined about my writing. I usually write early in the morning for a few hours before the day’s distractions begin. I outline my plots in detail but allow some flexibility for the characters to lead the story.

What are some challenges you face while writing, and how do you overcome them?

Writer’s block is a common challenge. To overcome it, I step away from the manuscript and engage in other creative activities, like painting or taking long walks. This helps clear my mind and often sparks new ideas.

How do you develop your characters? Do they change much from your initial conception?

My characters evolve as I write. I start with a basic profile, but as the story unfolds, they reveal more about themselves. This organic development often leads to richer, more nuanced characters.

How do you handle criticism and negative reviews of your work?

It’s important to remember that not everyone will resonate with your work, and that’s okay. I read constructive criticism carefully and use it to improve, but I try not to dwell on the negativity. Staying focused on the positive feedback and my love for writing keeps me grounded.
