Here are her answers to my "getting to know the judge" questions:
If you are currently querying right now, please tell us about your book. (If its a WIP, tell us about it too!)
I'm querying a commercial fiction about a lead singer and her band. She's trying to move on in her life via musical comeback, but a sabotage happy rival band are getting in her way. It's about healing through music, but has a lot of raunchy musician humour. The title says it all - RAPTOR SNATCH. I'm also neck deep in a YA urban fantasy which I am super psyched about! My devotion to it is making my other WIP green with envy.
How long have you been writing?
Since I was three, but I no longer snap the crayons when I use them:)
Tell us about your writing style. Are you a plotter/outliner, or do you fly by the seat of your pants?
Bit-o-both. Usually I know a few things I want to happen, but it's a surprise how it's going to get from point A to B.
What is one piece of advice you would give new writers?
ALWAYS consider 'WHAT IF.' I think as we get older, it's hard to retain that childlike imagination. But the best ideas come from following that 'WHAT IF' scenario. What if a girl goes tumbling down a rabbit hole? What if there was a boy who was really a wizard? What if there was one ring to rule them all? Consider the what is, and then follow through with it!! Don't give up on it:)
