I carry a notebook with me everywhere I go and when I forget it I end up writing ideas on scraps of paper. Ideas just come to me I guess because I read a lot. I like people watching and sometimes my ideas come from watching people. I see all kinds of people. People with shaved heads, Mohawks, bald heads, and long hair.
I think about all kinds of people from different cultures. Different ages. I have to say one of my greatest influences at the moment are teens. Probably because I am around teens so much. Because I’m a teach I get to know how teens talk and think so that helps. Actually it’s pretty amazing. I get a chance to see a little bit of their secret world. It’s scary and amazing.
My stories always start with a character and then I think about who they are and they sort of answer my question and take me on an amazing journey.
